[Today, TRUMP - says no collusion, no obstruction: This hoax should never happen again.] What Attorney General William Barr said noted. [BARR - says Trump was angered by his belief the investigation undermined his presidency, but the White House cooperated with the investigation.] Barr's March 24 letter & the report on the Russians & the campaign quoted & 102 pages of reports on the many contacts with the Russians with lies about these contacts noted. [BARR - says Mueller made it clear there was not a crime.] What the report says about the OLC legal conclusion & not being able to make a judgement quoted. How the report shows how Trump tried to get Don McGahn & deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein to fire Mueller quoted. [May 2017, SANDERS - says James Comey lost confidence in the FBI.] How the FBI did not say what Sanders said they said with the report quoted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Carl Bernstein, Gloria Borger, Dana Bash, Jeffrey Toobin, Kirsten Powers & David Urban about the report. [TOOBIN, BORGER, BERNSTEIN, URBAN, DASH, POWERS - offer views on Rosenstein incident: an active attempt to create false narrative about the Comey firing, how this is a narrative of the coverup by Trump: a damning document, how Mueller could not prove charges against Trump, how obstruction was examined, but it is debatable if it was criminality, that thee were political decisions, the reasons for the coverup, how the White House cooperated.]

Cooper, Anderson
