  1. Evelyn Farkas

One of the most outspoken and informed voices on the current debate about Russia’s role in the U.S. Presidential election, she was the Pentagon’s top Russia expert. She’s currently a National Security Contributor to NBC/MSNBC. Evelyn covers geopolitics, with a focus on Russia and North Korea.
