Last week, former National Security Advisor to President Trump, Michael Flynn, pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the Russian government during the presidential transition last year. Then it was revealed that a White House lawyer had informed the President that Flynn had mislead the FBI before the guilty plea. Trump tweeted that he knew about Flynn’s deception, which legal experts say indicates “obstruction of justice.” These are all the latest turns in the Robert Mueller investigation that has already brought charges against three members of the Trump campaign. Today, we discuss the investigation and what it could mean for the Trump administration and the President himself. We’re joined by RYAN GOODMAN, professor of Law at NYU joins us along with BOB DREYFUSS, investigative journalist and contributing editor for The Nation.
