Michael Flynn, former national security advisor to President Donald Trump, leaves following his plea hearing on December 1.

Michael Flynn, former national security advisor to President Donald Trump, leaves following his plea hearing on December 1.

Every few weeks, there’s a new headline about the investigation into Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election. This week, it was a big one. As the Washington Post reports:

As President Trump delivered his inaugural address on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in January , his new national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, sent a text to a former business associate telling him that a plan to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East in partnership with Russian interests was “good to go,” according to a witness who spoke with congressional investigators.

How is Flynn’s texting related to Paul Manafort’s indictment? How do the congressional committees factor into this? And who is being questioned about what?

It’s tough to keep it all straight, so we sit down with Shane Harris from the Wall Street Journal to get a refresher — and an update — on the investigation.
