William Craddick - Political Analyst | Trump, Prince Andrew, and Bill Clinton Named in Ghislaine Maxwell Trial
In the first hour, Ted Rall joined the show to talk about CNN indefinitely suspending Chris Cuomo in light of new information that the primetime anchor was more involved in the defense of his brother from sexual assault allegations than he previously let on.
In the second hour, Fault Lines was joined by Peter Coffin for a discussion on Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey's departure from the company and what's going to change. We were also joined by Mark Frost for an analysis on what would happen if Congress chose to not raise the debt ceiling, and why they almost certainly will.
In the third hour, William Craddick joined the conversation to talk about the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, where witness testimony supports the prosecution's claim that Maxwell recruited and groomed underage girls for disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein.
