Democrat Dennis Kucinich Warns of Deep State Threat Posed By Anonymous Leakers

Posted: May 18, 2017 at 6:07 am   /   by

Former Democrat Representative, and all around respectable leftist, Dennis Kucinich, appeared on Sean Hannity’s show Wednesday night to warn of the deep state threat to the President and the country posed by the anonymous leakers from the White House.

Kucinich decried the leaks to news agencies that have become more frequent and increasingly unsubstantiated as dangerous to not only the president but to the republic itself.

Well, you have a politicization of the agencies. That is resulting in leaks from anonymous unknown people and the intention is to take down a president. This is very dangerous to America. It is a threat to our republic. It constitutes a clear and present danger to our way of life. What is the motive of these people? Who’s putting these leaks out? Why isn’t somebody coming forward to make that charge and put their name and their reputation behind it instead of attacking through the media and not substantiating their position?

I couldn’t have said it better myself. While everyone is breathlessly talking about a “memo” that may or may not even exist, or discussing whether it was “reckless” of the President to share classified information in a discussion about classified things, no one in Washington seems to care that officials within the White House are engaged in highly illegal and dangerous leaking of information all with the aim to see the unseating of President Trump.

In case anyone thinks Kucinich is somehow a Trump supporter or a conservative who refuses to abandon the Trump train. This was a man who brought what was described as “the strongest liberal message” to the 2004 Democrat convention.” He was also the man who had articles of impeachment drawn up against President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney over the War in Iraq.

He had the distinction of being the only Democratic candidate in the 2008 election to have voted against invading Iraq.  In other words, he is not a traditional ally of Donald Trump. What he is, is a man who can see clearly what is going on here. An untoward, and unprecedented assault upon a sitting President Trump for reasons that one can only imagine.

Kucinich is not alone in his assessment.

Even Noam Chomsky, a man who enjoys a large level of admiration and respect among leftists, referred to the Trump-Russia collusion story as a ‘joke’ back in April, saying that the rest of the world was laughing at us. These are two people who are hardly political or partisan allies of the President who can see what a sham this whole thing has been from day one.

There is a clear and present danger to this country in D.C. and it is the national media, their irresponsible journalism, and the D.C. leakers who are disseminating the information.
