Donald Trump Jr. said during a television appearance last night that he could have handled a meeting with a Kremlin-linked Russian lawyer last year "better." Meanwhile, Trump’s pick to lead the FBI took questions from Senators on the independence of the FBI and on Russia ties to the Trump Campaign.

NPR's Ron Elving (@NPRrelving) joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to help us make sense of everything that’s going on in Washington.
