DOJ pressures former Trump cabinet members
Don Lemon Tonight
Jul 29, 2022

DOJ prosecutors prepare for a legal battle to force former White House cabinet members to testify about Trump’s January 6 conversations. That, as the Washington Post reports text messages from two of Trump's top former Homeland Security officials are missing for a key period leading up to the January 6 attack on the Capitol. Don and the panel discuss if this an intentional act of subterfuge or just the height of incompetence at an agency level.

Plus, comedian turned activist Jon Stewart rails against the Senate GOP for blocking a bill to help veterans suffering from toxic exposure to burn pits, Trump says “Nobody’s gotten to the bottom of 9/11” as a Saudi-backed golf tournament kicks off at his New Jersey course, and Congress passes a bill to make tens of billions of dollars available to manufacturers and researchers with the goal of reducing the computer chip shortage.
