Despite Trump’s Cries of “No Collusion,” Mueller Closing In


GUEST: Larry Bensky, long time award winning print and broadcast journalist, teaches political science at California State University East Bay and is currently teaching a course on the American Presidency. He has written for The Nation, magazine, and was a regular contributor to the Los Angeles Times Sunday Book Review.


BACKGROUND: Donald Trump's defensive cries of "No Collusion" on Twitter earlier this week may be premature. The insistent plea came after his former campaign chair Paul Manafort and an aide named Rick Gates turned themselves into the FBI after they were indicted on numerous charges by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

The President was also quick to distance himself from George Papadopoulos who was a lead campaign foreign policy advisor and had been indicted earlier. It was revealed on Monday that Papadopoulos had turned himself in to authorities in late July, accepted a plea deal and was cooperating with authorities. Trump tweeted, "Few people knew the young, low level volunteer named George, who has already proven to be a liar."

What are the repercussions, direct and indirect of these indictments?
