The Candidate and the Spy: James Bamford on Israel's Secret Collusion with Trump to Win 2016 Race

In his new book, _Spyfail: Foreign Spies, Moles, Saboteurs, and the Collapse of America's Counterintelligence_, investigative journalist James Bamford reveals that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu dispatched a secret Israeli agent to the United States in the spring of 2016 to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. The agent met with advisers to Trump and offered to share secret intelligence with the campaign against Hillary Clinton. Bamford's investigation finds that while American media fixated on Russia's role in swaying the 2016 election, Israeli interference was completely ignored. He joins us from Washington, D.C., for more on what's been uncovered during his investigation. "The Israelis got what they wanted, and Trump got what he wanted, and the American public was screwed in the meantime," Bamford says.
