Your Call: Robert Mercer & the dark money behind Donald Trump
We’ll revisit our conversation with investigative journalist Jane Mayer. We'll speak to Mayer about her piece in the New Yorker on Robert Mercer, the hedge-fund tycoon who made major investments to ensure Donald Trump’s victory.
In 2016, Mercer gave more that $22 million to the Republican party and invested tens of millions of dollars in right-wing organizations including Breitbart and the Media Research Center. What do we need to know about the big money influencing Donald Trump?
