#273 – Glenn Greenwald – Presidencies in Brazil & USA (English)

Glenn Greenwald is best known for his role in a series of reports on the
classified information made public by whistleblower Edward Snowden, a
series which won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. In February
2014 he became, along with Laura Poitras and Jeremy Scahill, one of the
founding editors of The Intercept.

Tilo meets Glenn in his home in Rio where they talk about Edward Snowden
as a „Russian spy“, as German domestic spy chief Hans-Georg Maaßen
claimed (starting at 1:15 min). Glenn then explains the political
situation in Brazil. Why is Dilma Rousseff being ousted? What’s
happening in Brazil? Who’s taking over? And why? (7:00 min)

In the final part (25:40 min) of the interview Tilo asks Glenn about the
American Presidential race of Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump. Is
the race the ultimate reality show? Why are the two most hated
politicians in America the final two choices? Is Hillary Clinton „the
lesser of two evils“? Should we be scared of Donald Trump? What makes
him uniquely dangerous? Is Trump the problem or just a symptom of the
American political system?
