Election Security; Is Mitch McConnell A Russian Asset; Bowling And 'The Big Lebowski'
Election systems in all 50 states were targeted by Russia in 2016. Those were the conclusions of a bipartisan Senate Intelligence report released on Thursday.

Also this hour: Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank nudged the Overton Window with this opening line from his Friday op-ed: "Mitch McConnell is a Russian asset." His post went viral on social media in response to the Senate Majority Leader's refusal to bring up for a vote multiple bipartisan bills intended to ensure the integrity of our elections.
