State of the "Uniom"

The President delivered his first State of the Union address and promised unity - but it seems a long way off. Zoe Daniel, Conor Duffy and Roscoe Whalan reflect on the speech and the President's promises. Zoe also gives the team a crash course in the "Nunes FISA Memo" and how it fits into the Russia Investigation ahead of its release. Conor takes us behind the scenes of his interview with Anthony "The Mooch" Scaramucci in which the one-time Communications Director called one of the ABC cameramen a pirate.
