Last Friday, Special Counsel Robert Mueller delivered the final report on his investigation to the Justice Department. On Sunday, Attorney General Bill Barr released a four-page letter summarizing the findings: the investigation did not establish coordination between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and no finding about whether the president obstructed justice. President Trump feels vindicated. Should he? Jonathan Chait joins the panel to discuss that and President Trump’s intention to put former editorial writer Stephen Moore on the Federal Reserve board.

Then, the Trump Administration wants the courts to throw out the Affordable Care Act, and the president wants Republicans to try again to come up with their own healthcare plan. Will they? Sara Kliff discusses that and the ongoing Democratic debate over healthcare, and her reporting on surprise medical bills and policy proposals to end them.
