(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The reports that President Trump weighed in on his son's misleading statement last month about the June 9, 2016, meeting with a Russian lawyer during the presidential election campaign re-introduced. [July 21, former national intelligence dir. James CLAPPER†- says this {the Trump Tower meeting} was traditional Soviet/Russian statecraft.] [In interview, CLAPPER - says this all casts doubt on the credibility of the administration: the optics resulting from an assault on truth with the daily drama out of the White House & it is a huge distraction; offer views on Trump & Russia, a nation who wants to undermine our system, the issue of diplomacy with North Korea with a diplomatic presence there as suggested by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.]
