If you’ve lost track of all the players in the Mueller investigation, you’re not alone. Since May 2017, special counsel Robert Mueller has issued over 100 criminal charges against 19 people and three companies. Most recently, 13 Russians were indicted for interfering in the US elections.

And just last week, President Donald Trump’s former deputy campaign chair (and Paul Manafort’s longtime ally) Rick Gates pleaded guilty to conspiracy and lying to the FBI.

So how do you keep track of it all? By listening to the latest episode of Today, Explained.
