CFR Speaker Mentions Clinton Campaign McCarthyism

In a Council on Foreign Relations conference on The State of U.S.-Russia Relations, speaker Stephen Cohen warned of the McCarthyism of the Clinton campaign.

“For me, the most desultory recent development was the Clinton Administration’s decision to Kremlin bait Trump for saying that he thought it would be a good idea to cooperate with Putin and Russia. I add to that, I am not now nor have I ever been a Trump supporter but I have always been a supporter of day taunt and what the Clinton Administration has done… ( You’re talking about the Clinton campaign, the moderator corrects ) What has come out of the Clinton campaign and it comes every day to my computer. It’s McCarthyism. It’s something I’m old enough to remember the way it affected my professors. It is going to make, no matter who is president, any rational discourse about Russia in this country so much more difficult and it aggrieves me that the publications I have relied on all my life and the columnists I relied on all my life, are on board with this. They say it’s okay. It is not okay. It is bad for all of us and it needs to stop now or we’ll never get out of this new and worse Cold War with Russia.” — Stephen Cohen, American scholar and professor of Russian studies at Princeton University and New York University

In retrospect, Stephen Cohen’s concerns have become validated, especially after the election. The Clinton campaign has spiraled into an endless blame game, from blaming the FBI to the Russian government, for Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.
