Journalist Glenn Greenwald told Fox News on Thursday that it is calling the obvious “open war” between the intelligence community and the President-elect, Donald Trump, with Democrats “openly and cheers for the intervention of the CIA.”
Greenwald spoke to “Tucker Carlson Tonight” about reports that Trump and the US President Barack Obama had informed about unconfirmed allegations that Russian spies had collected, compromising personal and financial information about the president-elect. A dossier with the most salacious allegations published on BuzzFeed, earlier this week.
Greenwald said that Democrats and liberals “in the hope … that this unelected group in Washington will undermine it and undermine and destroy the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s presidency before he was even inaugurated, and I think what you see, is actually quite dangerous.”
The Intercept writer told Carlson that he believed that the Central Intelligence Agency supported Democrat Hillary Clinton, who during the last presidentil election, because Trump was “a threat to the CIA one of the key institutional priority of regime change in Syria.
“In addition,” Greenwald added: “Clinton wanted to have relations with a much more confrontational and belligerent attitude towards Moscow, the CIA has been fierce for decades, whereas Trump wanted to better. I think they viewed Trump as a threat to their institutional superiority, their ability to have their agenda forced on Washington.”
Greenwald also said that most of the mainstream media overly deferential in the direction of the US intelligence community, despite their reputation for skepticism about such institutions.
“Always, when it comes to national security issues, especially in the post-9/11 era … you will see this incredibly close relationship between the media and the secret services,” he said. “If you [the media] will serve their agenda, you get a spoon, get secret documents, get access, and I think that is what you will see on the fact that the media was aligned against Trump and the page with each of the want to undermine him, including the CIA.
