Alina Polyakova, David M. Rubenstein Fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe and Foreign Policy program, discusses the disinformation campaign waged by the Russian Federation and President Vladimir Putin on the United States and European democracies through election interference, cyber-attacks, and the cultivation of political allies.

Also in this episode, David Wessel evaluates the legacy of outgoing Fed Chair Janet Yellen and the challenges facing her successor, Jerome Powell. And finally, we interviewed Noha Aboueldahab, visiting fellow at the Brookings Doha Center, on transitional justice and the litigation of past crimes and atrocities, specifically in Egypt.
