(Detroit: Anderson Cooper) The reaction to President Trump naming Representative John Ratcliffe to succeed Dan Coats as national intelligence director introduced. Live discussion held with CNN's retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, author of "Darkness at Chancellorsville," about the nomination. [PETERS - offers views on how the president has to have intelligence information distilled to one page briefings & wants a "yes-man" in Ratcliffe who is unqualified: he should not be near the office of director of national intelligence, that Trump views anyone who disagrees with him as an enemy of the state.]
Cooper, Anderson
