Trump Aides Sought Putin's Help To Build Trump Tower In Moscow

The Washington Post and The New York Times are reporting about a deal that two of President Trump’s associates were trying to put together, months after Trump announced he was running for president, to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

When the deal stalled, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen emailed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s spokesman to get Putin’s team on board.

Journalist and Trump biographer Timothy O’Brien (@TimOBrien) and Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig (@CarolLeonnig) join Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson to discuss the latest news, and where the Russia investigation stands now.
