A lot of the talk about the Mueller Report has focused on its political and legal implications, but how will it affect U.S. foreign policy? Adelphi College's Jonathan Cristol discusses the reactions of allies and adversaries to Trump's passivity in the face of massive Russian interference in the U.S. election and congressional inaction and public apathy concerning presidential corruption. Plus, he details recent U.S. policy moves on Iran and the significance of NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg's speech to U.S. Congress.
Cristol has appeared several times on the Global Ethics Weekly podcast, discussing his book The United States and the Taliban before and after 9/11 and the Trump administration's planned withdrawal from the INF Treaty. This podcast also references recent articles that Cristol has written for CNN on the U.S. government decision to designate Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard as a terrorist organization and the significance of Stoltenberg's speech to Congress.
