Ep. 196: Malcolm Nance Explains Donald Trump and Russia's Plot to Destroy American Democracy

Malcolm Nance is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. He is a career intelligence and counterterrorism officer for the United States government. In his more than three decades working in that capacity, Nance served with U.S. Special Operations forces, the Department of Homeland Security and other agencies. He has worked in the Middle East, North Africa, the Balkans, South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. 

A frequent guest contributor on MSNBC, Nance has authored several books, including the bestselling The Plot to Hack America: How Putin’s Cyberspies and WikiLeaks Tried to Steal the 2016 Election.

Nance’s new book is The Plot to Destroy Democracy: How Putin and His Spies Are Undermining America and Dismantling the West.

During this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Malcolm Nance and Chauncey discuss how Donald Trump is Russia and Vladimir Putin's agent, the overwhelming evidence that Russia colluded with Donald Trump and his inner circle to steal the 2106 presidential election and how the Russians were able to undermine American democracy by exploiting conservatives and other members of the right-wing.

Malcolm Nance also sounds the alarm about why the 2018 midterm elections may be the last chance the American people have to save the country's (and global) democracy from Trump, the Republican Party, and Vladimir Putin's autocratic plot.

In this week's episode, Chauncey DeVega offers some comments on Trump's hate rally in Montana and how white children are learning the lessons of white supremacy from their Trumpist parents. On this week's episode Chauncey continues to highlight the human cost of Donald Trump and the Republican Party's campaign of ethnic cleansing and white racial terrorism against black and brown refugees, migrants, and immigrants. At the end of this week's installment of The Chauncey DeVega Show, our intrepid host shares some emails from listeners about the importance of protest movements, and if we should in fact shun and marginalize Trump supporters.
