Glenn Greenwald: 2020 Dem Candidates See "Wheels Are Falling Off The Cart Of Mueller Investigation"

|

Glenn Greenwald said if special counsel had any evidence of Trump-Russia collusion and hasn't shown it yet he would almost be guilty of treason. Greenwald said if Pelosi actually believes that Trump is serving the interests of Russia and takes her time to remove him from office you would wonder if Putin had something on Pelosi too.

"If Robert Mueller had any evidence of that and hasn't shown it to us he would almost be guilty of treason," Greenwald said Monday. "If Nancy Pelosi really believes that Donald Trump is serving the interest of Russia and decides, oh, we're going to take our time in removing him from control over the nuclear arsenal and the executive branch and the military, until we feel like we are ready to do it. You would wonder, does Putin have something on Pelosi too."





"Why would you leave in place somebody controlled by the Kremlin for two years if you really believed it, if you really have that evidence for it?" Greenwald asked.

LAURA INGRAHAM, FOX NEWS: Is reality finally sinking in for the Democrats or some of these new polls about Mueller are really what they're thinking about?

GLENN GREENWALD, THE INTERCEPT: We actually saw this during the 2018 midterm where the victorious Democratic candidates, knowing the local districts really well, almost never mentioned what the Democratic National Committee and MSNBC, excuse the redundancy, have spent the last two and a half years obsessing on to the exclusion of virtually everything else, which is not just the claim that Trump colluded with Russia, but that Russia actually controls Donald Trump in some sort of, you know, Tom Clancy type of espionage way as a result of blackmail or other kinds of leverage.

That disappeared from the winning campaigns of 2018 because they know that people don't wake up in the morning worried about Putin. And the 2020 candidates now see that the wheels are falling off the cart of the Mueller investigation and barely mentioned it at all in recognition of that fact.


Greenwald on Mueller investigation, Pelosi and impeachment threats:

GREENWALD: Just please think about how stupid that is, what [Pelosi] just said. The overriding theme of the Democrats for a two and a half years, going back to the 2016 election, as I said earlier, is that Donald Trump is blackmailed by or controlled by the Kremlin and forced to do things against the interest of his own country of the United States and in favor of this for an adversary.

Now if that were true at all, if Robert Mueller had any evidence of that and hasn't shown it to us he would almost be guilty of treason. If Nancy Pelosi really believes that Donald Trump is serving the interest of Russia and decides, oh, we're going to take our time in removing him from control over the nuclear arsenal and the executive branch and the military, until we feel like we are ready to do it. You would wonder, does Putin have something on Pelosi too. Why would you leave in place somebody controlled by the Kremlin for two years if you really believed it, if you really have that evidence for it? And of course they have none and they don't have the integrity to just admit that.
