Ray McGovern discusses the recent indictment of 12 Russian operatives, and the “Russiagate” story in general. He explains the deliberately misleading claim that “the intelligence community” agrees Russia interfered in the 2016 election, when in reality a group of hand-picked analysts made such a claim. He also explains the person or people supposedly behind the DNC email hack, known as “Guccifer 2.0”.
