Kudos to Professor Cohen. We need to hear more from him on the left’s efforts to mount a soft coup d’etat before Donald J. Trump even takes office.
Excerpt from PJ Media
Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at New York University and Princeton, spoke with Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Wednesday evening about the most recent unsubstantiated report about President-elect Donald Trump’s alleged ties to Russia. Cohen, who is also a contributing editor for The Nation , has been (fairly or unfairly) referred to as “a slavish defender of Putinism” and “Vladimir Putin’s best friend in the American media.” But he has an incisive, sharp intellect and a highly informed point of view on Russia that deserves a hearing.
Carlson asked Cohen what he thought of the salacious dossier published by BuzzFeed Tuesday.
“You’re talking about the stuff released yesterday about the sexual and financial blackmail?” Cohen asked.
“That’s right,” answered Tucker. “That he’s basically a pawn, in effect, in Russia — they’re blackmailing him to do their bidding.”
“This is, if not the endgame, if not the last chapter, an attempt to destroy Trump’s presidency before he gets to the White House,” said the professor.
“As for that document — published in BuzzFeed or whatever — I’ve seen stuff like that before in Moscow. It’s junk.”
