(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Carl Bernstein & Jeffrey Toobin about the lawsuit brought by former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort against special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller, who leads the Russia investigation. [TOOBIN - offers views on the Manafort lawsuit & whether it could succeed: it is another tool to discredit Mueller, who has no public relations agenda, what Steve Bannon said in the Wolff book about money laundering & banks, what Trump has said about the Justice Department & jailing Huma Abedin.] [BERNSTEIN - offers views on how this is part of the aim by President Trump to make the investigation go away with the investigation getting closer to the Trump children as with the Trump Tower Russia meeting & a toxic presidency, the response of the White House: a train wreck; compares this matter to Watergate; notes the picture painted in the Wolff book of Trump: the "ugly twisted road" to Trump's mind.]
Cooper, Anderson
