In a recent legal filing, Paul Manafort alleges that government leakers have pulled off an “elaborate hoax” to frame him, Tierney Sneed reports. The allegation plays into the accusation, often repeated by President Trump’s allies, that the “deep state” is conspiring against them and undermining the President’s agenda.
