Seth Meyers Takes “A Closer Look” at the First Charges in Mueller’s Russia Investigation

Here’s a clip from last night’s Late Night, where Seth Meyers takes “A Closer Look” at yesterday’s news about Robert Mueller’s first charges in the Russia investigation and how Trump reacted to the indictments on Twitter. “He is so bad at this,” Meyers says. “It’s like getting pulled over and saying ‘I wasn’t speeding, officer, and also, THERE IS NO COCAINE IN THE GLOVE COMPARTMENT!'” Meyers also recaps how Fox News chose to cover the news – which mainly has just been dredging up old Hillary Clinton stories to try to turn the Russia collusion news into a Hillary Clinton scandal – and Trump’s desperate tweet for Republicans to “DO SOMETHING” about it. “‘DO SOMETHING’? He sounds like a supervillain barking orders at his henchmen after James Bond escapes,” Meyers says. “‘He’s getting away! Do something!’ But his henchmen are yelling back, ‘We can’t! We’re all under federal investigation!’”
