A guilty plea. Another bombshell. Shadows of Russian collusion darken with evermore specificity. For those old enough to remember the Cold War, that this is with the former USSR (now run by an ex-KGB officer) casts the drama even further into a dangerous theater of the absurd.
In the Cold War, the US was a global (albeit an imperfect) leader for freedom and democracy. Today, we stand with Russia and Saudi Arabia (let that sink in) denying the science of climate change. More than just a mark of shame, the great tragedy lies in the damage being wrought.
As I discuss in detail in From Cold War to Hot Peace, Putin has been harassing me for a long time. That he now wants to arrest me, however, takes it to a new level. I expect my government to defend me and my colleagues, in public and private.
