Eight months and more than 100 interviews in to the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russia’s interference in the U.S. election, the committee announced today there is a long way to go.
The intel committee continues to probe the extent of Russia’s campaign, including more than 3,000 Russian-linked ads that were turned over by Facebook and whether Trump campaign officials helped decide where to target them. A potential link between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin has been at the center of a lot of questions since the beginning of the 2016 election.
Journalist, activist and New York Times best-selling author Masha Gessen has written extensively on the subject. She joins Jim Braude to discuss the latest twists in the Russia election interference investigation and her new book, “The Future Is History: How Totalitarianism Reclaimed Russia.”
