We catch up on the latest developments in the historic trial over Donald Trump's 2016 election interference-hush money scheme. DR. ALLISON GILL of the notorious 'Mueller, She Wrote' and 'Daily Beans Podcast' and attorney KEITH BARBER of Daily Kos delve into the legal and political implications of the trial so far. Democrats outperformed the polls in another special election for the US House. A GOP-majority appeals court ruled that PA voters' ballots can be rejected for minor, immaterial errors.
