Volume I of the report looks at whether there was any conspiracy or coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, related to Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 elections. Volume II of the report looks at President Trump’s efforts to interfere with the investigation itself, identifying ten such episodes, including: Trump asking then-FBI director James Comey to let the investigation of Michael Flynn go, directing White House counsel Don McGahn to fire Robert Mueller, and such. 

All of this raises the possibility that the president criminally obstructed justice, though Mueller declined to offer a conclusion either way on that question. Ken White joins the LRC panel to discuss the report, what it means, and what should be done next.
