(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A Keeping Them Honest look at the new information about President Trump we learned last night & today especially from Trump lawyer former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani & the Trump tweets on Stormy Daniels that he repaid lawyer Michael Cohen for the Daniels hush payoff introduced. [Many times, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee SANDERS - says we give out the best information.] [Yesterday, on Fox, with Sean Hannity, GIULIANI says it was not campaign money & the president repaid it to Cohen.] That Giuliani said Trump knew Cohen would take care of things emphasized; Cohen s earlier denial he was not reimbursed noted. [Last month, on plane, TRUMP - says "no" to knowing about the payoff.] Trump tweets on Cohen & his agreement with Daniels quoted in full. [On Fox, GIULIANI - talks about payments to Cohen without knowing the details: Cohen made it go away.] What Cohen has been saying in the past about the payments noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jim Acosta) What Sanders said about Trump having knowledge about the payments & whether or not she lied or was not well informed & what it means for her credibility & that Giuliani blindsided the White House staff with the information he rolled out discussed. [SANDERS - says we give out the best information....]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Jeffrey Toobin & former Trump lawyer Jim Schultz about Giuliani, Trump, Cohen & Daniels. [TOOBIN - offers views on the legal issue of the Daniels payoff & whether it was a campaign expenditure, how the question is who paid the money.] [SCHULTZ - offers views on how this was a "personal expenditure" like the John Edwards case, defends the action as personal not an FEC issue.]
