The Washington Post reports the DOJ is investigating Trump’s actions in a January 6 criminal probe, subpoenaing top Pence aides Marc Short and Greg Jacob to testify before a Grand Jury, for hours of detailed questioning about meetings the then president led in December 2020 and January 2021. Attorney General Garland has faced criticism for his handling of the January 6 investigation - do these moves make it clear he’s moving closer to prosecuting Trump?

She joins to tell Laura her story.
