Trump's Intelligence Slip, Comey's Memo, And Impeachment Calls

The White House intelligence sandal is growing more complicated by the day. 

This morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin offered a record of the Oval Office meeting between President Donald Trump and senior Russian diplomats to clear things up. 

Meanwhile, in a 20 minute talk about his upcoming trip to Israel, Trump neglected to bring up new allegations that his intelligence leak to the Russians may have come from an Israeli intelligence agent embedded with ISIS. 

Now, after yesterday’s revelation that Trump asked ousted FBI director James Comey to stop investigating connections between his campaign and Russia, a growing number of politicians on Capitol Hill are calling for impeachment for obstruction of justice. Senator John McCain even compared the scandals to Watergate. Yoni Appelbaum, a senior editor at The Atlantic, joins us to discuss.
