Eric And Donald Trump Junior: The Sons Also Rise

Donald Trump Jr. — the eldest of President Trump's five children — is center stage today over a meeting he held more than a year ago with a Kremlin-connected attorney apparently offering damaging information on Hillary Clinton. As the story develops, we take a closer look at President Trump's sons, Don Jr. and Eric. They're ardent supporters of their father who've agreed to lead the family business while he's in the White House. Unlike their sister, Ivanka, they don't have official White House roles, but that doesn't mean their paths don't intersect with the administration's. Joining us to discuss it are Mary Jordan, a Washington Post reporter who worked on the book, "Trump Revealed"; William Cohan, special correspondent for Vanity Fair; Adam Liptak, legal correspondent for The New York Times; and David Greenberg, a history professor at Rutgers and author of "Republic of Spin" and "Nixon's Shadow."
