Here's How Trump Is Planning to Undermine Mueller's Investigation

John Heilemann, an MSNBC analyst, explained how in one sense, Trump is a strong opponent for Mueller. | MSNBC analyst John Heilemann explained what he takes to be President Donald Trump's strategy for undermining and legal case that special counsel Robert Mueller may bring against him as a part of the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. In Heilemann's view, the president's strategy is not based around any legal considerations but around public relations. "What happens in court matters a lot, clearly, and the legal realm is super important," Heilemann said. "But the reality is, as we saw with [President Bill] Clinton and other cases, this ultimately could be a political process. Impeachment is a political process, a quasi-legal process, but not a fully legal process. So what the court of public opinion thinks matters a lot. "He continued: "And what Donald Trump. . .

Washington Appears to Be Gearing Up for a Third Gulf War

S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, a deeply contentious decision. Recent protests in the region have also led to mass killings of Palestinians.
