[White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee SANDERS - says we are focused on the work, nut a gutless, anonymous source could receive so much media attention.] Trump's tweets about Bob Woodward's book noted. [SANDERS - calls the book reckless & careless.] CNN poll findings on Trump's honesty/trustworthy outlined on screen. What Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis & White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly have said about what Woodward said they said noted. [On "Today," WOODWARD says they are not telling the truth, but the truth will emerge.] The demand for Woodward's book "Fear" that will come out tomorrow noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jeff Zeleny) How Woodward's book is not a surprise about the White House with Trump & Sanders speaking to the base, whether the president will move beyond the story discussed. [In response to Zeleny's question, SANDERS - says the staff is focused on doing our jobs & not dealing with anonymous cowards.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen, author Michael D'Antonio & law professor Jennifer Rodgers about Trump. [GERGEN, D'ANTONIO, RODGERS - offer views on the how the administration is still obsessing with this anonymous writer, the issue of Woodward's credibility versus that of Trump, how there is no crime for writing the op-ed or trying to undermine the administration, the lack of precedents for Trump in the days of President Nixon, how this shows a disrespect for the law on the part of Trump, the issue of whether Vice President Mike Pence's team could be involved with Pence offering to take the lie detector test, how the tests could be used as an employment tool, how it is degrading, the "fog bank" from Sanders.]
