How close America came to being officially pro-Moscow.
How many ways have progressives worked with the Kremlin over the years? The examples are legion. When I was researching my boo Dupes, the biggest challenge was sifting through all the self-described progressive individuals or organizations to figure out which were closet communists cloaked as liberals, and whether they collaborated with Moscow.
