Politics Podcast: What This Week Taught Us About Mueller’s Investigation

The week began with the office of special counsel Robert Mueller saying that Paul Manafort, a former Trump campaign chairman, had broken his plea agreement by repeatedly lying to investigators. Days later, new information emerged about possible connections between Trump associates and WikiLeaks. FiveThirtyEight contributor Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux joins the FiveThirtyEight Politics podcast to discuss how those developments tie into the broader investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
