After 18 months of intrigue, interviews and indictments, the slow and steady drip of information coming out of the Russia investigation is now more like a flood. Michael Cohen pled guilty Thursday morning in federal court to lying to Congress in its Russia investigation. He admitted that negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow actually went on well into Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, and that he discussed the project with Trump on more than three occasions — a claim the president responded to by calling him a “weak person.”

We also learned this week that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort has been feeding information to Trump's attorneys — including what the special counsel asked about during interviews, according to the New York Times — despite his plea deal with Robert Mueller. That plea deal has since fallen apart, after Mueller says Manafort lied to his agents. To explain these latest developments and more, Jim Braude was joined by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post national security reporter Greg Miller, who recently published "The Apprentice: Trump, Russia, and the Subversion of the American Democracy.”
