That’s about right. Though Mr. Trump isn’t doing himself any favors. He should rise above the fray but he seems unable to, at least to date.
Also the “deep state” really is just the government. In too many respects is an insidious beast that works for itself primarily. It is the great unicorporate blob.

There are 500 inspectors general in just the Department of Justice. Report after report after report, when I was chairing [the House Oversight Committee], we read reports making criminal referrals to the Department of Justice and they don’t prosecute these people.”
“We could sit here all day long, look at people in the past, federal employees, violated the law documented by the inspector general, go put them in handcuffs we’ll get some credibility.”
