In this new monthly series with Mark Fischler, we take a look at some of the most pressing and most complex issues of our time through the lens of Integral Law. In this special premiere episode Mark describes his own background, how he arrived at this fascinating intersection between the integral world and the legal world, and what exactly he means by the phrase “integral law”.

Mark and Corey then turn their attention to the big story of our day — the Mueller report — offering their own views about the investigation, Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Mueller Report, and how this story might play out in the weeks and months to come.

Topics include:

  • What is “Integral Law”?
  • What were the origins of the Mueller investigation?
  • What were the main conclusions of the Mueller report, as summarized by William Barr?
  • What are the different kinds of “burden of proof”, and how do they apply to this investigation?
  • Does the Mueller report (or what we know about it) actually exonerate President Trump?
  • If Mueller’s investigation did not surface evidence “beyond a reasonable doubt” of Trump conspiring with Russia to influence the 2016 election, does that mean the entire investigation by the FBI and the media was a sham? Or was the investigation justified, regardless of the evidence it reveals?
  • If the Mueller report does end up providing evidence of Trump’s complicity, should Democrats move to impeach him?
What do you think? This conversation represents the views of two enthusiastic integralists — but as is the case with all views, reasonable people can disagree.
