Fmr. FBI Official: 'This Is A Full-On Attack On Our 2020 Election'

Description:

Frank Figliuzzi tells Lawrence that the New York Times report that Russia hacked Burisma "should surprise no one." He says that Russia is like a burglar doing it in broad daylight with no disguise. Rep. Peter Welch adds that this is a classic Russian attempt to "sow discord." Aired on 1/13/20.


Chris Hayes: "All of the tropes of Trumpism have been fully and totally transmuted into the Republican party." Aired on 12/18/19.
President Donald Trump is officially on Christmas vacation at his Mar-A-Lago resort in Florida as his team is in full preparation mode for the anticipated Senate impeachment trial in 2020. CNN's Sarah Westwood, Marshal Cohen and Elie Honig share the latest developments and analysis with Amara Walker and Victor Blackwell on CNN Newsroom.
On the impeachment vote procedures, Chris Matthews says, "This is not a court room, this is not a fact finding mission. this is not about truth or untruth. This is a simple roll call to what party you're in." Aired on 12/18/19.
In one of the most tense exchanges of the debate, Senator Elizabeth Warren said to South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg that "billionaires in wine caves should not pick the next president." Buttigieg responded that Warren's net worth is "100 times" his and "this is the problem with issuing purity tests you cannot yourself pass." Elaine Quijano anchors coverage with CBS News political analyst and Democratic strategist Antjuan Seawright, CBS News political analyst and Republican strategist Leslie Sanchez and CBSN political contributor Molly Hooper.
