[The Stunningly Complex Mueller Investigation Visualized](https://www.fastcompany.com/90317184/the-stunningly-complex-mueller-investigation-visualized)
A couple excerpts from the above article that explains the interactive graphic database…
*Special counsel Robert Mueller is leading a vast investigation to discern whether Russia interfered with the 2016 election, and whether Trump’s campaign may have colluded with Kremlin officials. Nearly two years into that investigation, Mueller’s work has led to “199 criminal charges, 37 indictments or guilty pleas, and five prison sentences,” as [summarized by Axios.](https://www.axios.com/mueller-russia-investigation-timeline-indictments-70433acd-9ef7-424d-aa01-b962ae5c9647.html) And I’ll be the first to admit that, despite following the news drip daily, I’ve almost completely lost my bearings on what’s going on.*
*Now, data design firm [Fathom](fathom.info) has released an interactive graphic to help make some sense of the most important investigation of our era. Dubbed [Porfiry](https://fathom.info/porfiry/) it uses algorithms to analyze news pieces and court documents to generate an incredible, interconnected timeline of the investigation, allowing you to scroll over any person involved–like Donald Trump–and see when other names, like Paul Manafort, appeared in the same news cycle.*
Note: the sheer amount of information available makes it impossible to view on mobile so you will need to view it via a “larger screen”. It’s extremely detailed and impressive. I found the article [posted over on the politics sub](https://www.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/aztced/the_stunningly_complex_mueller_investigation/?st=JT4KIPRV&sh=fb3ca932) Thanks to u/Pomp_N_circumstance for sharing… thought this sub would enjoy the data as much as I do. I’ve spent the last hour awestruck by massive amount of info presented.
