The troll farm hiding in plain sight

Co-hosts Mike Isikoff and Dan Klaidman examine the latest developments in the Russia investigation. Special counsel Robert Mueller recently revealed Russian trolls plotted information warfare against the United States. Where was the U.S. intelligence community while this was happening? Could Putin be an indicted co-conspirator in the case? Skullduggery talks to Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., about the status of the Russia investigation in the House Intelligence Committee and attorney Ken McCallion who brought a lawsuit against Paul Manafort that may have led to the latest charges by Mueller.


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.
