Meet The Mueller Prosecutor Who Scares Trump More Than Mueller | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC

In a special report, MSNBC Chief Legal Correspondent Ari Melber examines the tactics of a hardball Federal Prosecutor on Special Counsel Mueller’s team, Andrew Weissmann, who many refer to as Mueller’s “legal pit bull”. Melber breaks down how Weissmann honed his hardball strategy in the Enron investigation, one of the most far-reaching, aggressive and controversial prosecutions in modern American law and how he built a reputation of effective and controversial prosecution, by charging targets that many prosecutors avoid: like a defendant’s own family members. » Subscribe to MSNBC: http://on.msnbc.com/SubscribeTomsnbc MSNBC delivers breaking news and in-depth analysis of the headlines, as well as informed perspectives.

Gangsters in Paradise - The Deportees of Tonga

In Gangsters in Paradise - Deportees of Tonga, VICE embeds with four Tongan nationals who have been sent back to the tiny island nation where they were born after serving prison time in New Zealand and the United States. Former gang members, they often struggle to reconnect with the culture, the language, and the people. They are haunted by the stigma of their criminal pasts, which casts a pall over their employment prospects and puts a barrier between them and their compatriots. Government support for returnees is non-existent, wages are low, and with Tonga in the midst of a methamphetamine crisis, the temptations to revert to the lives of crime they hoped to leave behind when they left prison are high.

El Paso, Texas, Mayor Dee Margo says President Donald Trump was incorrect when he claimed in his State of the Union address that crime in El Paso went down after a border wall was constructed.

Trump made the claim last week in his State of the Union Address when he said El Paso "used to have extremely high rates of violent crime -- one of the highest in the country, and considered one of our nation's most dangerous cities."
"Now, with a powerful barrier in place, El Paso is one of our safest cities," Trump said.
CNN noted at the time that the connection was inaccurate, and Margo, a Republican, told CNN's Poppy Harlow and Jim Sciutto on "Newsroom" Monday that the drop in crime came prior to the barrier construction, and that Trump was "wrong" when he claimed otherwise.
El Paso is a Texas border city adjacent to Mexico's Ciudad Juarez. Margo said while Trump was right to call El Paso safe, he was wrong to attribute its drop in crime to the construction of a barrier along the border -- a remark he said Trump had echoed from Texas GOP Attorney General Ken Paxton.
"If people had contacted me about our attorney general's remarks, I would have corrected it at that time," Margo said.
Margo said El Paso was safe "going back to 2005," before the construction of border fencing.
"The barrier went up, and the fence went up, and it's only about ten miles long," Margo said. "And the total fencing in the El Paso sector is about 78 miles. And it's not continuous. Now it's part of the process for border security, but it's not the total panacea."
In a tweet responding to the speech, Margo said the fencing had "impacted illegal immigration and curbed criminal activity" but was not the "sole deterrent."
