Anderson Cooper brings you highlights from CNN's premier nightly news program AC360.

    Colin Powell Dies Of Covid-19 Complications

    Colin Powell Dies Of Covid-19 Complications

    Colin Powell, the first Black U.S. secretary of state, died from complications from Covid-19. His leadership in several Republican administrations helped shape American foreign policy in the last years of the 20th century and the early years of the 21st century. Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body’s immune response, as well as Parkinson’s. Madeleine Albright preceded Powell as Secretary of State. She joins AC360 to remember her friend and says he was one of the “warmest, kindest, smartest, and patriotic" people she had met. Plus, Bob Woodward interviewed Powell last summer for what is believed to be his final interview. He talked about his health saying “don’t feel sorry for me” and said the greatest person he’s ever known was his wife of 58 years, Alma. Woodward tells Anderson Cooper about their conversation and what stuck out the most to him.

He joins AC360 to discuss the indictment and gives an update on what the committee is going to do about the people who have defied their subpoenas. Plus, 90-year-old William Shatner made history as the oldest person to go to space and said it was the “most profound experience.” He tells Anderson about his journey to space and his emotions when he landed back on Earth.

    January 6 committee moves to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt

    January 6 committee moves to hold Steve Bannon in criminal contempt

     

    The committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol said it’s moving forward with holding Trump ally Steven Bannon in criminal contempt for refusing to comply with a subpoena. Bannon’s lawyer wrote in a letter that his client won’t provide testimony or documents until the committee reaches an agreement with former President Trump over executive privilege or a court says otherwise. Republican Rep. Adam Kinzinger is a member of the committee. He tells Anderson Cooper anybody who is "either being subpoenaed now or will be in the future, think twice before you reject a lawful order from Congress." Plus, former FBI Deputy Director and current CNN senior law enforcement analyst Andrew McCabe was once fired by Trump hours before his retirement. He’s settled a lawsuit with the Justice Department that allows him to officially retire, recoup hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and his pension. He tells AC360 "it's an incredible relief."

    White House formally rejects Trump’s request to protect specific documents being given to January 6 investigators

    White House formally rejects Trump’s request to protect specific documents being given to January 6 investigators

    The White House formally rejected former President Trump’s latest request to assert executive privilege to shield a subset of documents that had been requested by lawmakers on the House committee investigating the January 6 attack. In a letter from White House counsel Dana Remu it said President Biden “maintains his conclusion that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents provided to the White House on September 8, 2021." Elie Honig is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and a CNN legal analyst. He tells Anderson Cooper that Trump has “two options. One, he can do nothing and let it be which means 30 days from now, those documents go over to the committee” or two Trump can “ask a court to block those documents from going over” but “that’s a serious uphill climb, legally.” Plus, 90-year-old William Shatner made history as the oldest person to go to space and said it was the “most profound experience.” Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joins AC360 to discuss Captain Kirk’s journey to the edge of outer space.

    Coroner: Gabby Petito’s cause of death was strangulation

    Coroner: Gabby Petito’s cause of death was strangulation

    The Teton County coroner announced Gabby Petito’s cause of death was strangulation and the manner of death was homicide. Petito was reported missing on September 11. She had been traveling on a road trip with her fiancé, Brian Laundrie, who returned to Florida without her and hasn’t been in over a month. Dr. Brent Blue is the Teton County coroner. He tells Anderson Cooper “there is no evidence that this was done by any kind of animal” and “we believe this is strangling by human being.” The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is considering making changes to its guidance on taking a daily aspirin to prevent heart disease and stroke. CNN’s Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta joins AC360 to explain the possible changes and says “they’re not saying you should stop” taking an aspirin if you’ve already been taking one.

    Trump keeps peddling the big lie in run-up to 2024

    Trump keeps peddling the big lie in run-up to 2024

     

    At a campaign-style rally in Iowa, former President Trump continued to peddle the big lie about the 2020 election as he teased a run in 2024. At the event, Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley said it’s “smart” to accept Trump’s endorsement even though after the January 6 insurrection on the Capitol he said “history is going to judge” him. CNN Political Commentator S.E. Cupp tells AC360 it’s “deeply disappointing” and an “embarrassment” to see lawmakers like Sen. Grassley “leaning into this.” Plus, the Teton County, Wyoming coroner is holding a press conference tomorrow regarding Gabby Petito’s final autopsy report. CNN National Correspondent Randi Kaye joins AC360 to give more details on the expected autopsy report.

One of the most trusted journalists in America.

I’ve followed Anderson’s career from ChannelOne News, ABC News and CNN. He has probably been my most down the line reporter I’ve seen over 20+ years of playing close attention to the news and media. He gives people opportunities to come on his show. The man fact checks and calls out the nonsense and hypocrisy. The Keeping Them Honest monologue at the beginning usually lays bare facts that cannot be disputed.

Propogandist Anderson Cooper is a Rockefeller family member.

This is a rich man spewing lies constantly acting like he's not part of one of the most powerful families in the world, that continue to influence politics still over 100 years later, those Rockefeller's. Yeah, you know the family that got rich off of extremely low wages for employees of standard oil co. and was one of the biggest monopolized company's in oil. Standard oil and two other oil companies rigged oil prices by not over or under pricing each other. This is the man your listening to, a rich trust fund baby who was raised by the very same people that got rich off ripping the public and government off. No thank you!
