This is the kind of war Americans weren’t expecting.
With President-elect Donald Trump still a week away from being sworn into office, the unelected powers in Washington’s foreign intelligence agencies are waging a covert battle against the incoming administration aimed at undermining the Trump presidency before it gets up and running, a muckraking journalist told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Thursday night.
And Democrats and their media allies are cheering right along.
In an eye-opening interview with the Fox News rising star, American investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald said forces in the Central Intelligence Agency who backed Hillary Clinton for the presidency before November’s vote have launched a preemptive strike to cut Trump down to size.
“There really is, at this point, obvious open warfare between this unelected by very powerful faction that resides in Washington and sees presidents come and go on the one hand, and the person that American democracy elected to be the president on the other, who’s supposed to be its chief executive,” Greenwald told Carlson.
“And there’s clearly a conflict and a lot of subversion taking place.”

Now, clearly Greenwald is no friend of the American intelligence services.
In 2013, he was the journalistic conduit who helped make the American traitor Edward Snowden a household name, after Snowden stole thousands of military and intelligence secrets while working as a contractor for the National Security Agency.
The damage Snowden was “tremendous,” a House of Representatives investigation found. And considering that Snowden is living today in the care of Vladimir Putin’s Russia, it’s a good chance the United States’ main opponents on the world stage are enjoying going to be enjoying the fruits of his espionage for a long time to come.
But that horse has left the barn. The issue now, on the cusp of the Trump presidency, is how American intelligence agencies that bet heavily on a Hillary Clinton victory in the November election are prepared to serve the incoming administration.
And according to Greenwald, the answer is a dismal, dismal no.
In a lengthy article for The Intercept, Greenwald wrote that the publication of “revelations” about Trump contained in a phony dossier cooked up by a spy employed by Trump’s political opponents are just the latest, most spectacular attack in a fight that’s going to be going on for a long time to come.
And there’s no question which side the mainstream media is taking.
As Greenwald wrote:
Almost immediately after it was published, the farcical nature of the “dossier” manifested. Not only was its author anonymous, but he was paid by Democrats (and, before that, by Trump’s GOP adversaries) to dig up dirt on Trump. Worse, he himself cited no evidence of any kind but instead relied on a string of other anonymous people in Russia he claims
