Jackson, Mississippi left without clean drinking water
CNN Tonight
Aug 31, 2022

150,000 residents are without clean drinking water in Jackson, Mississippi, after its main water treatment plant failed. Jackson City Council member Aaron Banks and Jackson social worker Cassandra Welchlin join to discuss the culmination of decades of government failure to fix a system that dates back to the 1950s, and the daily struggle of the water crisis they are helping their community face.

As a judge signals her “preliminary” intention to grant Trump’s request for an independent special master to oversee the FBI’s review of the classified documents seized from Mar-a-Lago, the panel discusses the implications for the progress of the investigation and why it could set a dangerous precedent. Plus, CNN host Michael Smerconish joins to discuss the midterm battle for Pennsylvania between Dr. Mehmet Oz and John Fetterman, and both campaign’s focus on Fetterman’s health after suffering a stroke three-months ago.
