There are five separate investigations in Washington D.C. looking into three mysteries: Russia’s attempts to meddle in the United States presidential election of 2016, President Donald Trump’s possible ties to Russia, and who is leaking classified information.

Glenn took to the chalkboard to explain on today’s installment of Think Tank. He noted that the first investigation is concerned with only mysteries one and two, whole the remaining four investigations were concerned with all three:

— The special counsel/Robert Mueller

— The Senate Judiciary Committee

— The Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism


— The House Intelligence Committee

— The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee

Glenn did not think that we need to talk about this every day because each time it comes up, people harden their positions despite no real information coming out yet. There is nobody to pardon or imprison while investigations are ongoing.

Glenn wondered if Americans can get to a place where they will “be able to say crimes matter, if there are any crimes, on either side.”
