The Russia Thing

SLOWING OUR THINKING DOWN ON THE TRUMP/RUSSIA SCANDAL

The so-called Trump/Russia scandal has dominated the news cycle for a long time now. Some may say, too long.

The left and the Democratic Party must figure out their relationship within the coalition and focus on issues that are of immediate concern to the health of our democracy.
