'Burning down the place': Trump eyes pardons for allies after losing election


MSNBC's Ari Melber reports on the news Trump is mulling pardons for up to 20 allies, worrying Republicans that the action could be seen as an abuse of power. Potential pardons include everyone from Paul Manafort to Joe Exotic from the hit Netflix series "Tiger King." Meanwhile, Trump's cases alleging "voter fraud" are tanking while the crucial Georgia runoffs loom ahead. MSNBC Legal Analyst Glenn Kirschner tells Melber that accepting a pardon "generally extinguishes your Fifth Amendment right against incrimination."
