Russigate Denial

On many left-wing blogs, such as OpEdNews, there’s a large group of Russiagate-deniers. I don’t know if they’re trolls or if they just hate the Dems, the Deep State, and the cold war.

A friend, Lansing Scott says, “Yeah, I know several people like that. They believe that any talk about Russia is either to deflect blame from HRC for losing the election, or else warmongers trying to reignite a Cold War. They follow folks like Glenn Greenwald (legit) & Caitlin Johnstone (less legit), who have been railing against Maddow, Mueller, the Dems, the FBI, & anyone else who has sought investigation into Trump-Russia connections. Those Russia-deniers may have had a point worth considering in 2016, but now anyone who still holds those views is looking pretty foolish.”

I agree.

And Glenn Greenwald has now changed his opinion and believes Russiagate is for real (as reported in an article about him in The New Yorker).

See Hey, Russiagate deniers, it’s time to throw in the towel.
