Mueller, Trump & Russia: The Counter-Intelligence Probe Defining The Presidency

A new survey from Navigator Research says a majority of Americans — 59 percent — think Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russia and the 2016 campaign has not yet uncovered evidence of any crimes. In reality, Mueller has obtained five guilty pleas, 17 criminal indictments, and several cooperating witnesses. Meanwhile, President Trump has repeatedly, some have argued as part of a deliberate strategy to undermine investigators' credibility, called the probe a "witch hunt." The Takeaway reviews the sweeping investigation that has ensnared Trump advisor and attorney alike. Plus, we review what's at stake in Ireland's referendum on their constitutional amendment banning most abortions; and the stealthy North Korean cyberspies raking in millions for the reclusive regime.
