The White House formally rejected former President Trump’s latest request to assert executive privilege to shield a subset of documents that had been requested by lawmakers on the House committee investigating the January 6 attack. In a letter from White House counsel Dana Remu it said President Biden “maintains his conclusion that an assertion of executive privilege is not in the best interests of the United States, and therefore is not justified as to any of the documents provided to the White House on September 8, 2021." Elie Honig is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York and a CNN legal analyst. He tells Anderson Cooper that Trump has “two options. One, he can do nothing and let it be which means 30 days from now, those documents go over to the committee” or two Trump can “ask a court to block those documents from going over” but “that’s a serious uphill climb, legally.” Plus, 90-year-old William Shatner made history as the oldest person to go to space and said it was the “most profound experience.” Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson joins AC360 to discuss Captain Kirk’s journey to the edge of outer space.
