Interviews with: Gov. Chris Sununu, Sen. Mark Kelly, New York Times’ Maggie Haberman
Former President Donald Trump wrote in a social media post that he expects to be arrested on charges of hush money payments involving adult film actress Stormy Daniels and called on his supporters to protest any such move. But how likely are charges? New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu tells Jake Tapper the investigation is building “sympathy” for the former president and that “we don’t want history to repeat itself” with Trump’s call for protests, after the violent protests of January 6, 2021. Later, Senator Mark Kelly tells Jake that “nobody is above the law” and that it’s important for the Manhattan District Attorney to thoroughly investigate Trump’s alleged role in the hush money scheme. He also reacts to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis saying that the war in Ukraine is not a “vital" national interest for the United States. Then, New York Times Senior Political Correspondent Maggie Haberman tells Jake that Trump is “very anxious about the prospect of being indicted.” Then, the panel discusses whether Trump should drop out of the 2024 presidential race if he is indicted this week and whether the investigation actually helps his campaign prospects. And, Jake reflects on the 20-year mark of the Iraq War.To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit cnn.com/privacy
