Default More Secret Police?

Why does Trump continue to go head-on against the establishment with regard to détente with Russia instead of throwing in the towel like Obama did with regard to overthrowing the Morsi government in Egypt?

This from Glenn Greenwald's The Intercept:

Trump isn't cozy with Russia because he thinks it is good policy. Trump is cozy with Russia because he's up to his ass in Russian debt and owes his backers big time. If he doesn't deliver, Trump can be in HUGE trouble (impeachment, bankruptcy, jail, etc).

Greenwald is a hack and has become toxic (and has entered the alternate rightwing world of fake facts). He's just a hack now - and an apologist for Russia. Rumor has it that Greenwald is the only pro-Russian hack out there these days who isn't directly on the Russian payroll.
