Princeton’s Politics and Polls Podcast

I was happy to speak with Sam Wang on Princeton’s Politics & Polls Podcast on Trump, Russia and Mueller. I had a chance to talk about Manafort/Gates, Flynn, Kushner/Qatar/Rosneft, the law of conspiracy, pardons, quo warranto, etc. I noted to Sam that one indication that Trump takes Mueller’s investigation seriously is that he had never referred to Mueller by name, by Twitter or otherwise. This podcast was recorded before Trump went after Mueller last weekend by name after McCabe was fired, which seems to signal an escalation of tensions.
