NEW ONESYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Independent journalist Glenn Greenwald said the Nord Stream pipeline gave Russia “enormous amounts of leverage” on “The Ingraham Angle” on Wednesday.

GLENN GREENWALD: How many things have Russia been blamed in the past five or six years by the Western media, by the EU, by neoliberals and entrenched state agents that turned out to be completely false? They even came up with a conspiracy theory. You probably remember that Russia had some super secret hypersonic weapon that caused brain damage in American diplomats that no one had ever heard of, and it turned out to be debunked even by the CIA. Why should Russia? explode their own pipeline that gives them huge amounts of leverage?

They can shut down that pipeline whenever they want, giving them exactly the power they want most.

Donald Trump was one of the leaders in harassing the Germans while being called a Putin asset or being blackmailed by the Kremlin into saying we pay you for your defense, you should buy natural gas from us, and now suddenly the pipeline explodes in the midst of this war, and we’re going to blame Russia for that?
