Katrina vanden Heuvel: Democrats ‘Making a Mistake’ by Focusing So Much on Russia

The Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel said on ABC’s This Week today that the Democrats can’t put so much of their focus on Russia.

As she talked about the special counsel on Russia, she said, “I think Democrats are making a mistake going in ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ all the time for two reasons.”

It’s a distraction, she argued, from the “mean-spirited predatory agenda” being pushed by President Trump and the GOP.

She added that “resistance is not enough.”

Russia is expected to be a big topic this week, with James Comey set to testify Thursday. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said this morning that Trump would be on “shaky legal ground” if he tried to invoke executive privilege to stop Comey from testifying. Warner also said today there is no smoking gun on Russia yet.
