Monday, March 25, 10:00 PM
CBS News will broadcast THE MUELLER REPORT: A TURNING POINT, a one-hour primetime special on Monday, March 25, (10:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
The special will be simulcast on CBS News Radio and available on CBS stations via CBS All Access. The special will be also available at 1:00 AM ET on CBSN, CBS News’ 24/7 digital streaming news service and CBS News.com.
THE MUELLER REPORT: A TURNING POINT will unpack the findings of a two-year investigation into President Donald Trump, his aides, allies and associates answering the question of whether the then candidate and his campaign coordinated with the Kremlin to win the White House and if the president obstructed justice.
On Sunday, the Attorney General reported to Congress that the Special Counsel investigation did not find that the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired or coordinated with Russia in its efforts to influence the 2016 US Presidential campaign. As far as questions about whether Trump committed obstruction of justice, the report was inconclusive. The Attorney General reported to Congress he did not find sufficient evidence that the President committed an obstruction of justice.
The special will bore in on why the Special Counsel was not able to exonerate the President on obstruction of justice. CBS News journalists will also report on what’s ahead for the President, what’s ahead for Capitol Hill and the ongoing investigation in the Southern District of New York.
CBS EVENING NEWS’ Jeff Glor will anchor the special, which will feature reports from 60 MINUTES Correspondent Scott Pelley, CBS THIS MORNING Co-Hosts Norah O’Donnell and John Dickerson, CBS Chief Washington correspondent Major Garrett, Correspondent Paula Reid, Congressional Correspondent Nancy Cordes, Justice and Homeland Security Correspondent Jeff Pegues, and from Russia Elizabeth Palmer.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has already brought charges against at least 34 people and three companies. The investigation generated guilty pleas from Mr. Trump’s former national security adviser, his ex-personal lawyer and the one-time campaign chairman and deputy chairman. So far, the pleas have resulted in more than 10 years of combined prison sentences. Additionally, Mueller has previously detailed the scope of Moscow’s election meddling charging 12 Russian intelligence officials with hacking into the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign.
THE MUELLER REPORT: A TURNING POINT will take viewers from the hacking into the DNC computers – to the troll factories in Russia – to discovering how operatives waged a cyber-espionage campaign to influence the American election. Viewers will understand who all the president’s men were, how they were involved and how their lives have been touched by this 675-day long investigation.
