With the president at war with the fourth estate, the battle between real news and fake news continues. Lawyer, journalist, and author Dan Abrams is back with his insight and analysis. Michael Grimm is a former FBI agent, veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a New York Congressman, and felon who was convicted of tax fraud. Now, he wants his seat back in Congress. But without support from President Trump, does he stand a chance of winning? He’s here to explain his strategy. Why are the number of marijuana arrests of minorities considerably higher than those of white New Yorkers? Benjamin Mueller, a New York Times reporter, reveals the details. “Wrong Man,” a new documentary series on STARZ sets out to investigate the convictions of three prison inmates who claim they are innocent.
