Tom Secker generally has a good analysis of the political landscape, ime. He generally deals in the cross-section of the security state's influence on popular culture but also delves more broadly into politics in general. Here, imo, he provides a concise accounting of the Russiagate phenomenon...hint, there's very little evidence of anything anywhere...

 

His podcast is worth a listen if you're into this sort of thing.

 

 

Russiagate has become both the gift that keeps on giving and the scandal that will not die. This week we take a look at the allegations, the perceptions and the misconceptions, examining how the ‘fake news’ crisis grew out of the claim that the Russian government hacked the 2016 US presidential election. I ask whether this is merely the latest attempt by the liberal establishment to restore their fading authority and public support, or something more complex.
