All Roads Lead To Putin
“Vladimir Putin resents the Pax Americana. It makes his country look third-rate by comparison, and his own autocratic regime pathetic. So he’s worked hard to erode the Western alliances that are the foundation of the peace—not by direct force, but by sabotage from within. In the United States, the sabotage is clear as day. The Republican Party, in its current incarnation, has been subverted by, and is now beholden to the interests of, the Kremlin. This sounds like hyperbole. It is not.
It is now clear that Donald Trump was, as Hillary Clinton succinctly put it in 2016, “Putin’s puppet.” If I, then a mere novelist, could understand this enough to write an entire book about it, way back in the spring of 2018, there is no way GOP politicians could not have known. Said Kevin McCarthy, future Speaker of the House, to Paul Ryan, then-current Speaker of the House, in 2016: “There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump.” – Greg Olear in Prevail
