Reporter Chris Megerian: Reopening of FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton

FBI Director James Comey continues to suffer backlash over Hillary Clinton's e-mail investigation…most of that heat is coming from the Clinton campaign.

When news broke that the FBI was reviewing what it found, Hillary Clinton was on a plane heading to Iowa for a rally.

An L.A. Times reporter was on that flight.

He asked for a comment from a Clinton spokesman who was sitting near him.

The spokesman had no idea what the reporter was talking about…and that's how the Clinton camp learned about the new e-mails.

Chris Megerian was that reporter for the LA Times. He joined us from Sacramento on Tuesday morning to discuss.
