President Trump on Roger Stone

Description:

President Trump on Roger Stone: "Roger has a very good chance of exoneration in my opinion."


During a meeting with the President of Ecuador, President Trump discussed Roger Stone's sentencing, trade deals, and the New Hampshire primaries. 
With 225,000 jobs added in January and wages rising fastest among low-income workers, the economy is booming under President Trump. One America's Jenn Pellegrino has more on the administration's 'opportunity zones,' which have largely contributed to the U.S. economy.
President Donald Trump said his former adviser Roger Stone has 'very good chance of exoneration' hours after the GOP operative was sentenced to 40 months behind bars for lying to Congress. Aired on 02/20/20.
President Trump is insisting he didn't tell Attorney General William Barr to intervene in the Roger Stone case, even though he says he has the "legal right" to do so. This comes as Barr said Trump should not tweet about Justice Department matters. CBS News White House correspondent Paula Reid and Politico's Anita Kumar join CBSN with more.
