Skullduggery Extra: Wait, there's more!

Just after episode 3 of Yahoo News’ Skullduggery was recorded, the New York Times dropped their latest bombshell relating to the Russia investigation. The New York Times reported that President Trump ordered special counsel Robert Mueller to be fired last June but backed down after White House counsel Don McGahn threatened to resign. Co-hosts Michael Isikoff and Dan Klaidman weigh in on the latest story and what it could possibly mean for the investigation moving forward.

Skullduggery

Skullduggery is a new podcast from Yahoo News focused on Washington scandals in the Trump era and their impact on today’s politics. Conceived and co-hosted by Yahoo News’s Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff and Editor in Chief Daniel Klaidman, the podcast offers a deep dive into the high-stakes investigation into Russia’s effort to subvert the 2016 election and allegations of collusion by the Donald Trump presidential campaign. Every Friday, Skullduggery will break down the latest revelations in the Russia scandal, offering authoritative analysis while helping listeners discern which developments really matter and which are overblown. 

Isikoff and Klaidman won’t just be recapping the latest news on the Russia investigation, they’ll be breaking it too– just as they have since the earliest days of the 2016 election. Skullduggery will feature Yahoo News’ own exclusive reporting – as well as newsmaking interviews – making it a unique offering among political podcasts. Isikoff and Klaidman will provide historical context, offer insights and exchange old war stories to illuminate today’s probes and controversies. It will be substantive but personality driven, informal yet authoritative, feeding off the personal chemistry between two veteran reporters who have been friends and colleagues for more than twenty years.
