I think it’s been obvious for a long time that Glenn Greenwald’s preferred candidate in the 2016 elections was Donald Trump. Surely this settles the question:
It’s not just that Glenn has — despite the the political influence of the Deep State being his top issue! — completely ignored the repeated improprieties the FBI committed on behalf of Donald Trump in 2016, improprieties it is overwhelmingly likely changed the outcome of the election. (He doesn’t mention James Comey’s multiple prejudicial statements against Clinton or the NY Bureau’s war against her in this lengthy piece either, because this would interfere with his consistent and ridiculous line that the Deep State, like all American elites, is arrayed against Trump.) He has been harshly critical of other people discussing the FBI’s repeated interventions on behalf of Trump because the only legitimate topic of discussion in re: the 2016 campaign is Hillary Clinton’s graspingly perfidious neoliberalism. But now that Trump’s propaganda wing is advancing the transparently ludicrous conspiracy theory that despite its actions the FBI was actually in the bag for Clinton in 2016, suddenly he finds the FBI’s actions in 2016 worthy of extensive comment and makes sure the comment fully supports the Trump party line, without any attempt to put the discussion into the context of the FBI’s material interventions against Clinton while slow-walking concealing its investigation into Trump. A truly amazing coincidence I’m sure he’ll be discussing further with one of the white nationalist broadcasters on Trump’s state propaganda network.
…ETA — kudos to Twitter’s most prescient satirical feed:
Now I do not support Donald Trump, but if true, my president is 100% correct that this is a much bigger story than any of Dems hysterical conspiracies & would indeed be the biggest political scandal of all time. Yet #theresistance is unconcerned bc they love the Deep State now. https://t.co/b0ludBVP5O
