Report: Trump plotted to replace Acting Attorney General in effort to overturn election results


Andrew Weissmann and Michael J. Moore join Lawrence O’Donnell to discuss the latest reports that Donald Trump and a Justice Department official worked to have then-Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen replaced with a loyalist who would support Donald Trump’s unfounded claims of election fraud. Moore, former U.S. Attorney for the middle district of Georgia, says it’s “pretty clear here that there’s been an effort to solicit somebody to commit voter fraud,” and Weissmann, former FBI General Counsel, says although no additional proof of malfeasance is needed, “at this point it’s clear that more evidence is going to come out.”
