To learn more about what is really going on with Russia, The Armstrong and Getty Show welcomed CBS Military Analyst Major Mike Lyons to the show.

Major Lyons admitted that Russia as an antagonist needs to be taken seriously, but despite this he urges calm.

“This happens all the time.” Lyons confirmed that the intimidation tactics Russia is using are not something we haven’t seen before, and it is not something that the U.S. doesn’t do. “Everyone is just so far out of their lane right now it’s hard to keep this straight.”

Lyons is talking about the reaction by the media. The transition of power in the White House could certainly be the reason that suspicions about Russia are in the forefront.

“Everything is a big deal right now,” Lyons continued. “If everything is a big deal nothing is a big deal. Everybody needs to take a step back and recognize this administration is going to take time to get on its feet.”

Finally Major Lyons was asked about Trump’s suspected involvement with the Russians. His response:

“For anyone to think that Donald Trump is in bed with them … that’s just crazy for anyone to think that.”

Listen to the Armstrong and Getty Show weekdays from 6-9am on AM 770 KTTH.
