Professor Larson Comments for CNN on Trump and Russia
Professor Carlton Larson was quoted in a CNN report on the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia. Part of the political fallout from the association has been that President Trump appears less willing to lift sanctions on Russia that were imposed by President Obama, Larson said.
"It appeared at first he would likely lift [sanctions] on his own, but the politics around Russia have changed so quickly, he's far less likely to do so," said Larson. "If the whole media narrative is you're a puppet of Vladimir Putin, you will do things to counter that idea."
Carlton Larson's research interests focus on constitutional law and legal history, with a strong emphasis on the 18th century.
