  • 2954 - Florida Hearing in Trump Classified Documents Case Devolves Into Shouting Match

    A shouting match broke out today between attorneys during pre-trial proceedings in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case. The disagreement was over a long-disputed 2022 meeting between a prosecutor and an attorney for former President Trump’s personal aide Walt Nauta. Plus, Judge Aileen Cannon seemed skeptical of arguments to dismiss charges against Trump and his co-defendants. But, she has yet to rule on the motions she considered on Wednesday. Former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci and former U.S. District Court Judge Shira Scheindlin talk to Anderson about the case. Also, in a 360° exclusive, CNN’s Elizabeth Wagmeister talks to a woman who alleges Harvey Weinstein assaulted her nearly a decade ago. The woman also says she was the target of a "catch-and-kill" effort by the National Enquirer, similar to what's been described in the former president's hush money trial.  Learn more about your ad choices.

  • 2953 - Donald Trump’s Defense Rests Its Case in Hush Money Criminal Trial

    The Trump defense rested today in the criminal hush money trial without calling the former president to the witness stand after he said at one point that he'd testify. The trial is adjourned until next Tuesday when closing arguments are expected. CNN legal commentator Robert Ray, counsel to former President Trump in his first impeachment trial, and former New York Supreme Court judge Diane Kiesel break down what happens next. Plus, a video was posted on the former president’s Truth Social account Monday that included images of a fake newspaper article that contained the words "unified Reich." The video was removed from his account Tuesday morning, and a Trump campaign spokesperson said in a statement that the video was not created by the campaign and was “reposted by a staffer who clearly did not see the word, while the president was in court.” CNN political commentators Van Jones and Alyssa Farah Griffin talk about how something like this happens and why it took so long to take it down.  Learn more about your ad choices.
