Mueller Indicts Russians And The 2018 Peace On Earth Film Festival
On today's show:
- Special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities on Friday for interference in the 2016 presidential election. We speak with Evelyn Farkas, the Obama Administration's deputy assistant secretary of defense for Russia, Ukraine, and Eurasia, about the indictments.
- The 2018 Peace on Earth Film Festival kicks off March 9 at the Davis Theater in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood. We get a preview from the festival's co-founder. We also hear about the film The Secret Fatwa — which documents the Iranian government's execution of 4,000 political prisoners in 1988 — from the film's director and from a man who has stayed in the notorious Iranian prison where the executions occurred.
