In this special edition of the Podcast we meet the security expert John R Schindler, a former NSA-analyst who is now a commentator for Observer.com. The conversation is about ”what is going on in The White House!”, the constitutional crise that is now coming closer, the Russian meddling, and the security implications of all this.

Some quotes from mr Schindler during the conversation (which was recorded 17th of May in Prague during Stratcom Summit arranged by the Czech think-thank European Values):

”Trump has a childs understanding of American government”.

”You can not run a major power like this. And the damage it is doing to US leadership on the world stage is enormous”.

”When he is on the bridge of the Titanic and sees the iceberg coming let us hope he steers around it and walks away. But I don´t know if he would do that”.
