For more than a year now, journalists Michael Isikoff and David Corn have been devoted to covering the Trump campaign's ties to Russia.

Isikoff was the first reporter to reveal that there was a U.S. intelligence investigation into Russian ties to a figure in the Trump campaign: Carter Page. Corn was the first to reveal the existence of the infamous Russia dossier, the unverified collection of reports alleging connections between the Trump campaign and Russia compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele.

Now, in their new book, "Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin's War on America and the Election of Donald Trump," the two men attempt to put all the pieces of the story together. The book chronicles and explores this bizarre scandal, explains the stakes, and answers one of the biggest questions in American politics: How and why did a foreign government infiltrate the country's political process and gain influence in Washington?

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has again found himself the focus of negative publicity following the posting of video of the candidate by the progressive news outlet Mother Jones during which he told supporters that he will never convince “47 percent” of Americans who he said will, “support the president no matter what,” because they believe they are “victims” entitled to be cared for by the government.

Today we want your reaction to Romney’s comments and to what people are saying about those comments today. WAMC’s Alan Chartock hosts.
