If you’ve ever heard the doddering old fool Stephen F. Cohen being interviewed by the creepy, reactionary John Batchelor on his WABC radio show, you will get the same talking points repeated over and over—much of them being the same sort of dark warnings about Russiagate being a McCarthyite witch-hunt that Max Blumenthal pushes on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show.
