As Trump’s nominees get grilled on Capitol Hill, President Obama speaks to the press once last time, and lays out scenarios in which he might get back involved in politics.
Coming up…Trump’s pick for Secretary of State, if confirmed, will be overseeing a department that the oil conglomerate he used to run has relied on to advance its business interests. Oil and water might be kept separate, but oil and diplomacy are certainly not. The Intercept’s Lee Fang joins us to discuss the issue.
Also, we talk with Abe Marquez, one of the organizers behind a massive rally set to take place in Washington, DC on Inauguration Day to protest the incoming administration. All the details of that coming up for those who want to actually resist instead of just adding the word “resist” to the Twitter pics...We see you, Neera.
