(Studio: Anderson Cooper; Washington: Gloria Borger, Evan Perez) Breaking news on CNN reports that President Trump's fixer Michael Cohen believed he would get a pardon if he protected the president, but it fell apart after the FBI raid on Cohen, with Trump attorney former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani denying anything about a pardon at this time & whether it would be part of an obstruction case in the investigation by special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller, how Cohen got the impression he would be taken care of, Cohen's later admission to Mueller of lying, the dissolution of the Cohen-Trump relationship after a long period of loyalty discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Laura Coates & Jeffrey Toobin, Yahoo's Michael Isikoff & CNN's analyst "New York Times" reporter Julie Hirschfeld Davis about Trump & Cohen. [TOOBIN, COATES, ISIKOFF, DAVIS - offer views on how this raises the possibility of Trump promising Cohen a pardon that would be abuse of presidential power, "the competition among Liars," the issues of corroboration about Cohen, how Congress has had ongoing hearings on the Russia investigation with Congress making Cohen testify about all matters just like in major scandals: public hearings.] Other material: Nixon's articles of impeachment quoted.
