These days, with news about the White House and its possible ties to Russia at a fever pitch and probes adding up by the day, all eyes are on the man leading the congressional investigation: Rep.

Vanita Gupta, the former principal deputy assistant attorney general and acting head of the Dept. of Justice Civil Rights Division under President Obama, joined me on Yahoo News to talk about Attorney General Sessions rolling back Obama- era guidance on sentencing, the firing of FBI Director James Comey and President Trump’s newly created Election Integrity Commission.
