(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with Representative Jim Himes about the Mueller report & Barr. [HIMES - offers views on how we need to see every word of the report, will negotiate about it, that the Barr letter is about clearing the president, but we have made progress with a fight over redaction, the issue of protecting the privacy of third parties, how he hopes the redactions will be immaterial, the issue of indicting a president.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Robert Ray, former FBI agent Asha Rangappa, Jeffrey Toobin & Carl Bernstein about Barr & the report. [TOOBIN, RAY, RANGAPPA, BERNSTEIN - offer views on Barr's four categories giving Barr discretion about what to release to the public, that President Trump is not in the fourth category, the confusion over the attorney general's authority, whether the categories are too broad, possible impeachable offenses, how Barr claims transparency & then holds back parts of the report when this is a matter of grave national importance, whether Barr is consulting with the White House about the report, whether the White House should have a role in the redaction.]
