Was FBI-staged Russian 'honeytrap' the only 'deep state' anti-Trump plot?

Comey, you may recall, was fired by Trump in May 2017 on recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. This triggered calls for the appointment of special counsel – the job that went to Comey’s friend Robert Mueller.
