    On this episode of Fault Lines, host Garland Nixon and producer Eric Ladny discuss how various narratives and events connected to RussiaGate have manipulated minds and in turn made the country less safe. Could increased animosity between the US and Russia bring about major geopolitical standoffs, and how have US policymakers been impacted?

    Guests:

    Stephen Lendman — Writer and Geopolitical Analyst | Julian Assange, Venezuela, Israel Election, and the Media

    Daniel Lazare - Journalist & Author | What Happened with George Papadopoulos & The RussiaGate Debacle

    Jim Jatras — Government and Media Relations Specialist | Why War with Russia is NOT Inevitable

    Nicole Roussell - Producer for Loud & Clear | Live from Tel Aviv: A Preview of the Israeli Elections

    For the time being, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange remains at the Embassy of Ecuador in London, but for how much longer remains unclear. Writer and geopolitical analyst Stephen Lendman returns to Fault Lines to discuss Assange's current situation, what has been unfolding in Venezuela, and his expectations for tomorrow's election in Israel.

    George Papadopoulos is one of the individuals who was caught up in Robert Mueller's investigation, and he has now written a book to detail some of his experiences. Journalist & Author Daniel Lazare joins today's show to give his take on what exactly happened to Papadopoulos and to discuss how RussiaGate has been reported on by the mainstream media.

    For many years, there has been a belief that "cooler heads will prevail" with regards to the possibility of a major military confrontation taking place between the United States and Russia. Government and Media Relations Specialist Jim Jatras returns to the program to discuss why the possibility of a war between the US and Russia is not implausible and how tensions between the two countries have escalated due in part to the RussiaGate fiasco.

    For the final segment, Garland and Eric are joined by 'Loud & Clear' Producer Nicole Roussell who is currently in Tel Aviv to cover tomorrow's Israeli election. Is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu expected to win re-election, and how has this campaign been playing out as Israelis prepare to cast their votes?
