Weissmann: Citizen Trump Should Be Prosecuted For Obstructing Special Counsel Mueller
Andrew Weissmann, former lead prosecutor for Special Counsel Robert Mueller, talks about why it's important that Donald Trump, as a citizen after he leaves office, face accountability for crimes he may have committed before he was elected as well as potential crimes while in office, like obstructing the special counsel's investigation. Aired on 11/18/2020.
