Investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election are expanding. Former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and Trump’s longtime personal lawyer Michael Cohen have been subpoenaed by both the Senate and House Intelligence committees. And former FBI director James Comey is expected to testify next week that President Donald Trump asked him to drop the investigation into Flynn’s contacts with Russian agents. Jill Wine-Banks, the only women on the Watergate trial team, is looking forward to Comey’s public hearing, saying what the public needs is transparency and hopes Comey’s testimony will help clear up some of the murkiness. Wine-Banks, well-known for her grilling of President Nixon’s secretary Rose Mary Woods on the 18 ½ minute gap in the tapes, joins Soledad O’Brien to discuss the ongoing investigations, standards of evidence and comparisons between the Russia probe and Watergate.
