Right-wing talk show host Rush Limbaugh said that former FBI Director was a member of the "deep state," a name for a shadowy group of government employees who are secretly organizing to undermine President Trump and oppose his agenda. Limbaugh explained why he made this conclusion on his show Friday.

"I am coming around to believe that James Comey has been part of an ongoing effort to entrap President Trump for the express purposes of having him legally charged with whatever offenses they could drum up," he said.

"I believe that Comey is just one of the many agents in the Washington establishment who have devoted themselves to tricknology, deceit,and all out warfare in an effort to entrap or ensnare Trump or in other ways to flat out just destroy Trump," he added.

"And the fact that it isn't working, because one thing's for sure - after yesterday, nothing changes," he concluded. "The people that hate Trump are still there and the people that love Trump are still there."

"And the people that love Trump are becoming more hated," he added.

"They cover up the fact that Trump is not a target," he said elsewhere during his show, "and they get away with five months of making it look like he is. 'He’s a bad actor! He doesn’t deserve the presidency! He’s an illegitimate, immoral pig.' They’ve had a clear field. They’ve had collusion. They’ve had conspiratorial help with the media and any other agents they wanted to bring into this — the CIA, the embeds in the deep state."

"They’ve had an army," he continued, "and they’ve had hearing after hearing where “bombshells” were supposed to drop that would destroy Trump — Sally Yates, Comey a couple times — and Trump’s still standing."

Comey's highly anticipated testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee Thursday was called a "complete vindication" by President Trump and his many supporters, including Rush Limbaugh. Detractors, on the other hand, have pointed to Comey's characterization of their private meetings as evidence that Trump was trying to improperly influence the investigations by the FBI. Even MSNBC's Chris Matthews admitted that the Russian collusion story appeared to be collapsing.
