Description

It's a political whodunit with Robert Mueller as lead detective. As we count down to the release of the Special Counsel's report, follow the ABC News Investigative team in tracking the Russia investigation from the Kremlin to Trump Tower and the White House. Go behind the scenes in our war room with the same team that brought you exclusive reporting on all the happenings inside a White House that's under investigation. We chase the leads across the globe and shed light on landmark moments in the investigation, from the DNC email hack to Trump Tower meetings, firings and indictments. You'll get insight from the principal players and access to our exclusive reporting in real time, as we rapidly approach the highly anticipated release of the Mueller Report.

Episode Date
"We are headed to impeachment...We're not ready"
00:35:06
"The Investigation" talks to David Bossie, Donald Trump's former deputy campaign manager, and Keith Davidson, the former attorney for adult-film star Stormy Daniels and Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal--two women who received hush money payments after allegedly having affairs with Trump.

A former chief investigator during the Clinton administration, Bossie says the current White House is not prepared to handle the onslaught of investigations or what he sees as the eventual outcome: "We are headed to impeachment."

Davidson, who negotiated with Michael Cohen to secure payment for his clients, talks about why Trump's former fixer turned against him.�He also identifies what he says was the pivotal moment during the campaign that triggered Trump to pay off Stormy Daniels. Davidson also goes on the record about his dealings with AMI, the parent company of the National Enquirer, and the "incredible meeting" he had with AMI's CEO David Pecker and Karen McDougal, whose story was later sold in a "catch and kill" technique to AMI right before the 2016 election.

"Bob Mueller Is An American Hero"
00:33:23
"The Investigation" sits down with former White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who opens up about the Special Counsel's investigation and Robert Mueller himself, calling him "an American hero." Cobb takes us inside the Trump White House, revealing his thoughts on President Trump the individual: "he is a very direct, forceful presence," to his own first day on the job: "within the first 15 minutes...Kelly replaces Reince, and Scaramucci gets fired. So I was a footnote on day one." Plus, more insight and analysis from our ABC News Investigative Team on upcoming Congressional committee hearings and more anticipated testimony from former Trump associates.

Bonus: "The Committee Will Come To Order"
00:19:22
In a special episode from "The Investigation," the ABC News investigative team breaks down the day's events on Capitol Hill. As President Trump is overseas meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jung Un, his former lawyer and fixer Michael Cohen appeared before the House Oversight Committee, addressing everything from Trump Tower Moscow to hush money payments to President Trump's SAT scores. Just recently, Cohen's lawyer Lanny Davis told "The Investigation" in episode two that his client was ready to share his personal experiences with Trump "behind closed doors" and many would agree that today, his client did just that. �

00:39:32
In a wide-ranging interview with "The Investigation," Clinton insider John Podesta reveals his thoughts on Roger Stone: "when the cell door clanks, he'll feel a bit more remorse," sitting down with the Special Counsel: "I couldn't tell which way they were going," and being victim to the 2016 email hack orchestrated by Russia: "We forget sometimes that those hacks were themselves crimes." He also details one area of President Trump's life he says deserves more scrutiny and warns of Russian interference in 2020. Then, the ABC News Investigative team previews Michael Cohen's highly anticipated testimony on Capitol Hill.
