Professor Jed Shugerman talked with Virginia Heffernan on Trumpcast, a podcast produced by Slate, breaking down Robert Mueller’s House testimony and looking at his intentions when he set out to write the report?
I do think it’s at least worth noting and it’s a valid question – that now becomes I think a bigger concern that so much of Mueller’s stature or so much of the validity of the Mueller report was a perception that Mueller had command over every piece of this team and over every piece of this investigation. And so to the extent that there was a perception that the team had a variety of political leanings but that Mueller would keep them all in line, I think there is a valid talking point. It has to be noted that that impression does not survive yesterday. He clearly delegated enormous pieces of the investigation.
