WELL, BERNIE’S TOO COMMUNIST TO RUN TODAY’S RUSSIA: Bernie Sanders briefed by U.S. officials that Russia is trying to help his presidential campaign.


As Walter Russell Mead wrote in 2017:

If Trump were the Manchurian candidate that people keep wanting to believe that he is, here are some of the things he’d be doing:

Limiting fracking as much as he possibly could
Blocking oil and gas pipelines
Opening negotiations for major nuclear arms reductions
Cutting U.S. military spending
Trying to tamp down tensions with Russia’s ally Iran.

“Yep,” I noted in December. “You know who did do these things? Obama. You know who supports these things now? Democrats.”
