Trump 'soft on crime' when ex-aides are involved

08:36

President Trump, Senator Lindsey Graham and leading conservatives have a new concern about the Mueller probe, now complaining that Federal agents were “too tough in their raid and arrest of Roger Stone”. Ari Melber examines how the available facts show Stone is not facing any discrimination. All of Trump’s former aides were able to post bail and avoid jail, while 370,000 people are jailed before trial because they can’t afford bail. Melber also shows how there is a stark racial disparity, with black defendants being detained at a rate nearly five times higher than white defendants.
