Clip: 03/20/2019 | 7m 39s

The Southern District of New York has attracted particular ire, with Trump firing the U.S. attorney heading it in 2017. Judy Woodruff talks to that U.S. attorney, Preet Bharara, about his new book, “Doing Justice,” how the justice system was intended to work and whether its credibility is being jeopardized.
