The National Intelligence Council’s “Foreign Threats to the 2020 U.S. Federal Elections” Report
We begin with the declassified report from the National Intelligence Council “Foreign Threats to the 2020 U.S. Federal Elections” that singles out Russia as the main attacker of our democratic elections using Ukrainian proxies who are active Russian intelligence operatives with the FSB and GRU who have close ties to Trump’s lawyer Giuliani and his former campaign manager Manafort. Anders Aslund, a professor at the Center for Eurasian and East European Studies at Georgetown University and a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council who was a Swedish diplomat in Moscow and served as an economic advisor to the governments of Russia and Ukraine and is the author of Russia’s Crony Capitalism: The Path from Market Economy to Kleptocracy, joins us. We discuss the possibility that Giuliani could be tried for treason and the intervention of former Attorney General Barr who quashed a search warrant to get into Giuliani’s electronic devices to gather evidence of his collusion with Russian intelligence operatives, one of whom now has a bounty of $250,000 on his head.
