These eye-opening articles are worth a read

To the editor:

Liberal reporters Glenn Greenwald of The Intercept and Matt Taibbi of Rolling Stone have both written eye-opening articles about the Inspector General's report on the 2016 FBI spying.

In Greenwald's story, he writes, “If it does not bother you to learn that the FBI repeatedly and deliberately deceived the FISA court into granting it permission to spy on a U.S. citizen in the middle of a presidential campaign, then it is virtually certain that you are either someone with no principles, someone who cares only about partisan advantage and nothing about basic civil liberties and the rule of law, or both. There is simply no way for anyone of good faith to read this IG Report and reach any conclusion other than that this is yet another instance of the FBI abusing its power in severe ways to subvert and undermine U.S. democracy."

"If you don’t care about that, what do you care about?” asks Greenwald.

In Taibbi's story, he writes, “Democrats are not going to want to hear this, since conventional wisdom says former House Intelligence chief Devin Nunes is a conspiratorial evildoer, but the Horowitz report ratifies the major claims of the infamous ‘Nunes memo.’”

Greenwald closes his story, “Perhaps these revelations will finally lead to a realization about how rogue, and dangerous, these police state agencies have become, and how urgently needed is serious reform. But if nothing else, it must serve as a tonic to the three years of unrelenting media propaganda that has deceived and misled millions of Americans into believing things that are simply untrue."

I doubt these liberal journalists will earn any praise for writing the truth. The articles should be easy to search for and find.
