President Trump appears to be helping investigators build a case against him every day. (He’s like a smart person.) Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. "President Donald Trump pressured a “reluctant” Michael Flynn into accepting a job as the White House’s top national security official even after Flynn warned the president that he was under investigation over undisclosed lobbying on behalf of a foreign government, The Daily Beast has learned.

He wanted to go back to private life.” “But Trump insisted on it,” said historian Ledeen, co-author of Flynn’s 2016 book The Field of Fight, their manifesto for defeating Islamic militancy. “He likes him, he trusted him, he was comfortable with him,” he said.”* Read more here: Hosts: Cenk Uygur Cast: Cenk Uygur *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.
