Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s former business partner strikes a plea deal with the feds. Plus, woman across the country win big in elections, while here in New York Barbara Underwood becomes New York’s new Attorney General. We examine both stories. PBS’ “The Great American Read” has kicked off! Tonight historian Jon Meacham is here to discuss our turbulent times and his book, “The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels.” It’s the animal you’ve probably never heard of but is “The World’s Most Wanted Animal.” Nature Executive Producer Fred Kaufman is here with the heartbreaking details and a preview of this must see episode.
