Five Weeks After The Guardian’s Viral Blockbuster Assange-Manafort Scoop, No Evidence Has Emerged —
Glenn Greenwald has spoken and is continuing to speak truth to power - on a global scale. A solid lefty, he seems one of the few of his general disposition in the media to have avoided becoming wrapped up in the "get Trump at all costs" mentality.
Not that he has any love for Trump. He doesn't. But Greenwald recognizes that the official narrative being sold to the American people and the world with regard to Trump and Russia is based mostly in political ambition, hatred for the President on an unprecedented scale, and in an effort to circle wagons around a Washington establishment that sees Trump as an interloper and a direct challenge.
In our opinion, and we've read Greenwald for a long time, he's fair. He would probably disagree with us on a host of issues, but he is fair. He certainly should be read by everyone.

The Guardian published one of the most extraordinary and significant bombshells in the now two-plus-year-old Trump-Russia saga. “Donald Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort held secret talks with Julian Assange inside the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and visited around the time he joined Trump’s campaign,” claimed reporter and best-selling “Collusion” author Luke Harding, Dan Collyns, and a very sketchy third person whose name was bizarrely scrubbed from The Guardian’s byline for its online version but appeared in the print version: Fernando Villavicencio, described by the Washington Post, discussing this mysterious discrepancy, as “an Ecuadoran journalist and activist.”
Greenwald has/had questions about The Guardian's "story".
How could it be that Manafort, of all people, snuck into one of the most monitored, surveilled, videoed, and photographed buildings on the planet on three separate occasions without any of that ostensibly “smoking gun” visual evidence having emerged, including in The Guardian’s own story?
Why would The Guardian publish a story of this magnitude without first requiring that its Ecuadoran intelligence sources provide them with such photographic or video evidence to publish it or at least review prior to publication?
He has a few more questions that can be seen HERE.
It is encouraging to see Greenwald's work. He has helped to provide some perspective in a time when it is sorely needed.
