Yesterday's verdict must seem like deja-vu for Amanda Knox. She was first found guilty of murdering Meredith Kercher back in 2009. Back then, she was sentenced to 25 years in prison, this time she was sentenced to more than 28. But the big question now is whether she will have to serve that sentence. Anderson takes a look at the twists and turns in this case.
Anderson discusses whether Knox could really face extradition with The Daily Beast's Rome Bureau Chief Barbie Latza Nadeau, Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and Investigative Correspondent Drew Griffin.
He was once Chris Christie's appointee's to the Port Authority, now David Wildstein could be the Governor's biggest problem as the bridge scandal unfolds. Anderson discussed Wildstein's bombshell letter with the New York Times Reporter who broke today's big Christie news along with The Bergen Record's Shawn Boburg, Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin and Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash.
He was once one of the Republican party's rising stars.There was even talk of Bob McDonnell running for the White House. But today, the former Virginia Governor and his wife are charged with taking gifts from a local businessman in exchange for using the governor's position to help his company. According to the indictment, they accepted:
–A silver Rolex, engraved with "71st Governor of Virginia."
–Two sets of golf clubs.
–Two gold Oscar de la Renta dresses.
–Two Armani dresses and matching jacket.
– Louis Vuitton shoes, wallet and purse.
– Also, a 50-thousand dollar loan and a 15-thousand dollar wedding gift for the McDonnell's daughter.
The big question is whether their actions add up to corruption. Joe Johns has the latest.
