Ginger Gibson, deputy Washington digital editor at NBC News, joins us for this and also how emails showed how much pressure Trump put on his Justice Department to help overturn the election.

Olivia Carville, reporter at Bloomberg News, joins us for how Airbnb is spending millions to make bad news go away.
