Ep. 20: The Trump-Russia Scandal Goes Global

The Middle East thread in the Trump-Russia story was substantially fleshed out this week. This thread comes with a new cast of characters — Elliot Broidy, George Nader, Erik Prince, and Israeli social media strategist Joel Zamel — and raises a new set of questions about the Trump administration’s dealings with Saudi Arabia, The United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Iran, and Russia. As the scope of the Trump-Russia story gets bigger and bigger, Josh lays out the facts we know and some theories on where this particular thread might be leading us.
