  • 1513 - Supreme Court allows release of Trump tax returns to New York prosecutor

    The Supreme Court ruled that former Pres. Trump’s tax returns can be released to a New York prosecutor. The decision deals a massive lost to Trump, who has fought tirelessly to shield his financial papers from investigators. The former President reacted to the decision by saying “the Supreme Court never should have let this 'fishing expedition' happen, but they did.” Susanne Craig is an investigative reporter for the New York Times and has been focused on Trump’s finances and taxes since 2016. She joins AC360 to discuss what this could mean for the former President and says she thinks prosecutors will be able to piece together what they’re looking for. Plus, the U.S. has surpassed 500,000 coronavirus deaths. President Biden honored the lives lost during a moment of silence and candlelight vigil. He told Americans “we will get through this, I promise you.” Dr. Sanjay Gupta tells AC360 many of these deaths could have been preventable and we should learn the lessons now so it doesn’t happen again.   Airdate: February 22, 2021   Guests: Susanne Craig Dr. Sanjay Gupta To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy

  • 1512 - More than 14.9 million Texans impacted by water distribution

    Approximately 165,000 Texans remain without power and more than 14.9 million have been impacted by a water crisis as the state braces for another deep freeze. While Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has been dealing with the fallout over his quick trip to Cancun, Mexico, two of his Democratic opponents, Beto O’Rourke and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have been raising money and offering resources to Texans who are struggling after the winter storm. Amanda Carpenter is the former Communications Director for Cruz. She tells Anderson Cooper she thinks the Senator has “lost sight of what it means to represent Texans.” Plus, President Joe Biden toured a Pfizer vaccine manufacturing facility in Michigan and said “I believe we’ll be approaching normalcy by the end of this year” but warns “things can change.” The White House announced that bad weather has created a backlog of about six million Covid-19 vaccine doses. Gov. Gretchen Whitmer hosted the President while he was in Michigan and tells AC360 she thinks the vaccine roll out will catch up and make up for lost time.   Airdate: February 19, 2021   Guests: Amanda Carpenter Gov.

  • 1511 - Cruz responds to criticism over Cancun trip

    Republican Texas Senator Ted Cruz returned from Cancun, Mexico with hundreds of thousands of Texans still without power and dealing with severe water issues. Cruz took a flight back to Houston after claiming he flew to the Mexican resort city for a night because his daughters “asked to take a trip with friends” but later said “it was obviously a mistake, and in hindsight I wouldn't have done it.” He also admitted his family had planned on staying through the weekend, not just the night, like he had originally claimed. Texas Democratic Congressman Joaquin Castro represents San Antonio and the surrounding neighborhoods where many were without power for days. He joins AC360 to react to Cruz’s trip and says he thinks he “threw in the towel on Texas.” Plus, researchers found that just one dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech’s Covid-19 vaccine provides more than 90% protection against the virus. The Pfizer vaccine is meant to be given as two doses, three or four weeks apart. Dr. Sanjay Gupta explains to Anderson Cooper why people should still get the recommended second dose.     Airdate: February 18, 2021   Guests: Rep.
