The News with Rick Sanchez - January 20, 2020 (19:00 ET)

Who really killed MLK?

Famous civil rights leader and orator Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is honored with a federal holiday each year on January 20. But the same US government that regards him as a hero may have had him killed. RT America's Michele Greenstein (in for Rick Sanchez) explains. Prof. Mohammed Marandi of the University of Tehran weighs in on escalating tension between US and Iran. Investigative journalist Gareth Porter discusses Tehran's stated willingness to reconsider its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency. Medical safety advocate Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai and Investigative journalist Ben Swann discuss a disturbing new study about the possible harm caused by the CDC's vaccination schedule.
