(Studio: Anderson Cooper) The tension at the impending release of the report from special counsel former FBI director Robert Mueller introduced; President Trump's tweet quoted; details given about the concern Trump will go "bonkers" & what he may be concerned about. [Earlier, TRUMP - says he has not seen the Mueller report: I have been totally exonerated & off to deal with all the problems in this world.] What he said about former attorney Michael Cohen: [Aug. 23, 2018, TRUMP - says "flipping" is almost illegal.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper; White House: Kaitlan Collins) How Trump believes the report will exonerate him while those around him think the portrait will be unflattering, that it will not contain a bombshell, but damaging details about he White House based on what they told the special counsel discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Clinton aides Joe Lockhart & Paul Begala & former Trump aide Michael Caputo about the report. [BEGALA, LOCKHART, CAPUTO - offer views on the concerns inside the White House: they are worried about telling the truth, what happened in former President Bill Clinton's White House, how "these guys" are in a tough spot since there will be clues about improper contact with the Russians & perhaps obstruction, the concerns that the staffers may have said something inadvertent & they will become "famous,"which will be uncomfortable with death threats & it will be about impeachment, how Trump did not testify before Mueller: he will slip the noose, how the report will be so redacted we will depend on what Attorney General William Barr says, so Congress will have to go to court, how Democrats may best deal with Trump in the election.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Collins, Kaitlan
