Journalist David Rohde, executive editor of newyorker.com and Pulitzer Center Board member, explores his new book, "In Deep: The FBI, the CIA and the Truth about America's 'Deep State'" during a P&P Live! online event on Wednesday, April 22, 2020

According to the Politics and Prose website announcing the event, recent polls show that 74 percent of Americans believe a secret cadre of some sort is manipulating national policy. Trump supporters blame intelligence agencies, while the left, mindful of the misinformation about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, warn against the military-industrial complex.

In a deeply-reported investigation of this purported state-within-a-state, Rohde, a two-time Pulitzer-winning journalist, draws on his experience covering global and domestic politics, along with extensive interviews with CIA operatives and FBI agents, to determine whether these agencies are protecting the country or undermining it.
