It’s an abridged Fsck this Monday, as T. Greg spends the episode talking politics: the gun control debate following the school shooting in Parkland FL, and Special Counsel Robert Mueller unveiling a 37-page indictment confirming the Russians bought the American Presidency (for cheap!). Plus: Rick Gates agrees to plead guilty in order to help the Trump-Russia probe.
Our weekly summary of criminal justice f*ckery will be out this Thursday!

[CORRECTION (02/19/18 @ 3:46pm EST): On the podcast, I said “Robert” Gates is pleading guilty in Mueller’s Russia probe; it’s actually *Rick* Gates (Robert Gates was a former Secretary of Defense). The show notes are correct now! Thanks to @gortok for the correction!]
