On Thursday, the Justice Department released a redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russia's election interference and its possible collusion with the Trump campaign. The report, which found insufficient evidence of collusion, detailed ten instances in which the president may have obstructed justice, but did not make a legal determination on the question. In the aftermath, President Trump's legal team declared "total victory," as democratic leaders accused Attorney General William Barr of deliberately distorting the report and called for its full release. We'll talk about the report and what's next.

Guests:

Katie Benner, justice department reporter, New York Times

Philip Bump, national correspondent, Washington Post

Jessica Levinson, professor of law, Loyola Law School

Zoe Lofgren, congresswoman, California's 19th Congressional District
