Russia: The hacks, Putin, Trump and the way forward

Listen 00:48:59

Guests: Shane Harris, Matthew Rojansky and Kathryn Stoner

The Friday release of a report by U.S. intelligence agencies found that Russian President Vladimir Putin directly ordered a campaign to influence the outcome of the 2016 U.S. presidential election in favor of President-elect Donald Trump. The agencies, however, did not find that there was any direct tampering with voting machines. In this hour of Radio Times we’ll get a detailed look at the allegations from SHANE HARRIS, senior writer for the Wall Street Journal. Then we’ll turn to MATTHEW ROJANKSY of the Woodrow Wilson Center and Stanford University professor KATHRYN STONER for a conversation about U.S.-Russia relations, Putin’s motivations for cyberattacks and the way forward in the new Trump administration.
