Dennis Kucinich, former U.S. Rep., and Democratic presidential candidate defended Trump on “Mornings with Maria” on Tuesday.
Kucinich described the resignation of Secretary Michael Flynn as a dangerous game being played out by the intelligence community. He defended the President and is urging Americans to wake up.
“Who knows what’s true anymore,” Dennis Kucinich said. “Secretary Flynn admitted misleading the Vice President, but I think we have to look at this a little bit deeper. A phone call from the incoming Director of National Security was intercepted and the contents given to the media, and obviously shared by intelligence officials.”
“Now what’s at the core of this,” he continued, “is an effort by some in the intelligence community to upend any positive relationship between the US and Russia,” he continued.
Kunich has blamed factions of the US intelligence community for wanting to end any positive relationship between Russia and the United States because they are hoping for a return of the cold war.
“…the American people have to know that there’s a game going on inside the intelligence community… at the bottom of all this is the fact that there are those that seek to separate the US from Russia to reignite the cold war… wake up America!!”
He did not see this as an anti-Trump game, but rather an anti-Russia game:
“It’s not just this administration. I want to remind the views and all those who are on the panel that in the closing months of the Obama administration, they put together a deal with Russia to create peace in Syria. A few days later, a military strike in Syria killed a hundred Syrian soldiers and that ended the agreement. What happened is inside the intelligence and the Pentagon there was a deliberate effort to sabotage an agreement the White House made.”
This is like “Deep State” said Kucinich.
