WAMC's Dr. Alan Chartock discusses former President Donald Trump invoking the Fifth Amendment and refusing to answer questions under oath Wednesday in the New York attorney general's long-running civil investigation into his business dealings amid an unrelated federal investigation.

Dr. Chartock also weighs in on the latest inflation rate and decreasing gas prices amid fears of a recession, recent legislation signed by President Joe Biden that expands benefits for veterans exposed to toxic burn pits and more.

Dr. Alan Chartock is professor emeritus at the University at Albany. He hosts the weekly Capitol Connection series, heard on public radio stations around New York. The program, for almost 12 years, highlighted interviews with Governor Mario Cuomo and now continues with conversations with state political leaders. Dr. Chartock also appears each week on The Media Project and The Roundtable and offers commentary on Morning Edition, weekdays at 7:40 a.m.
