Here and Now

August 24, 2018: Hour 1

The plea deal President Trump's former lawyer Michael Cohen made on campaign finance violations and the conviction of Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort on fraud charges marked a consequential week in politics. We review with ABC News political director Rick Klein and Univision news anchor Enrique Acevedo. Also, Julie Lythcott-Haims writes in the memoir "Real American" that growing up as the child of an African-American father and a white mother, she struggled with feelings of inadequacy and anger as her parents chose to raise her in predominantly white towns. And we speak with Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple about prosecutors investigating campaign finance violations by Cohen offering immunity to David Pecker, chairman of the company that publishes The National Enquirer. That and more, in hour one of Here & Now's Aug. 24, 2018 full broadcast.
