Katrina Vanden Heuvel: Democrats ‘Making a Mistake’ Going ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ All the Time

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos,” editor and publisher of “The Nation” Katrina Vanden Heuvel said Democrats are “making a mistake going ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ all the time.”

Vanden Heuvel said, “And we have a special counsel now, which is there. And any president can’t be happy to have a special counsel four months into his presidency. But I think Democrats are making a mistake going ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ all the time. For two reasons. One, you’re distracting from Donald Trump and the Republicans’ mean-spirited, predatory agenda—tax cuts for the richest, hurting the working class, building a military defense budget, squandering diplomacy, and deregulating the economy for the sake of the richest.”

She continued, “I think Democrats have to have a bold, inclusive, populist agenda. Get it out into the country, fight on health care, fight on jobs, fight on a different engagement with the world. And make sure that the climate issue is understood to be about economics but shafting working people.”
