A week-long interruption of Last Last Tonight fell during the conclusion of Robert Müller's report on Russia, and as such, comedian John Oliver had to wait until Sunday night to express his opinion on the conclusion of the Müller investigation.
Oliver began his Sunday show with a clip from the hearing to confirm that David Bernhardt, President Trump, acting interior secretary and presidential candidate, took the full time. During Bernhard's hearing, the audience behind him wore "marsh creatures" masks designed to mean the "support" of the former oil and gas lobbyists.
The members of the audience, three Greenpeace activists protesting against Bernhard's nomination, stayed in the C-Span camera for over an hour.
Oliver laughed at the appearance of the swampy creatures and continued to talk about the continuous leakage of news reports on Muller's investigation and the still unreleased report.

While under oath, Michael Cohen, a former Trump lawyer, accusing the president of the model of lying and breaking the law, not only surround the 2016 elections but also freeze the cash payments for Stormy Daniels, the actress for adult movies.
All of this, Oliver says, will be prevalent in one session, but as the news of Muller's findings came out briefly, the public has trouble investigating.
"This scandal was so clear, we stopped noticing it," Oliver said. "It looks very much like a woman with a more and more sweating fish mask. And as with her, the strangest thing in this situation is how somewhat strangely this objectively ridiculous state of affairs begins to feel. "During the second segment of his show, Oliver turned to the next weekly Wrestlemania event and what he calls" moral underground "occupational practices of World Wrestling Entertainment and his CEO , billionaire Vince McMahon.
