Russian Interference in Trump Campaign And History of Catalonia and Spain

Today, our host Mitch Jeserich is in conversation with John Nichols about the recent revelations about Russian interference in 2016 American presidential election. This Monday afternoon, Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort pled not guilty to money laundering, but the evidence is strong. John Nichols writes about politics for The Nation as its national-affairs correspondent and is the authorĀ of Horsemen of the Trumpocalypse: A Field Guide to the Most Dangerous People in America.


Then, we talk to Sebastiaan Faber, Professor of Hispanic Studies at Oberlin College, about the role of the history of Catalonia and Spain in the current crisis.
