3/7/18 Aaron Maté on Year 1 of Russiagate and its consequences

by | Mar 10, 2018 | Interviews

Aaron Maté of The Real News joins Scott to discuss two of his latest pieces for The Nation, “Hyping the Mueller Indictment” and “What We’ve Learned in Year 1 of Russiagate.” Maté explains why he thinks the Trump-Russia collusion case is much ado about nothing and how Trump’s pre-election attempts to de-escalate tensions with Russia have been misconstrued as collusion. Scott and Maté then discuss how the centrist left, with the help of Facebook and corporate media, is using the Russiagate conspiracy to double down on the Hillary Clinton wing of the Democratic party.
