(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Fareed Zakaria & David Gergen about the "New York Times" report that Trump trash-talked Comey before the Russians at the White House & that firing "nut job" Comey relieved pressure on the president just before Trump took off for Saudi Arabia & national security director Michael Flynn & the Russians reviewed. [GERGEN - offers views on the pattern of Flynn's relationship with the Russians & how much collusion there was, on what Trump said about Comey: a pattern of firing those not loyal, the issue of impeachment, the selective leaks suggesting a dark picture, how he did no task any concessions from the Russians.] [ZAKARIA - offers views on Flynn's role as a paid lobbyist for Turkey: an example of how Flynn may have been bought, Trump's loyalty to Flynn, what Trump was trying to get out of the Russians in their meeting: illogical, what Trump said about getting the pressure of by firing Comey.]
