A federal appeals court granted former President Trump’s request to pause the release of key White House records from his presidency to the House select committee investigating the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. The former President appealed a lower court’s decision that he can’t claim executive privilege to keep them secret. CNN Chief Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin tells Anderson Cooper what exactly this move by the court of appeals means for the House investigation.

The 18-year-old gave a tearful testimony in his own defense as he faces charges that he killed Anthony Huber and Joseph Rosenbaum and wounded Gaige Grosskreutz using an AR-15-style rifle during protests last summer following the police shooting of Jacob Blake. Grosskreutz joins AC360 to discuss Rittenhouse’s testimony and says it seemed “like a child being upset because they were caught, not upset because of what they had done wrong.”
