It’s been a chaotic week in Washington by any standard. Democrats are spurring public outrage over President Donald Trump’s decision to fire FBI director James Comey earlier this week. As Trump has noted, it feels like a 180 for the Democrats who condemned Comey for his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Yet, DNC Chair Tom Perez says there is no contradiction. Soledad O’Brien meets with Perez for a discussion on investigations into Russian interference, who he can trust on the other side of the aisle and “resistance fatigue.”
