Rational Security on The E.R.: The “DMs on the DL” Edition
Does democracy go down in the DMs? The folks at Lawfare discuss.
The FBI is investigating an alleged kidnapping scheme involving ex-National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. Donald Trump Jr. was in direct contact with WikiLeaks during the 2016 campaign. And author and scholar Yascha Mounk — our special guest this week while both Tamara and Susan are away — breaks down the breakdown in democracy on this week’s episode of Rational Security on the E.R.
