[In response to Acosta's question, TRUMP - talks about Ray Moore, how allegations can go the other way.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Recent interview held with Senator Bernie Sanders about Kavanaugh & Trump. [SANDERS - says he does not judge what Trump says about Kavanaugh, that he opposed Kavanaugh since the beginning, how at least three women have put their lives on the line to tell their stories about the judge, how there should be an FBI investigation of the allegations, the need to change the sexual attitude/culture of this country.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's David Gergen, Jeffrey Toobin & Kirsten Powers about Kavanaugh & these allegations. [TOOBIN, POWERS, GERGEN - offer views on the anonymous allegations as opposed to the three women, how it is "perilous" for women to come forward, whether the hearings tomorrow {with only one woman} can be conclusive, that a background investigation is needed, Trump's lack of any empathy for the women with all the men being innocent in Trump's eyes, how there is no chance of the FBI being involved in the third & the Ford cases, how Senators Susan Collins & Lisa Murkowski will have to decide on their credibility.]
