Mike Madden | Senior Advisor Sharon Burke at New America Says Ending the Worst Excesses of the War on Terror, Including Torture, Would Be “Concessions to ISIS”

Challenging Klobuchar on Ukraine War

As Democrats compete to become the new War Party – pushing for a dangerous confrontation with nuclear-armed Russia – some constituents are objecting, as Mike Madden did in a letter to Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Letter to Representative Betty McCollum

Dear Representative McCollum:

I am writing in regard to your constituent letter titled “Defending Our Democracy From Russian Attacks”. The allegations, as I understand them, are that Russia hacked the email accounts of the Democratic National Committee and Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta, and uploaded them to Wiki-Leaks, which subsequently released them to the public. Unfortunately your letter is a histrionic response to allegations that, if proven to be true, do not rise to any level approaching “an existential threat to our way of life”, “acts of aggression”, or “an attack on the American people”.

How do you measure success?
