(Studio: Anderson Cooper, Jim Sciutto) A report of a second undisclosed meeting at the G20 summit between President Trump & Russian President Vladimir Putin with no witness other than the Russian translator, so there is no record of what was said & the significance of this "pull-aside" discussed; White House statement quoted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Earlier discussion held with Senator Richard Blumenthal about the Trump-Putin meeting. [BLUMENTHAL - offer views on the pattern of concealment by the administration of meetings with Russians: this is an unprecedented hour-long private meeting, so there is a need for disclosure; comments on the 8th person at the Donald Trump, Jr., meeting with a Russian lawyer & the mystery/concealment about that meeting; states special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller is now investigating that meeting.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen, Pamela Brown, former CIA intelligence officer Rolf Mowatt-Larssen & former deputy asst. secretary of defense Michael Carpenter about the Trump-Putin meeting. [CARPENTER, GERGEN, BROWN, MOWATT-LARSSEN, BROWN  - offer views on the length of the Trump-Putin meeting & we don't know what was said there, how it is inappropriate for Trump to sit down with Putin without a record for our interests, why this is a newsworthy item, the identification of the 8th person {at the Trump Tower meeting} as Ike Kaveladze, who has ties to the Agaralov family, how the Mueller investigation is now looking at this unreported meeting.]
