And Attorney General Jeff Sessions seems to have no plan for future Russian election meddling. Plus, Tamara is celebrating the new journal launched by the folks at War on the Rocks this week. I say that “C is for 'cookie,' and for 'cannon.'” And Shane and Susan decide that Jim Comey should release an album.
