"Former Congressman and current Fox News contributor Jason Chaffetz explains how we ended up with a politicized federal bureaucracy that actively works to promote the Democrat party agenda and undermine Donald Trump. The liberal media loves to characterize the Obama years as free of scandal. They pretend this is true because virtually every office in the executive branch worked to withhold evidence of wrongdoing, silence witness testimony, destroy federal records, classify embarrassing information, and retaliate against truth tellers. Yet these same tight-lipped lifers leaked like a sieve once President Trump was sworn in, freely promoting the illusion that everything he does is the new Watergate. Sometimes even conservatives portray the Deep State as nothing more than dumb inefficient bureaucracy. In fact, it's the opposite; the Deep State is intentional, unconstitutional, and organized. In Deep State, Jason Chaffetz reveals an entrenched leadership within the civil service that resists exposure, accountability, and responsibility. At the highest levels, they fight back, outlast, and work the system for their own advantage. And they certainly don't like disruptive forces such as Donald Trump. As Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Chaffetz was the tip of the spear challenging the Deep State and trying to hold them accountable. He and his colleagues took on the powerful forces at the IRS, the EPA, the DOJ, the Department of State, and more. The deeper he dove in, the more shocking he found the brazen approach by the power brokers. The balance of power has shifted. The Deep State has gotten used to operating anonymously and without consequence. This is a problem bigger than we can even imagine and getting worse. Unless we do something dramatic to wrest back control, we risk losing the ability to successfully challenge wrongdoing by the most powerful bureaucracy in the world. In Deep State, Chaffetz highlights the Deep State's tactics, illuminates the problems, and offers a way to fight back and win. It is important to expose the stories, but if the American People are going to win, Congress is going to have to do things differently. This book helps the concerned citizen understand what must be done--so they can demand real change"--Publisher's website.

Read "Dark Money" instead. Much better researched and cited.

Very dry writing . Not many anecdotes which can give you someone to emphasize with. Not much revealed here I didn't already know, but someone who hasn't been paying attention might find it informative. Yes, that is why you keep government to a minimum . United State style and probably most other countries government bureaucracies thwart democracy as all they care about are getting bigger and richer and more powerful.

Every American should read this book. Anyone with eyes can see this is exactly what has happened to our wonderful country. I am going to get it in the audio version and read it again that way. Wake up America!!

Jason Chaffetz resigned because he had connections to Russian money . Nobody but the Info Wars idiots believe in a "Deep State". Just more propaganda to Dumpy's uneducated base. The GOP's motto is "Keep 'em stupid".

Jason Chaffetz hits it right on with the truth about our politicized federal bureaucracy that actively works to promote the Democrat party agenda and undermine President Trump. The Deep State protects its own and hides and destroys evidence of fraud and out and out felonies. It's time for us to know what is going on and figure out what to do about it.
