The Russians Are Coming. Again.

defenseThe world watched on March 20, 2017, as FBI Director James Comey and NSA Director Admiral Mike Rogers testified about Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election before the House Intelligence Committee. However, as John P. Carlin remarks in this Politico op-ed, the biggest bombshell to come out of the hearing went largely overlooked. Comey and Rogers both warned that the Russians will return to meddle in the 2020 presidential election and may do so as early as the 2018 midterms, a fact that should chill every American, according to Mr. Carlin, Global Chair of Morrison & Foerster’s Risk + Crisis Management Group. Published on the heels of Mr. Carlin’s PBS NewsHour appearance on the FBI’s insulation from political influence, the op-ed outlines the bipartisan, coordinated steps it will take to anticipate, prevent, and respond to these threats to our fundamental democratic values.
