Former federal prosecutor Barbara McQuade advised Democrats that a simple, understandable message about Trump’s wrongdoing may be more important for impeachment than a mountain of strong evidence.
Former U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade says it's the worst possible scenario for someone in her position, like Rudy Giuliani is, to be investigated by your own former office.
Rudy Giuliani is in legal hot water, but the humiliation of being investigated by the same federal prosecutor’s office he once ran is even worse, according to Joy Reid's guest, Barb McQuade.
