On Saturday, CNN reporter Sarah Westwood revealed that President Donald Trump is losing confidence in his attorney Rudy Giuliani, after a series of high-profile embarrassments on cable television and a federal criminal investigation into his efforts to help Trump pressure Ukraine into digging up dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Sources tell CNN that privately Trump is doubting Giuliani’s ability to keep representing him,” said Westwood. “They say that while Giuliani will continue to be his lawyer, he will not work on any issues that touch Ukraine.”
Publicly, Trump continues to express confidence in Giuliani, defending him in a tweet as a “crime buster” and a “wonderful lawyer.” But he also told reporters that he is not sure Giuliani is even still his attorney.
New York AG speaks out: The NRA ‘looted’ charitable funds — and it’s time for them to pay
On Thursday's edition of CNN's "OutFront," New York Attorney General Letitia James laid out the evidence she is bringing against the National Rifle Association in her lawsuit to force the breakup of the pro-gun organization.
"You say you found example after example of wrongdoing, financial mismanagement, total corruption, like Mr. LaPierre getting a $17 million contract with the NRA without board approval that paid him even after he lost — even after he would lose election as executive vice president," said host Erin Burnett. "What else did you find out?"
Investigative reporter David Cay Johnston explains when you’ll see Trump get indicted
Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter David Cay Johnston appeared Thursday on CNN, where he explained when he believed President Donald Trump would be indicted.
After receiving a subpoena from New York prosecutors last year, Deutsche Bank reportedly handed over detailed records about their dealings with Trump, according to the New York Times. The subpoena indicates that the investigation of Trump's family business is more expansive than previously thought.
"Prosecutors already have the basic tax information on Donald Trump. Your state tax return is virtually identical to your federal return, and the IRS shares tax information with the state," Johnston explained to CNN host Brianna Keilar.
Dr. Fauci says his family is being threatened because of a ‘completely crazy’ backlash against science
Dr. Anthony Fauci told CNN's John Berman on Thursday that he and his family are facing death threats because some Americans are having an irrational backlash against scientists during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When asked by Berman about the threats he's received, Fauci turned it into a broader discussion about America's divisive politics.
"You know, there's such divisiveness right now in this country, John, I mean, I can't explain it," he said. "The kinds of things that you see in society, you have a lot of outlier people that do things that are almost inexplicable, where the push back against science is in a way that gets translated into threats to me, my daughters, my wife. I mean that is completely crazy, it really makes you shake your head."
