CNN learns Trump’s legal team has attempted to block a federal grand jury from gathering information from the former president’s top aides about his attempts to overturn the 2020 election. That, as the January 6 Committee prepares to hold what may be its final public hearing next week before the panel releases its report. The panel discusses if it’s likely Trump’s team will prevail with his executive privilege claims in the Mar-a Lago investigation, how financial pressures might be weighing on Trump’s decision to run in 2024, and what the January 6 Committee’s endgame could be.

Art Spiegelman is the author of Pulitzer Prize winning “Maus”, a graphic novel retelling Spiegelman’s father’s experiences as a Polish Jew who survived the Holocaust. He joins to discuss the banning of his book by a Tennessee school district and the “Orwellian” censorship battle that’s rapidly rising across the US. Plus, new laws restricting teaching about race, history & gender identity come into effect in more than a dozen states, and Florida Governor Desantis rewrites the history of the anti-slavery movement in a rant against the New York Times’ 1619 project.

Hosted by Sara Sidner.
