"Maybe It's a Game of Chicken"
00:36:06
In this episode of "The Investigation," as Democrats in Congress continue their battle with the Trump White House, former Special Counsel to President Clinton, Jane Sherburne joins the podcast, telling Senior Executive Producer and Co-Host Chris Vlasto that when it comes to how the Trump White House is responding to Congress" "Just saying no...was not something in our lexicon." Using her own experience managing the team that responded to an ethics investigation during President Clinton's first term, Sherburne tells "The Investigation" we could be living through a constitutional crisis if the Trump White House is "really serious about stiffing Congress." Sherburne shares her thoughts on impeachment proceedings -- "there's plenty" -- and the big mistake she thinks House Democrats are making. Senior Congressional Correspondent Mary Bruce also updates on all the latest happenings on Capitol Hill.

00:26:11
In an "Investigation" podcast exclusive, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders sits down with ABC News correspondent Kyra Phillips, Senior Executive Producer Chris Vlasto, and Senior Producer John Santucci. This wide ranging interview touches upon the aftermath of the Mueller report and the next steps for the Trump administration- including the decision to bar former White House counsel Don McGahn from complying with a congressional subpoena by turning over requested documents: "This isn�t just about Donald Trump - this is about protecting every president after this." While Sanders says that an appearance by Robert Mueller on Capitol Hill is still a "determination to be made at this point," she calls the idea that the President is trying to silence him "absolutely absurd," saying "the bottom line here is Democrats wanted something to be true that wasn't." Sanders also talks to "The Investigation" about her future as press secretary, and why -- even amid scrutiny -- she still feels "comfortable" with her credibility.

00:26:20
On the day President Trump's former fixer and lawyer Michael Cohen reports to federal prison, actor and comedian Tom Arnold joins "The Investigation" to discuss his unconventional friendship with Cohen, how they met, and even shares a discreetly recorded phone call between the two. During the 36 minute tape, Cohen dishes on President Trump: "I lost everything...because Trump had an affair with a porn star," Stormy Daniel's former lawyer Michael Avenatti: "it's called karma boomerang," even his prison sentence: "I never thought the judge was going to throw a three year freaking sentence...what they can do to anybody, it's just obscene." Cohen also describes to Arnold his closed door testimony to Congress and tells "The Investigation" -- "I needed to get the truth out there"

00:46:50
Former Trump Campaign staffer Michael Caputo says he hasn't spoken to President Trump since Inauguration Day due to the pending investigations on Capitol Hill and the Special Counsel.

"The Investigation" co-anchors Kyra Phillips and Chris Vlasto also sit down with former Congressional investigator and later Congresswoman Barbara Comstock, who gives insight into all the nuts and bolts of a Congressional Investigation, including the pending issue over access to President Trump's tax returns: "We never went after tax returns because that was Nixonian."

"Color-Coded Redactions" - What Won't We See in the Mueller Report
00:31:41
675 days, 2800 subpoenas and 500 witness interviews later, the Mueller Report - with color-coded redactions - is expected to be made public this week. Now, the ABC News Investigative team is taking you inside the "War Room" where the team will read and report back all the details once the report is released. In this episode of "The Investigation," co-host Chris Vlasto along with John Santucci and Matt Mosk break down everything you need to know about the upcoming release of the Mueller Report with Chief White House Correspondent Jon Karl and legal analyst Dan Abrams. Karl points to one man for answers:"[Don] McGahn is a central player here, the one that is potentially the most dangerous," while Abrams breaks down the elephant in the room legal question: what constitutes obstruction of justice? Abrams concludes though, when it comes to what is in the highly anticipated Special Counsel's report: "There's going to be material which suggests that he obstructed the investigation, and if it had been anybody else, it probably would have been criminal."

Langan tells "The Investigation" about his last meeting with Assange just 20 days ago: "he looked me in the eye and I could sense�he had this real fear now�of spending the rest of his life in a Supermax federal prison in America," and what Assange really thinks about Roger Stone and Donald Trump,Jr.: "he said, 'those bunch of clowns�couldn't conspire and organize this kind of thing.'"

Investigation or "Opposition Research"?
00:32:28
In this episode of The Investigation, the team analyzes the congressional call for President Trump's tax returns. Robert Driscoll, attorney for former White House personnel security director Carl Kline, joins to discuss a whistleblower's allegations that some security clearance applications granted were not in the best interest of national security, the House Oversight Committee's investigation into the review process, and why he believes the motivation behind their probe is actually digging up "opposition research" on the first family. Additionally, ABC's Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas weighs in to forecast the pending release of the redacted Mueller report.

00:33:30
In this episode of "The Investigation," Mark Corallo, the former spokesperson for President Trump's private legal team, shares his unique and unfiltered insight into inner-workings of the Trump administration during the early days of the Mueller probe, describing the "problematic" incidents and what he calls "reckless" behavior that he says influenced his decision to leave. As one of the approximately 500 witnesses interviewed by the special counsel's office, Corallo also sets the record straight about what he told Robert Mueller's team about high-ranking White House officials, and discusses whether what he saw was obstruction or naivet�.

Trump's "Achilles' Heel"
00:35:42
Vicky Ward talks to "The Investigation" about her latest book: "Kushner Inc.: Greed. Ambition. Corruption. The Extraordinary Story of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump." Ward, an investigative reporter and best-selling author, says she interviewed over 200 sources to create a portrait of Jared and Ivanka's "unprecedented" role in the White House. She argues that while many anticipated they would serve as the Trump administration's moral center, their alleged actions behind the scenes illustrate their disregard for the rules and self-serving motivations. Instead of being a "moderating influence" on the president, Ward says, "these two are his great weakness." Later, the ABC team analyzes the ongoing investigations, how they could affect Jared and Ivanka, and the couple's overall impact since their arrival in Washington.

"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.

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.
