"Putin's Revenge Part 2" on PBS Frontline
PBS Frontline aired “Putin’s Revenge Part II” tonight, Tuesday, December 19, 2017 (link).
The documentary traces Putin’s anger at Hillary Clinton to her remarks in 2013 supporting Russian dissidents.
Putin experimented with his disinformation and hacking campaigns in Ukraine in 2014, leading to a bloodless seizure of the Crimea.
Then the hack on the DNC in 2016 led to the tension between Sanders supporters and Clinton at the 2016 Democratic convention.
A media bombshell on Russian hacking in October would be immediately supplanted with Trump’s Access Hollywood fiasco, and then a slow burn from a Wikileaks release from the Russians
