Once inside, most witnesses are seated in a windowless conference room where two- and three-person teams of FBI agents and prosecutors rotate in and out, pressing them for answers.

Among the topics that have been of keen interest to investigators: how foreign government officials and their emissaries contacted Trump officials, as well as the actions and interplay of Flynn and Jared Kushner, the presidentís son-in-law.

Muellerís group has also inquired whether Flynn recommended specific foreign meetings to senior aides, including Kushner. Investigators were particularly interested in how certain foreign officials got on Kushnerís calendar and the discussions that Flynn and Kushner had about those encounters, according to people familiar with the questions.

Often listening in is the special counsel himself, a sphinx-like presence who sits quietly along the wall for portions of key interviews.

Interesting peek into the very secretive Mueller team and how they work. The inside view was provided by "witnesses, lawyers and others briefed on the interviews." These people aren't convinced that the investigation is going to wind down anytime soon, much as Ty Cobb hopes it will.

2. Locking - the hosts feel this is analysis, rather than a breaking news story
