Robert Mueller Closes in on Trump

We’re capping off the year with a discussion about the story that has more legs than your garden variety centipede: the Mueller investigation into Russian influence in the 2016 election. CAP senior fellow and in-house expert on all things Russia-related, Max Bergmann, joins Ed and Daniella on the pod to take a dive into the web of ongoing investigations that have picked up speed in the final weeks of 2018. Max helps us identify what the major players—special counsel Robert Mueller, Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, Maria Butina, and Rudy Giuliani—have been up to and what the state of play will be going into the new year. Hopefully your corkboard is as up to date as ours.
