This week’s indictment of the Russian lawyer who met with Paul Manafort and Trump’s family members marks the first time that two people from the 2016 Trump Tower meeting, one on the Trump side and one on the Russia side, have been indicted by Federal Prosecutors. MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent, Ari Melber, lays out how the office that issued the latest indictment, the Southern District of New York, has a uniquely aggressive history and why it could be problematic for Trump. Melber also reports on why it looks like Trump tried to control the office soon after his election and appears to have failed. Former U.S. Attorney who headed the SDNY, David Kelley, joins Melber exclusively for a wide-ranging interview and dishes on what he believes the connections between the Office and the Mueller probe may be.

Trump thinks he's so special he can buy everyone. It's one of the lessons his dad taught him it seems. Scum.

Shouldn't have let Trump get away with just paying a fine for Trump University. Trump should've been in jail before he got a chance to run.

Anyone starting to think that this Shutdown/Wall fight ... is more about smoke and mirrors to keep the attention off of the Mueller probe? Hard to feel any different right now.

The difference between SDNY and the Mueller investigation is that SDNY is not supervised by the Federal government and has more freedom to act independently. This is truly a separation of powers and Mueller is using that to get his information out without going through the compromised Judiciary. Trump can't threaten them as he does in DC. It was very good judgment for the American people.

This is the sort of seemy story common in banana republics with military juntas, 90% poverty and 100 million dollar mansions.

Ah, the good old days... When Giuliani had some ethics, morals and credibility. Now he's just an incompetent yes man for the worst president in US history.

I like this. Good job! Thank you for not letting this stupid wall thing dominate the news shows like he wants it to. Continue to cover the crimes and the impending doom coming his way by reporting on the true stories he wants to distract us from like this one.

New Yorkers know Trump for the fraud and con-artist that he is. That's why Trump lost in NY during the election. He couldn't even win the district that he was born and raised in.
