Trump wages secret court battle to block January 6 info

View descriptionShare

Sources exclusively tell CNN that former President Trump’s attorneys are fighting a secret court battle to block a federal grand jury from gathering information about his efforts to overturn the 2020 presidential election. Former White House adviser and lawyer Eric Herschmann was subpoenaed by the grand jury but his testimony was postponed after Trump’s lawyers asked a judge to recognize the former President’s privilege claims and the right to confidentiality. CNN Senior Legal Analyst and former federal prosecutor Elie Honig tells Anderson Cooper why he thinks the Trump team would want to block Herschmann’s testimony.

Plus, CNN Meteorologist Jennifer Gray joins AC360 to give the latest update on Tropical Depression 9, a storm that’s forecasted to be a category 3 hurricane and is heading straight toward Florida.
