Devlin Barrett, who covers national security and law enforcement for The Washington Post, and Andrea Bernstein, WNYC's senior editor for politics and policy, talk about the much-discussed transcript of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s interview with the head of Fusion GPS.

@AndreaWNYC on the Deutsche Bank line of investigating: Many banks wouldn't loan to Trump bc of his history of bankruptcies. Deutsche Bank was one of the few who'd lend to him -- so the question is, who backed those loans? (Maybe someone with ties to Russia...?)

@DevlinBarrett says what leaps out to him about this transcript is he doesn't know why anyone would expect Congress to solve these riddles -- as Congress is "locked in a...partisan, bitter tug-of-war of which direction this all should go in."
