Episode 99: Mueller Report Rattles White House

Last Thursday after months of fighting, negotiations, and evasions, Robert Mueller’s almost 500-page redacted report was released to the public. 

There were two main conclusions: 1.) No criminal conspiracy between the president’s campaign and Moscow; 2.) Mueller did not recommend charges against Trump. Mueller did, however, find several instances where the president tried to influence or shut down the investigation.

Rudy Giuiliani and Kellyanne Conway were in long interviews on the Sunday morning shows. Today on Polilogue we explore the White House’s objectives in those interviews— and ask ourselves if the hosts facilitated or impeded those objectives. 

We found this Mueller summary on Vox extremely helpful.
