(Studio: Jim Sciutto) President Trump's tweet about getting back to work & his criticism of the "tainted" FBI & deputy director Andrew McCabe quoted. [Dec. 8, Oct. 29, Nov/ 5, TRUMP - criticizes the FBI & the fake dossier.] The "dossier" compiled by British intelligence officer Christopher Steele for the Fusion GTS, which was paid for by the DNC & a Republican opponent of Trump with portions of the dossier corroborated but Trump blames it for the investigation into Russian contacts detailed.

(Studio: Jim Sciutto; Washington: Evan Perez) The Trump view that the entire investigation is based on the dossier, but how it is more than that: that Russia tried to meddle in the 2016 election with Trump tweets being just a distraction, how there is no sign the investigation by special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller will soon end discussed.

(Studio: Jim Sciutto) Live discussion held with CNN's former CIA & FBI agent Philip Mudd, law professor Carrie Cordero, columnist Matt Lewis & Carl Bernstein about Trump, the Russia investigation & the dossier. [BERNSTEIN, MUDD, CORDERO, LEWIS - offer views on how only the Trump presidency is "tainted" by undermining government institutions; the guilty pleas for lying to the FBI not connected to the dossier; the FBI & Mueller investigations based on different information beyond the dossier; the Republican response to Trump's attacks, the two scenarios about the president, the link of Mueller's team to Democratic funding indicating the FBI does not like Trump.]
