Guests on the Sunday morning political talk shows suggest that Russia’s involvement in the 2016 election cycle and ties between Moscow and the Trump administration is emphatically not going away anytime soon—not even with the firing of national security adviser Michael Flynn. That includes Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas appearing on NBC’s Meet The Press and former CIA director John Brennan turning up on CBS’ Face The Nation. Plus, newly-elected DNC chair Tom Perez will appear on ABC’s This Week and CNN’s State of the Union.
