(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Today's no-camera White House press briefing with deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jeff Zeleny) The undisclosed meeting between President Trump & Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit without an American translator, so there is no record of the meeting & what Trump said in the "New York Times" about the short length of the meeting discussed. [Voice of SANDERS - says the setting was a social dinner so it would be silly to have disclosed this.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Eurasia Group's Ian Bremmer & former US Ambassador to Russia Thomas Pickering about the Trump-Putin meeting. [BREMMER - offers views on how Trump's closest foreign relationship is with Putin & they had a one-hour conversation, not 15 minutes, the issue of Russia getting back US properties, the reasons for concerns about this meeting.] [PICKERING - offers views on how this was a long conversation that could have led to decisions as about no longer supporting the opposition in Syria, how it is unusual not to have a US interpreter at such an unprepared & unverifiable meeting.]
