Former President Trump indicated that he’ll attempt to assert executive privilege to prevent the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol from getting information from certain witnesses. A source confirmed to CNN that an attorney for the former President sent letters to some of the subpoena targets that informed them of his plan to defend executive privilege. John Dean is a former White House Counsel for President Nixon. He joins AC360 to discuss whether or not Trump could even use executive privilege as an argument. Plus, Brian Laundrie’s father joined police on the search for his son, showing authorities the trails and locations where they hiked and frequented. Laundrie returned to his family home without his fiancé Gabby Petito in early September, refused to cooperate with investigators and has been missing for more than three weeks. Criminal defense attorney Mark O’Mara tells Anderson Cooper what Laundrie’s defense should be if he is found alive and charged with Petito’s murder.
