In the height of "choots-paw", Republicans are angry their brazen criminal collusion with the Kremlin to steal the 2016 election and undermine the U.S. government has been revealed.
Republicans are like drug dealers whose stash gets stolen and call the cops to report the theft.
After furious hair pulling and chest pounding denunciations that there was no collusion between the criminal Republican Party and Russian Agents to get Putin's puppet elected, right wing media transitioned to, Of course there was collusion but so what???
Soon when it's revealed voting machines, voting rolls, and actual cast ballots where tampered with by Russian Agents in coordination with the Republican Party, conservatives will transition to, Too bad we won! It doesn't matter that we cheated!
But, the Republicans have learned certain political lessons since the criminal traitor Nixon resigned; the key one is never apologize and when confronted with bad actions ascribe them to your political opponent. Every allegation levelled by Republicans and conservatives is, in reality, an admission of guilt and a projection of bad actions they themselves have conducted.
Thus, the Republican Party, a subsidiary of the Russian Government, is blaming President Barack Obama for their treasonous alliance with Putin and the FSB.
Republicans will do whatever possible to take power and force their vision of the American Dream onto the Nation. The Republican Dream is to turn America into a giant death camp of unending corporate bondage, where the American people work until they die and instead of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness, the Republicans will give the American people death, slavery, and the endless pit of debt slavery.
So, as further evidence of direct control of Trump, his inner circle, Republican elected officials by Russian Intelligence Operatives comes to light expect the anger, right-wing lies, and calls for Civil War from conservative domestic terrorists increase. But, the Banana Republican Party doesn't care because their enemy is the American People and conservatives will ally with anyone who helps them advance their agenda of intolerance, oppression, and adulation of the rich.
And just like that, America's* Purest Leftist Glenn Greenwald picks up the mantle once more of defending Putin and declaring there has postively been no evidence NONE!!!! Whatsoever for the media focus on Trump's ties to Russia and Vladimir Putin. Greenwald is a right-wing ratfucker always ready to attack the Democratic Party and liberals. The best part of Greenwald's latest right-wing hit piece is all the conservatives attracted to it who leave comments extolling conservative ideology and denigrating evil liberalism and leftists only to have embarrassed lefty's try to shush them. For instance:
June 28 2017, 12:37 p.m.Mr. Greenwald has correctly analyzed and pointed out the fantasy of the Left’s ‘Russia narrative’ and he should be given credit for having the courage to tell the truth.
Thank you, Mr. Greenwald.
To those of you that want to criticize him for telling the truth as he sees it, I respectfully disagree, and I will also say that I am as red/Republican as any of you, probably more so than most. Greenwald stands alone, in my opinion, among Intercept reporters who value TRUTH above political leanings.

The leftist PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER has not even mentioned the CNN firings/resignations. Leftist/liberals are liars, fascists & will be the demise of their OWN.
June 28 2017, 10:33 a.m.
What does this lengthy, deflecting dialog have to do with CNN journalists resigning over faking news?… liberalized much?

Trump does not have a “campaign against the media”. The lying, fascist, fake news, and propaganda outlets are damaging themselves. Trump only comments on it. MAGA!

Excellent article. It describes in detail what was known as the “echo chamber” during the Obama admin. The echo chamber was an endless and repetitious drum beat of false and politically motivated stories about Obama detractors that many in the media, including CNN, were happy to promote. I think it was Ben Rhodes, a close Obama associate, who actually coined the term “echo chamber” and it describes the phenomenon perfectly. You also made an excellent point that anonymous “officials” can basically assert anything they want, no matter how false, with no repercussions. It’s no secret that many in the federal government employ are Democrats and would love to see Trump destroyed. The whole thing is grotesque and a great example of why most Americans distrust the media it is supposed to rely on for factual news.
And on and on and on these right-wing trumpanzees infest the Intercept and post these MAGA lies. You would think a pure true leftist like Greenwald would be upset his post is being touted by Faux News and MAGAmericans as proof Trump is as pure as orange snow but, when you recognize Glenn Greenwald is a right-winger and always has been it becomes clear why right-wingers like his opinions.

As the SWAMP is being slowly-but-surely drained, the slimy creatures are being forced to worm their way into the sunlight, denied cover of the filthy, murky sludge of the lefty & establishment-status quo.
These lefties are in PANIC MODE, so anything goes . . . just keep flinging the swamp sludge against Prez Trump and ANY of his friends, family or hires, and HOPE something sticks to keep the dem’s concocted spy-narrative front ‘n center and in the headlines.
Of course, the left is soooooo gullible and desperate to excuse Hilly’s disastrous campaign, that these political mind-games are fertile fodder for the reality-challenged lib’s.
Well, at your own peril, dem’s . . . now the back-water stories of your beloved Obama and his lazy, hazy years of self-indulgence and stinkin’ political maneuvering are coming to light.
NONE of this was MEANT to happen, but the swamp is full of it and we’re just beginning to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

DRAIN THE SWAMP! MAGA!
