[See NewsBusters for more.] Former Obama era CIA and Pentagon chief of staff and current MSNBC national security analyst Jeremy Bash joined The 11th Hour host Brian Williams on Friday night to discuss the intelligence community's assessment of foreign interference in the upcoming election. Naturally, Bash and Williams chose to ignore the parts of the report about China and Iran and focused exclusively on Russia with Bash alleging that Moscow has heaped tremendous benefits from their 2016 "investment."
Williams began with his usual hyperbole, "the house, we are told, is on fire. Absent a president in the fight, it's a uniquely helpless feeling, isn't it, for the remaining few of us troubled by the idea that Russia is actively engaged in a presidential election less than 90 days away."
