(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A Keeping Them Honest look at the answers & questions raised by conclusions from the report from special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller that President Trump & his campaign did not collude with the Russians in the 2016 election & there was no conclusion of obstruction of justice introduced. [Yesterday, TRUMP - says there was no obstruction & it was complete exoneration.] What Mueller & Attorney General William Barr said about exoneration noted. [Last night on CNN, John DEAN - offers views on the different words from him & Barr.] The unanswered questions about why so many people lied about the Russia connections & how the report seems to dispel some of the charges made over the last years noted. [In the past, many times, TRUMP - criticizes Mueller as conflicted.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Jim Acosta) Whether the White House has seen the full Mueller report with no answer on whether the report will be released to the public, the nuance between Mueller & Barr on obstruction, the reaction o f Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway with the cloud over the Trump campaign lifted, the many unanswered questions discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; Capitol Hill: Manu Raju) What Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is saying now that the focus should be on the economic issues rather then the fallout from the Mueller report with Congressional investigations going on by Representative Adam Schiff discussed. [PELOSI - avoids question about collusion.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with Senator Richard Blumenthal about the Democratic focus. [BLUMENTHAL - outlines the areas that should be focused on with the need to still see the Mueller report beyond the Barr summary, how there is still evidence of collusion with examples of Trump's links/cooperation to Russia: we need transparency about the report. since Mueller did not exonerate the president, the need for Congressional oversight to safeguard against Russian interference.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Carrie Cordero & former Whitewater independent counsel Robert Ray about the Mueller report. [CORDERO - offers views on what Blumenthal said about obstruction of justice, on the several parts of the Russian story with no one documents explaining it all.] [RAY - offers views on the determination that there is not criminal collusion or obstruction & that finding has consequence, that the public is entitled to "content",: to determine the reasoning, that there will be amplification from Barr & Mueller.]
