  • 2014: Russia sends troops into Ukraine

  • and occupies the Crimean Peninsula.

  • That helps set in motion a chain of events

  • that brings us to here.

  • “I call it the Russian witch hunt.”

  • The completion of special counsel Robert Mueller's report,

  • the investigation into whether people associated

  • with Donald Trump's campaign

  • Lock him up!”

  • conspired with Russia in 2016 —

  • It's a whole big fat hoax.”

  • and whether Trump or his aides

  • tried to obstruct this investigation.

  • The people doing that investigation,

  • they're dirty cops.”

  • So how did we get here, from this to this?

  • There was no collusion,

  • there's no Russia.”

  • O.K., starting with Crimea,

  • Russia enters and eventually annexes the region from Ukraine.

  • The U.S. supports Ukraine's government,

  • so the U.S. responds with sanctions.

  • To impose a cost on Russia.”

  • Russia decides to strike back to undermine U.S. democracy.

  • Show me what hypocrisy looks like!”

  • How?

  • Use America's polarized politics

  • to turn people against each other.

  • Don't shoot!”

  • Perfect timing, because it's 2015, and here comes

  • the presidential election.

  • The months tick by.

  • Trump does well.

  • “I consider myself the presumptive nominee.”

  • Then several members of his campaign

  • get approached by people with ties to Russia.

  • Those people claim to have information that can hurt

  • the Hillary Clinton campaign.

  • See, the Russians don't like Clinton.

  • They don't want her to become president.

  • They say that she meddled in Russian affairs

  • when she was secretary of state.

  • But Trump

  • Wouldn't it be nice if we actually

  • got along with Russia?”

  • Then we learned that Russian hackers had infiltrated

  • the Democratic National Committee's computer system.

  • And just over a month later,

  • Wikileaks publishes 20,000 hacked Democratic emails.

  • All of this makes the F.B.I. more suspicious

  • of Russian meddling and suspicious

  • of ties between Trump campaign aides and Moscow.

  • Trump's campaign chairman at the time,

  • Paul Manafort, denies this.

  • We have no relationship.”

  • The F.B.I. investigates.

  • Thenelection victory, and the stakes get higher.

  • President Obama gets ready to leave office.

  • But before he does

  • The Russians were responsible for hacking the D.N.C.”

  • he announces new sanctions on Russia.

  • Enter Michael Flynn,

  • Trump's soon-to-be national security adviser.

  • He urges Russia's U.S. ambassador from Moscow

  • not to retaliate over those Obama sanctions.

  • Russia agrees.

  • That's a problem because Trump hasn't been inaugurated yet.

  • Flynn isn't part of the U.S. government.

  • He may have broken federal law by doing this.

  • Then

  • So help me God.”

  • Soon Flynn has to resign because he misled

  • the vice president and others

  • “I was disappointed.”

  • about those conversations with the Russian ambassador.

  • These chats become part of the F.B.I. investigation

  • into Russian ties with the Trump campaign.

  • The day after Flynn resigns,

  • Trump meets with F.B.I. Director James Comey.

  • According to Comey, Trump asked him

  • to stop investigating Flynn.

  • “I took it as this is what he wants me to do.”

  • Three months after that meeting, Trump fires Comey.

  • According to the White House

  • He fired him because he was not fit to do the job.

  • It's that simple.”

  • Eight days later, the Justice Department

  • taps former F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller

  • to lead the investigation

  • now that Comey is gone.

  • His inquiry now includes Comey's firing.

  • Did Trump try to obstruct the investigation by asking

  • Comey to stop investigating Flynn?

  • Let's move ahead to five months

  • after Mueller took the job.

  • He begins charging several Trump associates

  • with a variety of crimes, like lying

  • to the F.B.I. and bank fraud.

  • See, that's important because they may have

  • information that helps Mueller's investigation.

  • He can offer them lesser punishments in exchange

  • for that information.

  • Now it's been almost 11 months since Mueller

  • took over the investigation.

  • And who gets caught up in this?

  • Michael Cohen, Trump's personal lawyer.

  • He's mostly charged with crimes

  • that aren't part of the Mueller investigation.

  • Mr. Cohen will continue to cooperate.”

  • But Mueller wants to talk to him

  • to see if he knows anything about Trump business dealings

  • in Russia while Trump was running for president.

  • How do you feel about you may have changed an election?”

  • By the time Cohen testifies before Congress,

  • it's clear he's done being loyal to Trump.

  • He is a racist.

  • He is a con man.

  • And he is a cheat.”

  • And so we come to the present, about five years

  • since Russia annexed Crimea.

  • The investigation

  • You wouldn't oversee a witch hunt, would you?”

  • speculation

  • There was no anything, so that's the nice part.”

  • and anticipation

  • Robert Mueller may be ready to submit his findings.”

  • are all in the past.

  • Only the future will tell us how the Mueller report

  • will go down in American history.
