Guests: Sarah Lynch, Clint Watts, Ciara Torres-Spelliscy

Ahead of Wednesday’s testimony from former special counsel Robert Mueller, we’re going to get up to speed regarding what Congress has been doing since the release of the report and what line of questioning Democrats plan to pursue to strengthen their case against the President. First, we’ll hear from Reuters reporter SARAH LYNCH who will give us a recap of what’s led us to this point and what we should look for in the testimony. Then, Marty will be joined by CLINT WATTS, a former FBI special agent and a fellow at the Alliance For Securing Democracy at the German Marshall Fund, who will discuss the Russian cyber-attack portion of Mueller’s report,  as well as CIARA TORRES-SPELLISCY, Associate professor of Law at Stetson University, who’ll give us her perspective on the obstruction of justice portion.
