(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's John Dean & David Axelrod about a "New York Times" story President Trump discussed preemptive pardons for his adult children, Jared Kushner & Trump attorney Rudolph Giuliani. [DEAN - offers views on there being no previous kind of pardon like this, but it is not unexpected, on the language of the pardon of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, on what Giuliani could get & what could be challenged in court.] [AXELROD - offers views on how Trump does not respect the rule of law, but he cannot pardon for state-level crimes, on what Trump cares about: going out in a supernova of corruption.]
Cooper, Anderson
