The Scramble: Will The Mueller Report Matter?

Feb 12, 2018

Special counsel Robert Mueller has already charged several people associated with the Trump campaign with crimes uncovered in his investigation into Russian interference in our 2016 presidential election. Yet, some some believe there's a good chance he won't indict President Trump - even if he finds wrongdoing. 

Also this hour: Connecticut native Paul Manafort Jr. has a long history of amoral behavior, first transforming Washington's lobbying culture into what Time magazine called a "supermarket of influence peddling," later serving corrupt and tyrannical dictators from Nigeria to Somalia. And, he learned it all in Connecticut politics.

Lastly, a look at the 2018 Olympics. How much do we  have to dislike the Trump Administration to fall for the North Korean charm offensive?
