    Biden: Would Consider Personally Sanctioning Putin If Russia Invades Ukraine

    Biden: Would Consider Personally Sanctioning Putin If Russia Invades Ukraine

    President Biden told CNN he would consider personally sanctioning Russian President Putin if Russia invaded Ukraine, warning there would be “enormous consequences.” Steve Hall is the former CIA chief of Russia operations. He joins AC360 to discuss how difficult it is to predict Putin’s next move.

    Plus, a judge approved Michael Avenatti’s request to represent himself in the criminal trial against him. Prosecutors allege he defrauded Stormy Daniels by instructing her literary agent to send two of the four installments of the book advance that he helped negotiate to an account controlled by him. CNN Correspondent Kara Scannell tells Anderson Cooper whether or not Avenatti is expected to testify in his own defense and if he’ll cross-examine his former client.

    U.S. Puts Up To 8,500 Troops On Alert For Possible Deployment To Eastern Europe

    U.S. Puts Up To 8,500 Troops On Alert For Possible Deployment To Eastern Europe

    The U.S. put as many as 8,500 troops on heightened alert for possible deployment to Eastern Europe as Russian troops remain at the Ukrainian border and tensions continue to rise. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the goal of sending military reinforcements would be to provide deterrence and to reassure allies. Gen. Wesley Clark joins AC360 to discuss what message the U.S. is sending to Vladimir Putin and Russia.

    Plus, an Atlanta-area district attorney will be allowed to seat a special grand jury to investigate former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election results in Georgia. The grand jury will allow Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis to issue subpoenas to compel witnesses to testify and gather evidence—a step toward possible criminal charges. CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin says “this is a big problem for the former President” because it all starts with that “highly incriminating tape” where Trump appears to be trying to coerce the Georgia Secretary of State to commit an election fraud.

    Georgia DA Requests Special Grand Jury to Probe Trump’s Election Interference

    A district attorney in Georgia who is investigating former President Trump’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election has requested a special grand jury to gather evidence and compel witnesses to testify. Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis wrote that her office has “received information indicating a reasonable probability that the State of Georgia's administration of elections in 2020, including the State's election of President of the United States, was subject to possible criminal disruptions.” Former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Toobin joins AC360 to discuss what this could mean for the former President. 

    Plus, the committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol has asked former President Trump’s daughter and then-senior White House adviser Ivanka Trump for her “voluntary cooperation.” CNN’s Chief Domestic Correspondent Jim Acosta covered the Trump White House. He tells Anderson Cooper what he thinks the committee could learn by talking to the former President’s daughter.

    President Biden Defends First Year Record in News Conference Marking His First Year in Office

    President Biden Defends First Year Record in News Conference Marking His First Year in Office

    President Biden held a news conference to mark his first year in office and touted his administration’s vaccination efforts but admitted it’s been “a year of challenges.” The President acknowledged that the current voting rights legislation likely won’t pass but said “we’ve not run out of options yet and we’ll see how this moves.” Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar tells Anderson Cooper the bill is “needed right now with all of the suppression laws that are being passed across the country that will greatly hurt voters and make it hard for them to vote.” 

    Plus, the Supreme Court cleared the way for the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol to get Trump White House records that could shed light on the attempt to overturn the election. CNN’s Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin joins AC360 to discuss the court’s decision and says “it’s an extraordinary rebuke of the former President.”

    Sources tell CNN the House committee investigating the January 6 attack on the Capitol have subpoenaed and obtained phone records associated with Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr.’s fiancé Kimberly Guilfoyle. Both Eric Trump and Guilfoyle spoke at the rally that preceded the riot. Former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe joins AC360 to discuss what the committee could learn from the phone records. 

    Plus, Ukraine has warned that Russia has “almost completed” its build-up of forces near the border, escalating fears that Moscow could launch an invasion at any time. Democratic Sen. Chris Murphy just got back from Kyiv where he and a bipartisan delegation met with Ukraine’s president. He tells Anderson Cooper it’s “incredibly important” that we make Russia understand that while there aren’t U.S brigades on the ground fighting Russian soldiers, “there is continued U.S. assistance.”

Power as well as prestige,wealth become a politican. follow the money!

Anderson Cooper, people run for public office for the benefit of being able to help people as well as the causes the majority of the people desire. Instead they want a job they can stay in for centuries, get rich and forget why they were elected. Qualifications for a government job are as follows be a good liar, predigest, say something say you didn’t say what everyone heard you say be pompous enough to be willing to forget Democracy,after all you have the power and you belong to a cult, we have now become a third world country. I as well as many Americans are becoming ashamed of our leaders and government federal and state.Why are all politicians getting rich off of the tax payers?Excluding the few that are rich enough to buy their government jobs. I am a Democrat and can not ratify in my mind why two so called Democrats dictate to the masses. Suggestion term limits and not able to run for office again, if this were true our country might move forward, why get something done when you have the rest of eternity to think about it.Life is obtuse and values are lost over time, age is a curse not an attribute,as we age our mind regresses. Tell me your thoughts on the matters I've brought to your attention. Thank you Mark Bramlett.
