PolitiFact California reporter Chris Nichols joins us again this week, investigating statements on our criminal justice system and vice presidential candidates.

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer argues we’ve spent $5 billion putting 13 people to death since 1978.

California Attorney General and Senate Candidate Kamala Harris claims our prison population has grown 500 percent in 40 years.

Nichols puts these statements to the test and puts claims by our vice presidential candidates under the microscope.
