A Short History of U.S. Meddling in Foreign Elections

Quote:The Intercept
Published on Oct 1, 2018

Meddling in foreign elections is bad. I think we can all agree on that.

And almost everyone — bar Donald Trump - seems to believe that the Russian government meddled in the 2016 election. So that should be condemned.

Here's the problem, though: U.S. politicians and pundits cannot credibly object to Russian interference in U.S. elections without also acknowledging that the United States doesn't exactly have clean hands. Or are we expected to believe that Russian hackers were the first people in human history to try and undermine a foreign democracy?

In this video, I examine the ways in which the the United States has, in fact, spent the past 70 odd years meddling in elections across the world.
