Behind Pelosi's and McConnell's impeachment trial strategies

Clip: 01/07/2020 | 8m 17s Video has closed captioning.

There is still no official word on when a Senate impeachment trial of President Trump might begin. The lack of forward movement is due to an ongoing impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. To make sense of the situation, Lisa Desjardins talks to Nadeam Elshami, former chief of staff to Pelosi, and Steven Law, former chief of staff to McConnell.
