Cokie Roberts: ‘Remarkable to Witness’ Republicans Now Being Soft on Russia
ROBERTS: "No, I don’t think so. I mean we’ve never seen division like this, except in the period before the Civil War, and then we had more. And the fact is, is that to have Republicans defending Russians is one of the more remarkable things that’s happened in my lifetime. I mean I have spent most of my life in the cold war period with Republicans vilifying Democrats for not being hard core enough against the Russians. And to suddenly have them say, oh, no problem, the Russians interfering in our elections is something remarkable to witness."
