Political Journalism Professor Piers Robinson joins today's show to reflect on the media's coverage of the Mueller investigation and how RussiaGate should be viewed moving forward. Andrei Nekrasov, Writer and Director of the film, 'The Magnitsky Act. Behind the Scenes,' has done a great deal of research on The Magnitsky Act and how individuals connected to this piece of legislation tie in with the genesis of the RussiaGate probe. Nekrasov joins today's program to talk about some of the key events that brought about Robert Mueller's investigation and the major players who were involved in making this happen. Many progressive activists and commentators have been warning the Democratic Party establishment that their high hopes for the Mueller investigation would never be met. Political Activist & Broadcast Journalist Niko House returns to the show to discuss why he, like so many others, held this position, and why they are now feeling vindicated for taking this stance following the conclusion of Mueller's lengthy investigation. For the final two segments, Garland and Lee are joined by Tim Canova, a Former Candidate for Congress in Florida, to get his take on the conclusions of the Mueller report and how members of Congress and the mainstream media have covered this investigation. Additionally, Canova talks about some of the major divisions forming inside of the Democratic Party and how these divides could impact the 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary.
