NPR host Kelly McEvers reports in a 2-part special, on key questions explored by special counsel Robert Mueller in the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Program 2: OBSTRUCTION
The second program covers the question of "obstruction of justice." This second major thread of Mueller's probe asks whether the Trump team sought to impede the investigation of contacts with Russia. A charge of obstruction of justice could be brought regardless of any finding about whether the campaign actually coordinated with the Russian government.
This report starts in December 2016 with the story of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. It then focuses on the President's interactions with FBI Director James Comey and explores other crucial points in the first year of both the Russia investigations and the Trump presidency.
