New reports appear to show the most concrete ties yet between an associate of the Trump campaign and Russian hackers. But is it collusion?
- By Ben PaukerBen Pauker is executive editor, online, at Foreign Policy. Ben came to FP in May 2010 from World Policy Journal, where he was managing editor from 2007 to 2010. A native of New York, he grew up in Brazil, Australia, and Thailand and has written for Harper’s, the Economist, and the Chicago Tribune, among other publications. He is the co-founder of the Gastronauts, the world’s largest adventurous-eating club, and, in the course of reporting but mainly to see if it was possible, has smuggled small arms out of Central Africa.
On this week’s second episode of The E.R., FP’s executive editor for the web Ben Pauker is joined by Lawfare’s Ben Wittes and Susan Hennessey to talk the latest reporting on the Russia scandal. The panel discusses the legal definition of collusion and what a select committee could add to the alphabet soup of this investigation.
Today, the editors of Foreign Policy announced that FP and Lawfare are teaming up in a new partnership, providing an inside look into the most critical national security and legal issues facing the United States. The content partnership will deliver exclusive, in-depth analysis and commentary each week to FP readers and subscribers — and produce a major live event later this year.
