After the firing of former deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe on Friday, President Trump took aim at special counsel Robert Mueller on Twitter, and his ongoing investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. While the president has often called the investigation a “hoax” and a “witch hunt,” this weekend marked the first time Trump went after Mueller directly, sparking renewed concerns that the president may try to fire the special counsel. This hour, we look at the latest developments in the Russian investigation story, unpack the politics around its major players, and talk about where things might go from here.
