Additionally, THE CIRCUS dives into the continuing probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, as Mark McKinnon seeks insights from prominent figures on both ends of the political spectrum – former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and the bombastic former Trump advisor Roger Stone.For a preview of this week’s episode, go to
