The national security community has warned us that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election is only a preview of what Russia might do in the 2018 and 2020 elections. Casey Michel argues that Russian intervention in American public life is even more serious, now, than even that dire prediction.
Michel has worked as a journalist in both the U.S. and the former Soviet Union. He graduated with a Master’s degree from the Harriman Institute at Columbia University and a bachelor’s from Rice University.
Michel is the author of “How the American Right Learned to Love Moscow in the Era of Trump,” a study published for “People for the American Way” that examines the relations between Russia and the American far-right. He is currently authoring the Crossroads Asia vertical and writing magazine pieces for The Diplomat. Michel’s pieces have appeared in numerous publications, including Foreign Policy, The Atlantic, POLITICO Magazine, and more.
