Guest: Will Fitzgibbon, Reporter for the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists Some 11 million documents leaked from a Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca reveal off-shore holdings of 12 current and former world leaders and more than 100 other politicians and public officials globally.
