    We could learn a good bit this week about what kind of hand special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is holding in the Russia investigation. His team is set to file something on Michael Flynn’s sentencing by midnight Tuesday and something on Paul Manafort’s alleged lies on Friday. Either document — depending on what is disclosed — could provide a rare window into what each key figure has talked about, allegedly lied about (including what evidence Mueller has that contradicts them) and maybe even sought to cover up.

    There were credulity-straining defenses by the White House in the face of charges against Manafort and Papadopoulos. But they're not going to work now that former White House national security adviser Michael Flynn has pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

    It’s midterm election eve, and we’re in a somewhat similar situation to where we were in 2016. According to projections, Democrats are a strong favorite to win the night’s big prize: this time, the House. As 2016 showed us, though, taking strong odds and reading them as guarantees can make you look awfully dumb.So as we all prepare to watch the returns Tuesday, here are a few conceivable ways it could go.

    There have been a few moments in the Russia investigation that, in retrospect, seemed to indicate a notable shift or an expansion. The day President Trump fired FBI Director James B. Comey. The Lester Holt interview. When we first found out about the meeting with the Russian lawyer. The early-morning raid of Paul Manafort's Virginia residence. Michael Flynn's guilty plea.

    The defining moment of Jeff Sessions's time as attorney general has been when he recused himself from oversight of the Russia investigation. That quickly led to the appointment of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is now extensively probing President Trump. And by all accounts, it seriously strained Sessions's relationship with Trump, who thinks Sessions should be protecting him and doing his bidding.
