Scott talks to Aaron Maté about the continuing Russiagate narrative. Democrats have far too much invested in the idea that Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton, says Maté, to ever admit that they were wrong in their hysteria. Maté reminds us that many skeptics aren’t even sure the DNC emails were hacked by anyone, let alone Russia, but may instead have been leaked from someone on the inside.
