Inside Mueller’s cyber investigation battle plan


The public rarely hears much from Bob Mueller: he doesn’t leak or give interviews and rarely releases statements. In a special report examining decades-worth of Mueller’s speeches and testimony, Ari Melber breaks down how Mueller’s past words, actions and experiences give insight into where the Russia probe is heading. Melber shows how Mueller was warning about Russian spies using “cyber based tools” to “target” and “penetrate” U.S. institutions as early as 10 years ago and has been laser-focused on cyber warfare for decades, even going so far as to say the “cyber threat may well eclipse the terrorist threat in years to come”.
