In an emergency installment of the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast, the crew breaks down what is new and notable in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Friday indictment of 12 Russian intelligence agents. The charges lay out detailed accounts of how investigators believe Russian government agents conspired to hack Democratic campaign infrastructure and attempted to break into state elections systems. The news also comes days before President Trump is scheduled to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
