Is there any doubt what would have happened if Russians hacked into the RNC on Ronald Reagan's watch? It would have been an act of war.
"It would be 20,000 times worse than Watergate. They are trying to influence our election, and no one is asking why." Glenn said.
As usual, the mainstream media focused on the wrong reasons and people.
"They'll go to stupid and silly motivations like, 'Well, they're a fan of Donald Trump because he has investments.' There's no evidence of that. There's no proof of that. Or they'll say, 'Well, because Vladimir Putin doesn't like Hillary Clinton because she embarrassed him on the world stage.' True. But Putin is too smart for that. This is too big of a move just to embarrass somebody," Glenn said.
Glenn laid out the case Wednesday on his TV program and Thursday on radio behind the WikiLeaks release of 20,000 emails on the eve of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) --- and who's behind it.
First things first, it's been confirmed that Russia was behind the hack and, in effect, broke into DNC headquarters. Three separate security firms --- SecureWorks, CrowdStrike and Fidelis Cybersecurity --- have confirmed the Russian military and the new KGB, known as the FSB, were behind the cyber attacks, specifically two cyber units nicknamed Fancy Bear and Cozy Bear.
How did WikiLeaks become involved? How did the company come into possession of the emails? For now, both the Russian government and WikiLeaks have denied the emails were transferred between the two entities.
"If WikiLeaks isn't an apparatus bought and paid for by the Russian intelligence services, it is clearly a preferred partner," Glenn said.
In 2006, Julian Assange founded WikiLeaks in Australia. Previously, he hosted an interview show called the World Tomorrow, which aired on a network called RT. RT used to stand for Russia Today. According to RT's website, it is an international English language network that provides an alternate perspective on major global events and acquaints international audiences with a Russian viewpoint.
"This network is owned by the federal government of Russia. Which means, it is run by Vladimir Putin, a former KGB, FSB agent. It is pure propaganda, which goes against everything that WikiLeaks says they are. Their slogan is, 'We open governments.' Well, you're presenting your view on a government propaganda machine," Glenn said.
Another ominous link between WikiLeaks and the Russian government involves former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
In 2013, Assange reached out to Snowden, brokering the deal to get him to Russia. Snowden took sanctuary in Russia, under the watchful eye of the Russian government. At his own request, Assange now enjoys the protection of the FSB while hiding out in London.
The rabbit hole deepens with Donald Trump's campaign team.
Key members of Trump's campaign managerial team --- Carter Page, Richard Burt, and Paul Manafort --- questionably ties to Russian interests and, arguably, the Russian government. While Trump only appears to be a puppet of Putin's interference in a U.S. presidential campaign, his role helps reveal the true endgame of this latest game of Russian roulette.
"People don't want to hear this, but Russia is playing us. And Russia doesn't give a flying crap about Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. They are aiming for chaos and revolution in our streets, and that's why they attacked Hillary Clinton.
The mastermind behind Russia's chaotic goal in the West is Aleksandr Dugin, a key advisor to Putin.
"I want you to understand that Dugin is a very important guy. He believes, in his own words, Hitler didn't go far enough and that we have to cause chaos all over the world to break the system so a greater Hitler can come and play a role, and we will cobble fascists together all over the world. He is the guy in 1999 that said in the international press, 'In the next decade, America will break apart into five parts. It's going to head into revolution. And I know this because we have people in place'" Glenn said.
Putin's ultimate goal is to rebuild the Russian empire following the advice of Aleksandr Dugin, a very dangerous man.
"We'll have more on this next week. This is more important than anything we ever did with George Soros. This is very important," Glenn said.
