1. Wife of 'Putin's American Apologist' interviewed by former Russia Today associate. HMMM.

even among fellow scholars, things have changed since Cohen emerged as the foremost public intellectual pushing back against accusations that Russia helped elect Trump. He has appeared on shows like Tucker Carlsonís on Fox News and called Trump "politically courageous" and "demonized" for trying to establish good relations with the Russians. "Heís gone from being a terrific Soviet historian to a commentator, to [talking] more about U.S. policy debates and what he sees as the corruption of those debates. But that isnít his academic field; his contributions arenít scholarly," says Stephen Sestanovich, a Russia expert at Columbia.

"I would say heís not in the mainstream," says Huskey. "Heís clearly an outlier" in absolving Russia for its military excursions and electoral interference. "Many have the perception that his comments make him out to be an apologist for Russia."
