Former Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) said Americans must put party politics aside and acknowledge that the federal government is “under attack from within.” Kucinich said the “deep state” within the bureaucracy is trying to “destroy Donald Trump’s presidency.” He said there is a “politicization” of intentionally nonpartisan agencies that has resulted in leaks to the press and a “threat to our republic.”
Kucinich called the damaging leaks against President Trump a “clear and present danger” to the American way of life. He called on the anonymous leakers to have the courage to name themselves. “Our first allegiance is to our country,” he added. “Our country itself is under attack from within.” Mike Huckabee credited Kucinich with ignoring the majority of his fellow Democrats and speaking out on the crisis in a nonpartisan way.
