A week has passed since special counsel Robert Mueller issued his redacted 448-page report on Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. After nearly two years—and an additional three weeks of suspense, thanks to U.S. Attorney General William Barr’s stalling efforts—the public finally got a glimpse into Mueller’s investigation, but has largely been left with more questions than answers. Daniella and Ed brought in Max Bergmann, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress and director of CAP Action Fund's Moscow Project, to discuss the contours of the report. As Bergmann puts it, the report outlines extensive collusion between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian efforts to elect him to the presidency—and, more importantly, serves as an impeachment referral for Congress. While the Mueller report in no way exonerates the president, it remains to be seen whether or not Congress will act on Mueller’s referral or how the Trump adminstration will continue to fight the facts.
