Brian Frydenborg, the journalist and author, was my guest on today’s show. He is the author of several books on the Trump/Russia connections, including his most recent book on Ukrainegate, the scandal being pushed by the Trump campaign as an attempt to discredit Joe Biden. Our conversation was a fantastic in-depth look at this scandal and how it fits into the wider Trump/Russia ties and the East vs West struggle that is quietly bubbling under the surface.

Brian Frydenborg is a freelance writer and consultant from the New York City area who has studied, written, and/or worked in public policy, politics, foreign affairs, security studies, international development, humanitarian aid, and history for two decades. In pursuit of these ends, Brian studied abroad in Japan, went to Liberia to study the UN peacekeeping mission there, went to Israel and Palestine to study the conflict there, and lived and worked for over five years in Jordan, starting in early 2014, until his return to the U.S. in mid-2019. He has been featured in Newsweek, The Jerusalem Post, the Modern War Institute at West Point, The London School of Economics and Politics Middle East Centre, Real Clear Defense, Business Insider, Small Wars Journal, and other diverse outlets.
