06:55 GMT 29.01.2022 (Updated: 08:55 GMT 29.01.2022)
Tensions continue to escalate in Ukraine after Biden calls Zelensky and the horse race for the next Supreme Court Justice.
At the top of the show: Mindia Gavasheli, Bureau Chief, Washington DC for Sputnik Radio stops by to discuss the crisis in Ukraine and the fallout from Biden’s call to Ukraine’s Zelensky. It seems CNN and the Ukrainian governments spectacularly failed to get their story straight. CNN’s reporting on what some Ukrainian sources said about Biden’s call has earned a rebuke from the White House - and caused some high-placed reporters to back away while a couple of others are standing by their source.
