Breaking Down the Mueller Investigation with Chris Hayes

Breaking Down the Mueller Investigation with Chris Hayes

Michele and Igor chat with MSNBC's Chris Hayes about special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation; CAP's Diana Pilipenko weighs in, breaking down the biggest developments within the investigation in the past year.

It’s been one year since special counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to investigate whether the Trump campaign worked with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election. Igor and Michele talk to Chris Hayes, MSNBC host of “All In with Chris Hayes” and author of The New York Times’ best-seller A Colony in a Nation, to get his take on the Mueller probe and why he thinks a Republican-led Congress won’t impeach the president regardless of what the investigation reveals. Hayes also discusses how it took getting caught with marijuana at the Republican National Convention to understand the widespread problems within the criminal justice system. But first, Igor and Michele talk to Diana Pilipenko, associate director of anti-corruption and illicit finance at the Center for American Progress, to break down the biggest developments within the Mueller investigation in the last year.
