Day of Reckoning?

May 17, 2017

The fallout from President Donald Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey has entered new territory with The New York Times’ that Trump asked Comey to close an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. According to the report, the conversation happened during a one-on-one meeting between Trump and Comey, which then Comey detailed in a memo. The White House has denied the claim, but lawmakers in both parties are looking for answers.

 

Is this a time of reckoning for the GOP? Can Donald Trump govern with all this going on around him and his office? Farai Chideya, who covered the presidential race as a senior writer for Five Thirty-Eight and Dan Primack, business editor for Axios joined Jim Braude to discuss.
