The FBI Special Investigation into the "Russia Probe" -- what's next?

Exactly nine months ago today, the Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein, appointed Robert Mueller, a former FBI Director, to serve as Special Counsel for the U.S. Dept. of Justice to oversee the investigation into "any links and / or coordination between Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump."

Then the hyperpartisanship ensued on Capitol Hill:
Earlier this month, the House Intelligence Committee, controlled by the Republicans, issued a four-page memorandum, entitled "FISA Abuses at the DOJ and FBI" (also known as the "Nunes Memo"). In response, the Democrats from the same Committee drafted a ten-page rebuttal memo, expected to be declassified on or about Feb. 10, 2018.

The time is now ripe to have a full discussion on the state of the FBI "Russia Probe." To that end, we'll be discussing the following:

- The alleged Russian election interference.
- The links between Pres. Trump's associates and Russian officials.
- The alleged collusion between Pres. Trump's campaign and Russian agents.
- The alleged Obstruction of justice.
- The ongoing financial investigations.
- Guilty pleas of Gen. Flynn and George Papadopoulos.
- Indictments of Paul Manafort and Robert Gates.
- Finally, the "known knowns" and the "unknown unknowns."
