Josh examines the Washington Post's breaking story on Mueller's investigation into Trump's obstruction of justice. Josh has an interesting take on when that began--probably before Mueller was appointed.
Marshall outlines the timeframe when it became openly obvious that Trump fired Comey to stop the Russia probe. He recalls Rosenstein's saying, 'I think I saw a crime.'
But the world of hurt that is to come are the "multiple investigations" under Mueller's purview. If you wants some idea of the A-team he has hired, WIRED has a piece today about the talent Muller has assembled for the "financial investigations" .
Marshall writes about how this financial web brings in Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Mike Flynn in others into the realm of quid pro quos.
Marshall notes that the Post piece says Mueller is going into the administration and into the ring of Trump friends like Chris Ruddy who seemed to have the ear of Trump and shared confidences. These people are now witnesses.
John Dean on NPR commented that it took some 977 days before Watergate started to break and now for Trump less than 150 days. As Dean said,"this is happening so fast."
