Now that we know Intercept did a FOIA request, it’s pretty obvious that the reaction to them writing this story has done more damage to Grusch’s credibility than his previous mental health issues.
Coulhart was smart to get ahead of the story, but with apparently absolutely no proof he decided to claim the government was retaliating against Grusch using information readily available to the press, more or less. He even spurred Congressmen to get personally involved who now have egg on their face.
It’s not a good look at all, and seriously has me questioning Coulhart’s judgement. I’m interested to see his response to being blatantly wrong.
