[Vice President Mike PENCE - says the DOJ will have the inspector general look into surveillance.] [TRUMP - praises Representative Devin Nunes.] [March 22, 2017, NUNES - speaks about his concerns.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jim Acosta) What is known about the president meeting today with deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein, FBI director Chris Wray & national intelligence director Dan Coats about the demands leading to a meeting to review classified information & the lack of a press briefing today discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live interview held with Senator Richard Blumenthal about the Justice Department investigation at the president's request. [BLUMENTHAL - offers views on this being a dangerous concession because there are no facts to support an investigation of the FBI: it is a side show while the investigation by special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller goes on, that classified information could be disclosed, that the informant was not a spy but investigating the Russian connections, Giuiiani's claims that Mueller can wrap up the investigation by Sept. 1, that the FBI has been harmed by Trump's relentless attacks.]
