(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Our world with President Trump, the sentence for Paul Manafort & former fixer Michael Cohen & what Axios today calls the "biggest scandal in American history" introduced; Trump tweet on fake news about the Cohen payoff.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Trump associate Michael Caputo, Kirsten Powers & historian Tim Naftali about Trump. [NAFTALI - offers views on how the Trump "scandal" may compare to the Watergate scandal, on the four baskets of scandal: Russia in the election, obstruction of justice, campaign finance violations & presidential abuse of power, the "social experiment" with Trump not embracing the norms of the presidency: less of a sense of betrayal.] [CAPUTO - compares Watergate & Trump issues: that looking back this will not seem so serious, that the Russians do not intersect with the campaign, that we have to wait for the report from special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller.] [POWERS - offers views on how it could be bigger than Watergate with a foreign power interfering in the election, the campaign violations as a felony.]

Cooper, Anderson
