    The Eve of Trump on Trial

    The Eve of Trump on Trial

    Lawrence O’Donnell talks to his expert guests about the rules Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wants to use to govern the impeachment trial of President Donald Trump. Senator Richard Blumenthal tells Lawrence that it is a race against the clock for the Republicans because new evidence comes out against Trump daily. David Frum looks at the new rules and says he sees McConnell as vulnerable since his rules are visibly unfair.  Lawrence also discusses impeachment with Glenn Kirschner, Paul Butler and Norm Ornstein. And at the end of the show, "Pod Save America's" Jon Favreau joins to talk about his focus groups with Obama-Trump voters and other swing voters who could decide the next election. Favreau, who used to write speeches for Presidential candidate Barack Obama, tells Lawrence what Democrats need to be saying to defeat Trump in 2020.
