Glenn Greenwald on Thursday told Tucker Carlson the left supports a CIA set on destroying Donald Trump after earlier resigning from a website he co-founded, claiming editors ‘censored’ an article he wrote criticizing Joe Biden.
The journalist, part of a team that won a Pulitzer for reports about government surveillance programs based on leaks by Edward Snowden, told the Fox News host that the left’s ‘healthy skepticism of the CIA’ has ‘all disappeared’.
Greenwald, who announced his resignation from the The Intercept Thursday, added: ‘The reason it’s disappeared is because the CIA from the very first days of the Trump administration, even before he was inaugurated, devoted themselves to sabotaging the inauguration because Donald Trump questioned a few of their pieties and that can’t be done in Washington.
‘So the CIA and the deep state operative became heroes of the liberal left, the people who support the democratic party. They are now in a full union with the neocons and the Bush Cheney operatives, the CIA, Silicon valley and Wall Street.
‘That is the union of power, along with along with mainstream media outlets, that are fully behind the democratic party which is likely to at least take over one branch of government, if not all of them, in the coming election and that’s a very alarming proposition because they are authoritarian, they believe in censorship and suppression of information that exposes them in any kind of a critical light.’
Greenwald then suggested members of the CIA, DoJ, FBI and NSA now ‘tell Americans what they ought to believe’. He added: ‘They have infiltrated the means of communication domestically. If they do it through leaks, clandestine operations and through lies.’
