Many people know how the trial of Soviet spy Alger Hiss rocked our nation during the Cold War Era, but what many people don’t know is how on earth we got to the point that hundreds of Soviet spies were able to infiltrate the highest levels of the U.S. government. Acclaimed novelist and author of the new book “Gods of Deception,” David Adams Cleveland joins Liz to share his inside knowledge about how the communists wormed their way into the upper echelons and then, by all accounts, influenced foreign policy to very a dangerous extent. And because there is nothing new under the sun, what lessons from this infamous era can we apply to today’s politics?
