Attorney General William Barr says in an interview that President Trump's tweets make it "impossible" for him to do his job. Congressional reporter for the Los Angeles Times Jennifer Haberkorn and McClatchy White House correspondent Francesca Chambers join CBSN's "Red & Blue" with more.
The Justice Department recently opened an inquiry into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn's interview with the FBI, where he lied to investigators and pleaded guilty for it.
