We'll have the latest on the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election — including communications Donald Trump Jr. had with Wikileaks and increased scrutiny on the president's son-in-law Jared Kushner -- with CBS News' Jeff Pegues, Reuters' Jonathan Landay and Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow Max Boot.
With guest host Jane Clayson.
The Russia investigations roll on quietly. A slow accumulation of contradictions, subpoenas, indictments, leads. But until and unless it adds up to something substantial, this nation sees two different stories: A president beleaguered by a Washington establishment determined to unseat him on a Trumped-up scandal. Or a presidency doomed. This hour, On Point: Making sense of the Trump-Russia story. Plus, the death of cult leader Charles Manson.
From Jane's Reading List:
CBS News: Senate Panel Interested In Russians' Request For Trump Meeting During Campaign — "CBS News has learned that a Russian national requested a meeting with Donald Trump during the presidential campaign in May 2016, and the request is at the center of the Senate Judiciary Committee's demand for more information from Jared Kushner."
Foreign Policy: America Will Survive Trump, But It Won't Ever Be The Same — "When I walked into the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, this summer, I was struck by the glowering portrait hanging in the lobby. Donald Trump is president? It seems like something out of a dystopian film. But it’s not science fiction; it’s reality. Exactly a year ago Wednesday, the voters of America, in their dubious wisdom, chose the reality TV star and real estate mogul as their 45th chief executive."
Reuters: U.S. Lawmakers Seek More Information From Trump Son-In-Law In Russia Probe -- "Jared Kushner’s lawyer failed to give the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee documents President Donald Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser received about a “Russian backdoor overture and dinner invite,” the committee’s leaders said on Thursday."
