1/25/20 Daniel Lazare on the Democrats’ Paranoid Ukraine Fantasy

by | Jan 28, 2020 | The Scott Horton Show

Daniel Lazare discusses the ongoing impeachment proceedings against President Trump, which he calls nothing more than a continuation of the Russiagate delusion. He and Scott rehash some of the history that has led America to the point where it even feels like Russia is a serious threat to the U.S., namely the policies of Presidents Clinton, Bush, and Obama. If your version of history began yesterday, it’s easy to think something must be done in response “Russian aggression,” but if you understand what came before, none of this really looks like Russia’s fault after all. Sadly Trump is carrying on many of the same deleterious policies as cover against the kinds of accusations being leveled at him by the democrats.

Discussed on the show:

  • “Democrats Invoke Cold War Narrative To Push Impeachment” (Antiwar.com Original)
  • “Adam Schiff’s Very Scary Warmongering Speech” (Antiwar.com Original)
  • “The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun” (The Washington Post)
  • “Tulsi Gabbard 🌺 on Twitter: “I got challenged to a fun push-up contest at my town hall yesterday!… ” (Twitter)
