Find me a backgrounder on Trump / Russia / Special Counsel Investigation
January 10, 2019 2:23 PM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a good, short-ish, factual and well-sourced backgrounder on the Special Counsel Investigation that is taking up space, rent free, in so many of our minds. Ideally something that is being updated on a regular basis, but also something that is a manageable size to read and that tells a narrative that an ordinary reader who is not steeped in this stuff can follow. Thanks!

Politico has a section titled Trump Russia Scandal.

Axios has published Timeline: Every big move in the Mueller investigation, but it does not appear to have been updated recently, although it includes "Editor's note: This is an updating post."

This episode of Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart provides a comprehensive look at the many facets of the investigation in a pretty eye-opening way. It's about three weeks out of date now, but is an excellent listen.
