Former Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) — no Republican and definitely not a conservative — said what everyone in Washington knows but refuses to say: the “deep state” within the U.S. intelligence community is attempting to overthrow President Trump.
“The political process of the United States of America being under attack by intelligence agencies and individuals in those agencies,” Kucinich said Wednesday evening on Sean Hannity’s TV show.
You have politicization of agencies that is resulting in leaks from anonymous, unknown people and the intention is to take down a president. Now, this is very dangerous to America. It’s a threat to our republic, it constitutes a clear and present danger to our way of life. So we have to be asking, what is the motive of these people? Who’s putting these leaks out? Why doesn’t somebody come forward and make a charge and put their name and reputation behind it, instead of attacking through the media and not substantiating their position?
“Our first allegiance is to our country,” Kucinich said. “This isn’t about one president, this is about the political process of the United States of America being under attack by intelligence agencies and individuals in those agencies, yes, as you said there might be good people in there, but there are certain individuals who are lifers who want to be able to direct the policy of the country. And if the president stands in their way whether it’s a Democrat or Republican they’ll just try to run that person out.”
