Explained: How Adam Schiff’s Russia-bashing is Damaging US Interests

Facts have been ignored in favour of a foreign policy narrative designed to drive America’s ‘New Cold War.’


In the final analysis, ‘facts don’t care about your feelings,’ or so they say. In the case of UkraineGate, the facts have been largely discarded in favour of a prescribed foreign policy narrative, one that’s custom-made to drive forward a New Cold War for the 21st century.

Pushback host Aaron Maté and guest Stephen F. Cohen, professor emeritus of Russian studies at New York University and Princeton University, discuss the future of US-Russia relations, and the New Cold War doctrine laid out by chief Democratic Impeachment prosecutor Adam Schiff, who claims that the US is arming Ukraine “so that we can fight Russia over there so we don’t have to fight Russia here.” Despite its complete lack of any factual grounding, America’s new ‘Red Scare‘ is not going away.
