Scott interviews Lyle J. Goldstein about what the “Russiagate” narrative means for America’s relationship with Russia. Scott and Goldstein remind us that a hot war would probably mean the destruction of both American and Russian cities with tactical nukes, and possibly the devastation of human civilization all over the world. For that reason it’s incredibly irresponsible of the media to push the narrative that the Russian government attacked our country during the 2016 election, and that any sign of President Trump’s conciliation toward Putin is confirmation that he’s a foreign agent.
Discussed on the show:
- “Europe Is Stuck between the United States and Russia” (The National Interest)
- Sevastopol Naval Base
