On COI #65, Kyle and Will update the progress of the New START arms control treaty, which is slated for a 5-year extension after agreement was reached between President Biden and his Russian counterpart. The move may not signal a new dawn for US-Russia ties, however, as the Biden administration pursues many of the same hostile policies as his predecessor, including antagonistic military deployments in Russia’s backyard.

FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith became the first bureau official to be held accountable for the abuse of the FISA warrant process against the Trump campaign in 2016, but was given a slap on the wrist, sentenced to a mere 12 months probation.

As one of its first efforts in office, the Biden administration has embarked on a high profile campaign against “domestic terrorism,” ordering a DNI threat assessment on the phenomenon in the wake of the Capitol riot, as well as a probe into the “role of social media” in what it deems anti-government extremism. A major bout of security theater is already underway, with uniformed soldiers set to police the nation’s capital until at least April to ward off supposed “threats.”
