Adam Schiff tells Lawrence O'Donnell that the White House's handling of coronavirus has been "unfortunately plagued with incompetence" in terms of testing and knowing who is infected after an aide to Senator Maria Cantwell tested positive for the virus.

JOINING US TONIGHT IS TOM FIT ON, -, --TOM FITTON. I KNOW YOU ARE WORK HARD ON THIS ISSUE. HOW DOES JUDGE ROBERTS PERMIT THIS TO HAPPEN? >> THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION. THE FISA COURTS WERE OBVIOUSLY LIED TO. ONE OF THE PROBLEMS WE UNCOVERED IS THEY KNEW ABOUT THIS CORRUPTION BUT DID NOTHING ABOUT IT. WE ASKED FOR TRAN SCRIPTS OF THE HEARINGS OF THE FISA COURTS ABOUT THESE WARRANTS THAT WERE AT ISSUE. THEY WERE TARGETED CANDIDATE TRUMP, THEN THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT ASK'S ADMISSION THAT THE FISA COURTS HELD NO HEARINGS ON THIS. WE HAVE AN OBAMA APPOINTEE RUNNING A FISA COURT. EDITION NAITS AS A SPECIAL FRIEND OF THE COURT TO RESPOND TO THE ASK INFORMATION PUT FORWARD BY WRAY. THIS ANTI-TRUMP ACTIVIST. HE'S OUT THERE BLOGGING, ATTACKING THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. LOU: HOW IN THE WORLD CAN THIS HAPPEN? HOW CAN JOHN ROBERTS LET THIS HAPPEN? THERE IS NOTHING INDEPENDENT ABOUT HIM. THERE IS NOTHING THAT IS BALANCED ABOUT HIM. KRIS IS THE GENERAL COUNSEL FOR TIME-WARNER THAT IS THE PARENT COMPANY AND THE SUBSIDIARY LINE OF CNN. THIS IS CRAZY STUFF. AND IT'S IN YOUR FACE CRAZY. >> THE KOARTS -- ONE OF THE BIG LIES IS THE INDEPENDENCE OF THE COURTS IN PRACTICE. THE COURTS AND THE FBI AND THE DOJ WORK HAND IN GLOVE IN AREAS LIKE THIS. IF YOU LEAVE IT TO THE COURT, IF YOU LEAVE IT TO THE FBI AND DOJ, THEY ARE GOING TO WORK TOGETHER. LOU: WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO DO? IMPEACH CHIEF JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT TO SAY THIS HAS GOT TO STOP? THIS IS POLITICAL CORRUPTION. >> THE PRESIDENT IN MY VIEW NEEDS TO HIGHER A SPECIAL COUNSEL TO INVESTIGATE THE SPYGATE CRIMES AND THE CRIMES BEFORE THE COURTS. RELYING ON THE AGENCIES TO DO THE WORK BASED ON PAST EXPERIENCE, THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. HOPING THERE WILL BE JUSTICE. AS TO INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION FROM THE PRESIDENT, THAT'S NOT THE WAY THE SYSTEM WORKS IN THIS CORRUPT D.C. THE PRESIDENT SHOULD TAKE DIRECT ACTION AND APPOINT A SPECIAL COUNSEL PERSONALLY AND DIRECTLY. LOU: THE PRESIDENT SAYS AS HAVE MANY OF HIS SUPPORTERS, THAT MITCH MCCONNELL, THE SENATE MAJORITY LEADER, SHOULD DISMISS UPON RECEIPT THESE FARCICAL ARTICLES OF IMPEACHMENT. WHY GO THROUGH THE PRETENSE OF THIS SOLEMN FORMAL APPROACH THAT IS DESIGNED CLEARLY TO GIVE THIS DISASTROUS PROCESS PELOSI PUT TOGETHER SOME SORT OF CREDIBILITY? IT'S A WASTE OF EVERYONE'S TIME, TAXPAYER MONEY. AND IT'S A FURTHER OFFENSE AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AND THE NATION. >> I HAVE LONG BEEN OF THE VIEW THERE SHOULD BE NO SENATE TRIAL ARISING THE COUP ATTEMPT BY PELOSI AND SCHIFF. NO DUE PROCESS FOR THE PRESIDENT. THE IDEA THEY WOULD BE REWARDED WITH A FURTHER ABUSIVE TRIAL? AND IT WILL BE ABUSIVE EVEN UNDER THE RULES McCONNELL IS TRYING TO PUT OUT THERE. THERE IS NO MAJORITY TO BRING IN WITNESSES PRESIDENT TRUMP WOULD BRING IN. BUT THERE IS A MAJORITY TO BRING IN WITNESSES TO SMEAR PRESIDENT TRUMP. EITHER WAY, WITNESSES OR NO WITNESSES. IT WILL BE TWO WEEKS OF SMEARING PRESIDENT TRUMP. HE WILL WIN IN THE END, BUT BE ABUSED BY THE PROCESS IN THE MEANTIME. THERE SHOULD BE A PRELIMINARY HEARING BY THE SENATE INTO PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT BY SCHIFF. THAT'S THE ONLY PROCESS THAT SHOULD BE PUT IN PLACE. PRESIDENT TRUMP SHOULDN'T BE ON TRIAL, SCHIFF SHOULD BE. LOU: MITCH MCCONNELL IS ON THE PHONE FOR YOU, TOM FITTON.
