“Adam Schiff is seriously the most pathological liar in all of American politics that I’ve seen in all of my time covering politics and journalism,” Glenn Greenwald told Tucker Carlson last night.
“He just fabricates accusations at the drop of the hat at the other people change underwear. He’s simply lying when he just asserts over and over that the Russians or the Kremlin are behind the story. He has no idea whether or not that is true. There is no evidence to support it.”
He added, “and what makes it so much worse is that the reason that the Bidens aren’t answering basic questions about the story. Basic questions like did Hunter Biden drop that laptop off of the repair shop? Are the emails authentic? Do you know denied that they are. Do you claim that any have been altered or are any of them fabricated? Did you in fact meet with Barisma executives?”
The reason they don’t answer the questions is because the media has signaled that they don’t have to. That journalists will be attacked and vilified simply for asking,” he said.
“The whole point of the Intelligence Community since the end of World War II was that whatever propaganda the CIA produces, whatever disinformation campaigns they engaged were never supposed to be directed domestically,” Glenn said. “That was the point of the NSA, the CIA, and all those intelligence communities.”
“What we have seen since 2016 going back to the 2016 campaign is incessant involvement in U.S. domestic politics. Working with journalists to disseminate purely for partisan ends. If you want to talk about things like violating norms, and dangers to democracy, what’s more dangerous than allowing the CIA constantly to be manipulating our politics by making cover for the Biden campaign by claiming anonymously that the Russians are behind the story and therefore you disregard it. Even if the Russians why does that alleviate the responsibility of journalists to evaluate the emails and to examine whether or not Joe Biden actually engaged in misconduct?” Greenwald said.
“The much bigger point is the way that the information is being disseminated,” he added.
“It is a union of journalists who have decided that their only goal is to defend Joe Biden and election him president of the United States working with the FBI, CIA, NSA not to manipulate our adversaries or foreign governments, but to manipulate the American people for their own ends. It’s been going on for four straight years now and there’s no sign of it stopping anytime soon.”
Enter MSNBC analyst Ken Dilanian. He tried to take a shot at Glenn on Twitter:
“Glenn Greenwald appearing on Tucker Carlson’s show and reciting lines that might embarrass a Kremlin flack is peak 2020.”
Glenn shut him down and knocked him off his ever arrogant high horse by publicly exposing his collaborative relationship with the CIA.
