(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live telephone discussion held with CNN's "Washington Post" reporter Josh Dawsey about the possibility President Trump could fire Attorney General William Barr after Barr contradicted Trump about voter fraud in the presidential election. [Voice of DAWSEY - offers views on their confrontation over voter fraud & attempts to overturn the election & special counsel John Durham not delivering the report on the Russia investigation that Trump wanted, on why Barr is coming out now, on their tenuous relations over the last two months, on the issue of Barr's loyalty but the vote fraud issue was a bridge too far for Barr.]

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's "When Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation" author Andrew Weissmann & Carl Bernstein about Trump & Barr. [WEISSMANN - offers views on Barr being a rat deserting a sinking ship, on how Barr may have done this deliberately to resurrect his reputation, on the power of the presidential pardon & the issue of pardoning yourself, which could go to court. on whether Trump should be worried about the investigation of him in New York state.] [BERNSTEIN - offers views on what a Barr firing would do: stir up the base, on how Trump is the first truly subversive president: against the national interest, on how Trump wants to first protect Paul Manafort & pardon "his grifter children", on how the Trump presidency is above all about lying: all about himself & what the Republicans may do as Trump undermines elections.]
