Dennis Kucinich is a former Democratic Congressman from Ohio. In a recent interview with Fox News, Kucinich aggravated many saying that there is a “high BS quotient” surrounding the claims that President Trump gave classified intel to the Russians. Full disclosure Kucinich is a contributor to the Fox News Network.
While talking to Fox News host, Shannon Bream, Kucinich made various statements debunking the anonymous sources in the Washington Post:
“If this information was so sensitive, then why did intel leak it to the Washington Post? Whoever leaked it undermined the alliance.”
Kucinich went on to report on the following:
“…something is out of control here. there is an effort here to up end the relationship with Russia. Put us at odds. It started during the Obama administration in October of 2016 when it was a peace agreement or an agreement to end the conflict with Syria and all of a sudden it was up ended by people in the Pentagon and c.i.a. So they were making policy over the president’s head. we have one president and he is being undermined by some people in intelligence.”
After using extreme precision in reading the article, Kucinich says his 16 years of working in Congress led him to believe that “tracking all these things that are said about foreign policy,” means “there’s a high BS quotient going on right here.”
The Democratic politician instead redirected his concerns to the recent leaks saying the “meter should be going off all over town.” The recent intelligence community leak came from an unknown source, and Kucinich believes that the U.S. doesn’t need to seek Russian affirmation. Kucinich went on about this saying:
“Ya know we don’t need to look to Russia for any affirmation here. We need to ask questions about why is this intelligence community trying to upend the President of the United States with these leaks? Here’s the Washington Post story (holds up physical copy of the newspaper) I mean its, and all over town people are saying the President did this and that — look, I disagree with President Trump on a number of issues, but on this one, there can only be one President and somebody in the intelligence community is trying to upend this President in order to pursue a policy direction that puts us in conflict with Russia. The question is why? And who? and we need to find out.”
