Clip: 10/18/2019 | 6m 21s

Boeing is facing new questions about its dealings with federal safety regulators over the grounded 737 Max jet. At issue are 2016 messages from a Boeing pilot who says he lied to officials about a flight-control system now linked to two deadly crashes. The FAA wants to learn what else Boeing knew about the flaw -- and when. Amna Nawaz talks to David Shepardson of Reuters, who broke the story.
