Compelling listening – The Report a podcast from Lawfare detailing the Mueller Report – Episode VII – Charging Decisions

10/09/2019

Lawfare has a new podcast series explaining the Mueller Report. It seeks to make the document more accessible. I found it compelling. Furthermore it is very helpful to an overseas observer like myself.

I commend this podcast to everyone.

Lawfare has a new podcast series,examining the Mueller Report,here is Episode VI

Recently, we released the first episode of a narrative audio documentary, The Report, which tells the story Robert S. Mueller lays out in his famous 448 page document. Then Mueller testified before the House of Representatives in what many people hoped would be hearings that brought the document to life. Whatever role Mueller’s testimony may or may not have played in that regard, we are pleased to bring you Episode  7 of our effort to bring the Mueller Report into narrative form.

It’s July 2016. Then-FBI Director James Comey gives a press conference explaining that, while he has recommended that the Justice Department not pursue charges against Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information, Clinton’s conduct was “extremely careless.” Evidence has never surfaced that Clinton’s account was compromised. But a Republican political operative named Peter Smith becomes obsessed with the idea that Russia might have gained access. He spends the next year trying to get ahold of Clinton emails that he thinks Russia has hacked. But he never gets to see what Special Counsel Robert Mueller makes of his efforts—because a year later, he dies by suicide.
This is a bonus episode of The Report. We’ve just finished Volume I of our podcast bringing to life Robert Mueller’s report on Russian election interference. In a few weeks, we’ll be back with new episodes on Volume II of Mueller’s report—covering President Trump’s efforts to obstruct the Russia investigation.
