Rachel Maddow with Clinton Watts on Russian “active measures”

Rachel Maddow interviewed everyone’s favourite former FBI agent, Clinton Watts, this week. Watts testified earlier at the Senate Intelligence Committee. There were a number of interesting points raised in the Maddow interchange, but the most important may be that it is unlikely there was direct coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian operatives, but that Trump made active use of Russian fake news to defeat Clinton, which is, as Watt says, an odd approach for some claiming to put America first.

Will various investigations find coordination? I suspect not. Is anyone going to be able to make a case for criminality? No idea.
