Sources confirm to various news outlets that President Trump ordered the firing of Robert Mueller, the special counsel overseeing the Russian investigation, but later backed off. This revelation, a major development in the Russia probe, comes to light on the eve of the President’s first State of the Union address to a very divided joint session of Congress. One of its members, New York State Congresswoman, Carolyn Maloney, plans to protest the President and his policies. She’s here with the details. A frightening story emerges from our city’s darkest hour. We have a report about a cancer cluster at a top New York City high school, where at least a dozen former students and staff claim they contracted deadly diseases from toxins after the deadly 9/11 terror attack. As the world gets ready to remember the millions of lives lost as a result of the Holocaust on International Holocaust Remembrance Day, we take you inside a new HBO documentary, “The Number on Great Grandpa’s Arm,” an intimate conversation between an Auschwitz survivor and his great-grandson. Ten-year old Elliot Saiontz is here with the film’s director Amy Schatz, to share his great-grandfather’s story and his goal to ensure that future generations never forget.
