In the latest episode of the ReThinking Foreign Policy Podcast, Mitchell Plitnick examines the effect of the hastily-convened press conference where Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe accused Iran of interference in the United States’ election. He examines the implications for how Iran is perceived in the United States, and also puts the whole question of external interference in the U.S.’ elections in perspective.
Next, Mitchell takes a look at the suspension of Jeremy Corbyn, the one-time opposition leader of the United Kingdom. He examines the long-term controversy over antisemitism in the Labour Party and examines the context of Corbyn’s suspension as well as how much of this is motivated by anti-progressive politics and how much by a genuine desire to combat antisemitism.
