Figliuzzi: Trump Needs To Learn The DOJ Works For America, Not Him

Description:

Frank Figliuzzi, MSNBC National Security Analyst, reacts to the reports of Trump's influence inside the Justice Department. Aired on 02/14/20.


President Donald Trump said it isn't the right time for the U.S. to pull out of Iraq after the country's parliament called for foreign troops to depart and confusion erupted over a draft U.S. letter suggesting preparations for a withdrawal.
Former WH Press Sec. Ari Fleischer said on 'America's Newsroom' that he believes President Trump's focus on a wholly economic message at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland was the right move 'as impeachment drags on' in the Senate.
