Trump’s Minions Bury Intelligence on How the Russians Are helping Reelect the Boss
We begin with the latest whistleblower complaint made available today by the House Intelligence Committee in which the former head of the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of intelligence and Analysis, Brian Murphy, complains that the acting head of DHS Chad Wolf and his deputy Ken Cuccinelli pressured him to downplay Russian election interference and instead blame it on China and Iran. When he refused to alter the intelligence which is meant to inform state and local police forces and election officials, Murphy was sidelined and demoted. Michael Greenberger, who is the director of the Center on Health and Homeland Security at the University of Maryland joins us to discuss how these two unqualified Trump loyalists in charge of DHS also pressured their intelligence analysts to downplay the domestic terrorist threat posed by white supremacist militias and dangerously delusion groups like QAnon and the Boogaloo movement while exaggerating the activities and influence of Antifa and mischaracterizing peaceful protest movements like Black Lives Matter.
