Target USA — Episode 91: Anatomy of a Russian Attack: The next time could be worse

If you’ve followed the Target USA podcast, you are familiar with our series of reports called the Anatomy of a Russian Attack. In episodes 83 through 86, we unveiled a nearly yearlong investigation into Russia’s meddling, and its attack on the U.S. election in 2016 and American democracy. On this week’s episode, we continue the investigation by digging deeper into Russia’s operation, why it appeared to be successful and the reality that what we’ve seen is possibly only the beginning. Former Office of the Director of National Intelligence general counsel Robert Litt, Dr. Christopher Paul with Rand Corporation and journalist Massimo Calabresi join us with expert context on this episode.
