Media Roots Radio: 12 Russians Indicted, Helsinki Putin Panic, Trump’s Reversal

Abby and Robbie Martin talk about the latest Mueller indictment of 12 alleged Russian intelligence (GRU) agents in relation to the alleged Russian state-sponsored hacking of the DNC and ‘meddling’ in the 2016 US presidential election. Robbie breaks down the charges and why the indictments aren’t meant to actually bring anybody to justice but are instead meant to paint a visual narrative for public consumption. They also discuss headlines like Elon Musk donating to the GOP and Ocasio-Cortez’s Palestine controversy. Later Trump’s performance at the Helsinki summit and the hysterical media reaction is discussed in detail.
