For almost a year now, Donald Trump has neglected to acknowledge, let alone act on, the still very real Russian threat, and the circumstances in the U.S. that enable it

Since January 6 of this year, when Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, National Security Agency chief Michael Rogers, and FBI Director James Comey paid a visit to President-elect Trump at New York City’s Trump Tower, there has been a concerted effort on the part of the United States intelligence community, […]
