In this week’s episode of The E.R., FP’s David Rothkopf, Kori Schake, Julia Ioffe, and Ben Pauker get a little bit weird discussing what Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s National Security Council might look like. How close are his advisors’ ties to Vladimir Putin and Russia’s oligarchs? If all the old-guard GOP foreign-policy hands have already declared their allegiance to #NeverTrump, who fills the seats?
