(Studio: Anderson Cooper) "Washington Post" story that FBI investigators may have seized recordings made by President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen & questions about the future of deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein introduced. Live discussion held with CNN's attorneys Alan Dershowitz & Jeffrey Toobin. [TOOBIN - offers views on how disgraceful it is for the White House to want to get rid of Rosenstein because he is allowing special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller to pursue the investigation, the significance of recordings made by Trump lawyer Michael Cohen.] [DERSHOWITZ - offers views on how Rosenstein is a witness so he should be recused, but it is a legitimate legal step, how government agents will listen to the Cohen recordings even if it is privileged information; suggests a law for this kind of search/investigation as with Cohen.]
Cooper, Anderson
