'The Most Significant Campaign Contributions' in U.S. History

It was never clear what motivated Rod J. Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, to hand the investigation of Michael D. Cohen, President Trump's former lawyer, over to career prosecutors in New York rather than to the special counsel. With that investigation now implicating the president in serious campaign finance violations, we look at how fateful the decision may be. Guests: Neal Katyal, a lawyer who drafted the rules that govern special counsel investigations, and Michael S. Schmidt, who has been covering the special counsel investigation for The New York Times.

When China first began experimenting with capitalism in the 1980s, the West was certain the experiment would fail. But two of its assumptions ? that government controls stifle economic growth, and that the internet cannot be tamed ? were quickly proven wrong.Nearly 40 years later, China rivals the United States as a global superpower.
