Election Security; Is Mitch McConnell A Russian Asset; Bowling And 'The Big Lebowski'

Jul 29, 2019

Election systems in all 50 states were targeted by Russia in 2016. Those were the conclusions of a bipartisan Senate Intelligence report released on Thursday. This comes one day after Special Counsel Robert Mueller III warned that Russian efforts to interfere in the upcoming election are happening right now. How safe are Connecticut's voting systems? 

Also this hour: Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank nudged the Overton Window with this opening line from his Friday op-ed:  "Mitch McConnell is a Russian asset." His post went viral on social media in response to the Senate Majority Leader's refusal to bring up for a vote multiple bipartisan bills intended to ensure the integrity of our elections. 

Lastly, can bowling win over the 'Lebowski' generation?
