(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jim Acosta) The decision by President Trump not to declassify & release the Democratic {Representative Adam Schiff} memo in response to the Republican memo from Representative Devin Nunes discussed; White House lawyer Don McGahn's call for a more suitable version of the memo considered too sensitive noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's attorneys Jeffrey Toobin, Anne Milgram; former FBI agent Josh Campbell & Evan Perez, Van Jones, Scott Jennings, Jen Psaki about the president & the memos. [MILGRAM, TOOBIN, CAMPBELL, PEREZ, JONES, JENNINGS, PSAKIĀ - offer views on the issue of declassifying the second memo, which is longer than the first memo, how the Democratic memo is a political response, why neither memo about FISA warrants should have been released, how the FBI opposes the memos: this kind of information is never released & can do damages, how the problem is we have a one-party state, a rationale for sending the memo back to the committee & later release it, how it is about politics, the issue of many in the White House not having FBI clearances, how we are in a whole new world with the House Intelligence Committee releasing this kind of information.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Acosta, Jim
