11/13/20 Ray McGovern on the Revenge of an Outgoing Trump Administration

Ray McGovern discusses the recent personnel changes in the Trump administration and what they could mean for his final months in office. McGovern thinks that John Brennan and his allies are getting nervous that as a lame duck, Trump might decide to simply release documents that incriminate these deep-state officials for their roles in the "Russiagate" plot, and potentially even worse things. Brennan is trying to make it seem like Trump could be endangering national security with these moves—really the only thing in danger is Brennan's own skin. Discussed on the show: "RAY McGOVERN: What...

10/9/20 Charles Glass on the Illegal Campaign to Eliminate Julian Assange

Scott interviews Charles Glass about Julian Assange's extradition hearing. Glass has focused on Assange's treatment at the hands of the U.S. and British governments and their allies, including his subjection to solitary confinement, the denial of medical treatment going back to Assange's time in the Ecuadorian embassy and the illegal monitoring of communications with both his lawyers and his doctors. On these grounds alone, says Glass, Assange's prosecution should be thrown out. But more importantly, Glass reminds us how heroic Assange's work has been, as it has enabled literally...

10/9/20 Ray McGovern on the Tireless Truthers Still Pushing ‘Russiagate’

Ray McGovern discusses the lasting impact of the "Russiagate" conspiracy, which Democrats have continued to push throughout President Trump's entire first term. McGovern reminds us that according to recorded testimony released only this year, CrowdStrike (the technology tasked with investigating the DNC email leak) admitted all the way back in 2017 that they had no evidence for the allegation that Russian agents had perpetrated any sort of hack. That means that a narrative that has continued to dominate the mainstream media and Democratic political discourse for three years was known to...

9/11/20 Aaron Maté on the Deep State’s Many ‘Russiagate’ Lies

Aaron Maté revisits the many lies on which the 'Russiagate' probe into Donald Trump's campaign and presidency was founded. Maté calls the whole story what it is: a conspiracy theory. The only way someone could find all the far-fetched and flimsy pieces of evidence credible is if they were already convinced beforehand and had to make every new development fit their narrative. In particular, Maté focuses on the way figures like Joseph Mifsud and George Papadopoulos, though initially the entire basis for the FBI's probe into Trump's campaign, were quickly abandoned as the allegations became...

Russiagate is Horseshit

A fan of the show wrote wanting to know how can I not see what a Russian agent Trump is? Well: Popodopolous had no knowledge of any Russian anything. The guy who set him up was not a Russian agent, but MI-6. Carter Page was a CIA asset, not a Russian one. And they knew that all along but pretended not to while using him as the basis of the investigation. Sessions was a piece of shit, but not a traitor. He met with the ambassador in his senate office in front of his staff of all retired Army officers, and at a public speech, formalities only. Flynn was entrapped by the FBI who even...

5/15/20 Ray McGovern on the Crumbling ‘Russiagate’ Narrative

Ray McGovern reflects on the demise of "Russiagate," now that two central pieces of the narrative have fallen apart. The first comes from newly-released transcripts of the House Intelligence Committee's 2017 interview with a senior member of Crowdstrike, the firm that had supposedly provided the evidence that Russian agents were responsible for hacking the DNC's servers before the 2016 presidential election. These transcripts show the official, Shawn Henry, admitting that his firm had no conclusive evidence that someone from Russia had stolen information from the servers, but that it may...
