Is This Thing On?: Mueller Speaks, Abortion in Missouri, and Graduation Trees

Skimm This - May 29, 2019

Special Counsel Robert Mueller turned off his “do not disturb” mode today to give a brief statement. The message: his Russia investigation is officially over and he’s clocking out. He said some words about whether President Trump committed a crime. And went back on silent. We’ll explain. Meanwhile, the last clinic that provides abortions in Missouri might have to stop doing so on Friday. This would make Missouri the first state since 1974 without access to abortion services. We’ll break this down for you. Also on today’s episode: a group that is trying to help farmers deal with stress, and grads with very green thumbs in the Philippines.
