Tonight on The Last Word: George Kent, a senior State Department official, told House impeachment investigators that Trump "wanted nothing less than President Zelenskiy to go to microphone and say investigations, Biden, and Clinton" and that that happened in part because of lies from Rudy Giuliani about Ukraine and the former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch. Also, the New York Times reports that Ukraine’s president almost gave in to Trump’s demands. Plus, Evelyn Farkas and David Jolly return to discuss what can be expected from the public impeachment hearings that will begin next week. And Charlie Cook talks to Lawrence about new polling that shows a strong majority of voters disapprove of Trump in states that narrowly gave Trump his electoral college victory. Rep. Eric Swalwell, Joyce Vance, and Amb. Wendy Sherman also join Lawrence O’Donnell.
