Glenn Greenwald’s System Update, Released on 9/30/21
When former Trump speechwriter Darren Beattie reported in June that there was evidence suggesting FBI foreknowledge of the January 6 protest at the Capitol, if not active involvement, the corporate media mocked him and others who took it seriously for being deranged conspiracy theories. But now, the New York Times just reported that the FBI had at least one informant at the Capitol on that day. On the latest SYSTEM UPDATE, Glenn Greenwald speaks to Beattie about what do know now about involvement by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. They also discuss whether concept of “right” and “left” are changing radically.
Glenn Greenwald is a journalist, constitutional lawyer, and author of four New York Times best-selling books on politics and law. His most recent book, “No Place to Hide,” is about the U.S. surveillance state and his experiences reporting on the Snowden documents around the world. Glenn co-founded The Intercept but parted ways with the company in 2020 due to the company censoring his work. His work can now be found at Substack and Rumble.
