Jeffrey Wright: More sympathy for violent criminals than Manafort

05:44

Emmy and Tony award-winning actor Jeffrey Wright joins Ari Melber to discuss his new film on HBO, “O.G.” which explores the prison system and was shot inside a real maximum security prison in Indiana. As Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, faces three years in prison, Wright tells Melber after the process of shooting “O.G.”, he does not look at Trump allies like Cohen and Paul Manafort “with the type of understanding” he looks at other prisoners because they had the opportunity “to develop positive outcomes” but still chose “an egregiously immoral path”.
