According to Glenn Greenwald, legendary journalist and founder of the Intercept, the Democrat establishment is doing everything in its power to end Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) chances at winning the nomination.
Democratic socialist favorite Sanders is rising in the polls, much to the chagrin of the Democrat National Committee.
Greenwald tweeted ahead of the critical Nevada caucuses on Saturday, “I hope everyone understands that, no matter how great his polling his & how uniquely popular he is, there will be a full-on war to stop Bernie.”
“These kind of people – the Dem establishment & its institutions – will do *everything* to prevent his winning. Their power is at stake.”
Greenwald was responding to a tweet from CNN political analyst Joe Lockhart defending the Democrat establishment against attacks from Sanders.
Sanders himself is acutely aware that the establishment is coming for him, because he tweeted this week, “I’ve got news for the Republican establishment. I’ve got news for the Democratic establishment. They can’t stop us.”
