Trump consumed by the unraveling of his presidency as Senate trial looms

One day after being impeached for the second time, Pres. Trump has been lashing out at aides, allies and lawyers trying to protect him from criminal exposure following his role in inciting the violence on Capitol Hill that left five people dead. Sources tell CNN he’s grown more and more worried about what legal and financial woes may be waiting for him once he leaves the protection of the presidency. Anthony Scaramucci worked briefly in the Trump White House as Communications Director. He joins AC360 to react to the President’s mood following being impeached again and says in 50 years historians will look at what happened and say “he didn’t accept the election, he signaled prior to the election that he wasn’t going to, and he incited an insurrection where people descended on the Capitol building calling for the death of his Vice President.” Plus, the National Mall will be closed to the public on Inauguration Day as authorities brace for the possibility of more extremist violence. Former FBI Director James Comey is the author of “Saving Justice: Truth, Transparency, and Trust." He tells Anderson Cooper moving the inauguration indoors would be a “win for a group of terrorists.”   Airdate: January 14, 2021   Guests: James Comey Anthony Scaramucci   To learn more about how CNN protects listener privacy, visit
