Robert Mueller, the former F.B.I. Director, is named special counsel for the Russian Investigation. This includes investigating ties between President Trump's campaign and Russian officials. The investigation has only just started, but now that it has, and now that Trump and his aides and allies know it exists, they are legally responsible for preserving all available information that might be relevant. Any failure to keep track of emails, messages, and other records could expose them to criminal charges down the line.
Keeping track of information delivered through apps like Confide, Signal, and WhatsApp will be hard. These apps use auto-delete technology and are usually encrypted. Any effort to delete or hide these apps will certainly be a cause for suspicion.
Do you think that Trump and his administration really do have ties to Russia? Or is this all being blown out of proportion?
Even if he does, what are the chances he will be caught?
