Trita Parsi returns to the show to discuss the Trump administration’s decision to decertify the Iran Deal and what comes next. Parsi outlines how the Trump administration is going to follow the path of the Iraq War by cooking intelligence and making claims of ties between the Iranians and al Qaeda. Ultimately Parsi believes this will come down to whether the American people believe the lies the White House is peddling.
