Greenwald: Democrats Shouldn’t Be Cheering On ‘Open Warfare’ from Intel Community on Trump

Glenn Greenwald warned on Fox News tonight about Democrats cheering on the “open warfare” on President-elect Donald Trump from the intelligence community.

In a piece for The Intercept earlier this week, Greenwald warned that there are Democrats and members of the media who seem to be craving “the rule of Deep State overlords”:

Democrats, still reeling from their unexpected and traumatic election loss as well as a systemic collapse of their party, seemingly divorced further and further from reason with each passing day, are willing — eager — to embrace any claim, cheer any tactic, align with any villain, regardless of how unsupported, tawdry and damaging those behaviors might be.

Greenwald told Tucker Carlson that there are Democrats hoping that an “unelected faction in Washington will undermine and subvert and destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency” before he even takes office.

He argued why elements of the intel community would oppose Trump and view him as a threat, recalling Dwight Eisenhower‘s famous warning about the military-industrial complex. And one of the big problems, Greenwald said, is how the media treats allegations from the intel community.

He said there is an “institutional fear of challenging or questioning people who have medals on their chests,” either out of fear of looking unpatriotic or losing access.
