We learned a lot more, this week, about the Russia investigation and just where Donald Trump factors into it all. On Monday, it was revealed that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein gave explicit permission last summer for Mueller to investigate possible instances of collusion.Yesterday, Dutch lawyer Alex van der Zwaan was sentenced to 30 days in prison for lying to the special counsel. And last night, The Washington Post reported that Mueller notified President Trump’s lawyers that he is currently a subject, but not a criminal target, of the investigation. But does that mean the President is in the clear?
Jim Braude was joined by Martha Coakley, former Massachusetts Attorney General, now partner at Foley Hoag, and Daniel Small, former Assistant U.S. Attorney, now a partner at Holland and Knight, to discuss.
Editor's Note: At the end of this segment, Martha Coakley weighed in on the future of Wynn Everett and we did not give her enough time to note that her firm, Foley Hoag LLP, represents Mohegan Sun in its lawsuit against the Massachusetts Gaming Commission over the Greater Boston casino license that was awarded to Wynn.
