ARI SHAPIRO, HOST:
President Trump often says a, quote, "deep state" is trying to bring him down, and some career civil servants have said they've been retaliated against after conservative media questioned their loyalty to Trump. Well, today the State Department's inspector general found that this actually happened to one high-ranking foreign policy official. And for more on this, we are joined by NPR's Bobby Allyn here in the studio.
BOBBY ALLYN, BYLINE: Hey, Ari.
SHAPIRO: What specifically was the inspector general looking into here?
