Tucker Carlson interviews Glenn Greenwald on the CIA anonymous reports asserting that Russia hacked the US elections to help Trump win.
Carlson asks Greenwald, “Should we believe the CIA assessment.”
Greenwald’s response nails the CIA’s Russian hacker “fake news” story…that is not only irresponsible but also dangerous…
“We should be extremely skeptical of it, for multiple reasons.”
“To begin with…this is a second hand report, so you have somebody whose identity is being shielded, describing what the CIA supposedly concluded, laundering that through the Washington Post. These are assertions that are being made, completely unaccompanied by any evidence whatsoever, let alone evidence that we can tough and rationally review.”
“There is all kinds of reasons to suspect the CIA’s statements, including the fact they are wrong all the time…There’s lots of reasons to view them as political actors.”
“Nobody should deny that Russia might have done this. Of course Russia might have done this. This is the kind of thing that all states do, and certainly Russia…but all you do is ask for evidence before believing it, before embracing it as true…and that alone subjects you to accusations that you might be disloyal, that you are somehow a tool for the Kremlin.”
“It’s a toxic environment that the Democrats have created…it is quite dangerous.”
“Democrats seem to be digging in further into this losing political attempt.”
