David Corn, Washington Bureau Chief for Mother Jones, says that President Trump's affinity for Russian leader Vladimir Putin stems from Trump's two-day trip to Moscow in 2013. That trip, devoted to scouting business opportunities and promoting the Miss Universe contest, "was the birth of a bromance—or something darker" writes Corn in his new book, "Russian Roulette." Corn joins Forum to discuss the book, why he thinks Trump is unable and unwilling to acknowledge Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as the latest news on Robert Mueller's investigation.
