11/22/19 Aaron Maté on the Dangerous Precedent of ‘Russiagate’

Scott talks to Aaron Maté about the role John Brennan and the CIA might have played in the investigation into Trump’s ties to Russia during the 2016 election. Although Maté is a progressive, he understands how dangerous it is to have intelligence agencies with the power to overturn the results of a democratic election. In fact, this is no different than what our CIA has done in lots of other countries when America supports a regime change in favor of democracy, but then the people of that country elect someone our government doesn’t like. Maté recognizes what a dangerous precedent this sets for everyone involved.
