In Michael Cohen’s purportedly soul-baring testimony before the House Government Oversight Committee last week, there was a suggestion that federal prosecutors in New York are working on additional ongoing investigations and Cohen could not discuss them. This led to a lot of speculation that it could be a racketeering case. Say it with us: “Ken, could it be RICO?”

Josh gets a few minutes of explanation from Ken on why it’s probably not RICO, and a few other lingering legal questions from Cohen’s testimony. Then, it’s on to Paul Manafort and Roger Stone. Ken makes a prediction for Manafort’s sentence and Roger Stone miiiiiiight be in some serious trouble with Judge Amy Berman Jackson. Plus: why is James Comey writing about the Mueller report? And how should we evaluate new Attorney General Bill Barr’s decision not to recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller investigation?
