We still know nothing about what Mueller has on Trump

With special counsel Robert Mueller's report on President Trump looming, it's important to understand America's history with special prosecutors and the nature of their work. University of Arizona professor of law and author Andrew Coan is dissecting that history and giving context to Mueller's investigation with his book "Prosecuting the President: How Special Prosecutors Hold Presidents Accountable and Protect the Rule of Law."

Coan appeared on "Salon Talks" to share his thoughts on how William Barr's potential confirmation could shape the way the report rolls out to the public, the significance of Watergate, and the legality of charging a sitting president with a crime.
