Thank you Caitlin. What you are experiencing is just what Glenn Greenwald calls out in his remarks in the last Intercepted piece.
“One can disagree with it (the idea Russia hacked the election). Lots of people do. But to cast those questions, that skepticism, that comes not only from me but from the other people the New Republic article names, such as Max Blumenthal, and Noam Chomsky, and Oliver Stone, and others — to cast that skepticism about the evidence as being supporters of Donald Trump, or apologists for Vladimir Putin, is really the lowliest kind of rhetorical tactics that has sullied and corrupted U.S. political discourse for many years.”
