Some years ago in these spaces I labeled Glenn Greenwald the least honest person in the blogosphere. As far as I’m concerned, that is still quite true… but every once in awhile honesty leaks out, even with Greenwald

It turns out even he’s had enough of the constant drumbeat of Russian collusion coming from the Democrats. He piped up on Twitter last night and the reading is nothing short of astonishing.

(I’ve added some emphasis to a few phrases for discussion points.)

Glenn Greenwald


The Mueller investigation is complete and this is a simple fact that will never go away: not one single American was charged, indicted or convicted for conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election – not even a low-level volunteer. The number is zero.

Compare what cable hosts (let’s leave them unnamed) & Democratic operatives spent two years claiming this would lead to – the imprisonment of Don, Jr., Jared, even Trump on conspiracy-with-Russia charges – to what it actually produced. A huge media reckoning is owed.

Don’t even try to pretend the point of the Mueller investigation from the start wasn’t to obtain prosecutions of Americans guilty of conspiring with Russia to influence the outcome of the election or that Putin controlled Trump through blackmail. Nobody will believe your denials.

Are we now ready to rid ourselves of the thrilling espionage fantasy that Trump is controlled by Putin and the Kremlin using blackmail? There’s no way Robert Mueller would have gone 18 months without telling anyone about this if it were true, right? How could that be justified?

The desperate attempts to salvage something from this debacle by the Mueller dead-enders are just sad. Yes, the public hasn’t read the Mueller report. But we *know* he ended his investigation without indicting a single American for conspiring with Russia to influence the election.

I think it’s going to be amusing to see how long he lasts in this position. I can’t imagine that he isn’t already catching hell from twice the number of The Usual Suspects.
