Rep. Ted Lieu on Syria, Impeachment, and Accountability

Daniella and Ed chat with California Rep. Ted Lieu this week about the impeachment inquiry and President Trump's decision to withdraw troops from Syria.

Part of a Series

This week on “The Tent,” California Rep. Ted Lieu (D) joins the show to discuss the House’s ongoing impeachment inquiry, as well as the latest crisis in Syria, where Donald Trump’s catastrophic decision to withdraw troops was roundly condemned by lawmakers in both parties in Congress and celebrated by Turkey, Russia, and the Islamic State group (ISIS). Plus, Daniella and Ed discuss the latest Democratic debate and the recent emergence of Washington, D.C., as the center of the sports world.
