Listen: Mueller's new boss should recuse, according to himself


Former Department of Justice official, David Laufman, who was overseeing the Russia probe from summer of 2016, until his resignation in February 2018 joins Ari Melber. Laufman tells Ari Melber that Trump’s pick to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions was likely “handpicked for the job” because he “gave a commitment” to Trump that he would not recuse himself. Laufman says that without the proper ethics review, Whitaker could trigger an “ethics civil war” within the Department of Justice.
