During the second half of the show, Leslie is joined by Olivier Knox, new Anchor of 'The Daily 202' at The Washington Post, a midday newsletter about politics and policy.
They discuss President Trump's approval rating falling to an all time low, a new court filing by federal prosecutors stating that Capitol rioters intended to 'capture and assassinate' government officials, and how some members of Congress are being investigated by the Capitol Police to see if they gave pre-riot building tours to those who then participated in the riots.
