Mueller's Russia Probe Looks Like an 'Organized Crime Syndicate' Investigation


Matt Apuzzo, who contributed to the New York Times report about the expected indictment of President Donald Trump's campaign manager Paul Manafort, appeared on MSNBC to discuss the Russia investigation with Rachel Maddow.

Apuzzo said that the investigation led by special prosecutor Robert Mueller is taking on a form that resembles the structure used to prosecute an "organized crime syndicate."

He explained that the variance from normal procedure became clear when federal investigators arrived at Manafort's house with no warning to execute a search warrant, going so far as to pick the lock to enter while Manafort was presumably sleeping.

Apuzzo said the stunning move "sends a message that this is not going to be your typical slow and steady white-collar investigation.”
