On Wednesday, former Democratic Congressman Dennis Kucinich appeared on Fox News to warn viewers about a “deep state” plan to “take down” President Donald Trump.

“You have a politicization of the [intelligence] agencies that is resulting in leaks from anonymous unknown people and the intention is to take down a president,” Kucinich said, after Fox News host Sean Hannity asked him about the deep state and their attempts to undermine President Trump.

“Now, this is very dangerous to America. It’s a threat to our republic. It constitutes a clear and present danger to our way of life.”

Kucinich then slammed deep state leakers for releasing information anonymously to the mainstream media instead of coming out publicly.

“So, we have to be asking, what is the motive of these people? Who’s putting these leaks out? Why isn’t somebody coming forward to make that charge and put their name and their reputation behind it instead of attacking through the media and not substantiating their position?”
