Will Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s testimony in front of the Senate Intel Committee on Tuesday offer new grist for the Russia investigation mill? On this week’s first episode of The E.R., Sharon Weinberger, Jenna McLaughlin, Michael Weiss, and Amie Ferris-Rotman predict what will come of the ongoing investigation into Russian collusion, and what we can expect in the days and months ahead. Even though a true “crime” has not yet been uncovered, the panel agrees, there is plenty of smoke that is potentially telling — and the more Trump and his allies try to cover it up, the more it looks like they have something to hide.

Joining from Moscow, Ferris-Rotman offers insight into how the Russians are reacting to these hearings and investigations. Why was Comey’s hearing basically ignored and not covered on state-sponsored news outlets? And what really is Putin’s endgame with all of this?
