Former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham made an appearance on CNN’s “New Day” promoting her new book “I’ll Take Your Questions Now.”

During the interview, John Berman is one of many to ask Grisham why she waited so long to speak up about the Trump administration. 

“If I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t do it. I wouldn’t have been there, but obviously, hindsight is 20/20. Obviously, I want to sell books, but I want to sell books so that people can read the entire story and see the context,” Grisham said. 

“Again, I was a loyalist and I was a believer and I defended them fiercely. If I can convince five or six other people who were like me that this is not natural and this is not normal and this is a cult-like environment and if you can just step out and clear your head, maybe I can change things.”

Furthermore, Berman asked whether Grisham regretted serving under former President Donald Trump or was only interested in benefiting from her previous roles work on Trump’s 2016 campaign before heading to the White House with him, working in the East and West Wings.

“I made a lot of mistakes in there. I also think that we mitigated a lot of disasters, some of us who did stay,” Grisham said. 

Former first lady Melania Trump had her office issued a statement regarding Grisham’s book. 

“The intent behind this book is obvious. It is an attempt to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior in the White House. Through mistruth and betrayal, she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump,” the statement said

Dan Abrams: Someone in Donald Trump’s Inner Circle Could See Charges

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

The hearings into the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol remain ongoing, and following the raid on former Trump Department of Justice official Jeffrey Clark this week, anchor Dan Abrams has a bold belief. 

Abrams, the founder of Mediaite and anchor on NewsNation, considers that for the first time, someone from former President Donald Trump’s inner circle could see criminal charges.

“For the first time, I think there’s a real possibility a member of Donald Trump’s inner circle could face criminal charges related to Jan. 6,” Abrams said on Thursday’s edition of “Dan Abrams Live.”

“It’s generally seemed to me that the criminal inquiry into Trump and his inner circle in connection with Jan. 6 wasn’t going anywhere. I’m talking about what I actually think is happening, that’s all.”

Abrams stated the latest hearing and the Wednesday raid on Clark are what altered his view on whether anyone could end up seeing charges.

“What we learned today changed my analysis. That’s because federal investigators just raided the home of former trump department of justice lawyer Jeffrey Clark,” Abrams added. 

“He was the guy heading the justice department’s environmental division who Donald Trump tried to put in as acting attorney general could see was apparently the only one within the DOJ willing to support the effort to overturn the 2020 election.”

Finally, Abrams conveyed that the raid’s timing before the hearing could examine Clark’s role could lead to something significant when facing jail time.  

“To get authorization to raid his home now, the day before the Jan. 6 committee held a hearing examining Jeffrey Clark’s role in trying to overturn the election, suggest to me that they believe they suddenly could have something big,” Abrams concluded.

In a decision many already knew was coming following the leaked draft, the Supreme Court, in a 6-3 ruling, overturned Roe v. Wade, which is the landmark enactment that established the constitutional right to abortion.

Since 1973, women have been permitted abortions during the first two trimesters of pregnancy in the United States; however, now the decision on this matter will return to the states, with a good portion expected to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.

There was no shortage of news media reaction when the official ruling came down, some celebrating it while others shared concern for what’s to come a post-Roe v. Wade United States.
