(Studio: Anderson Cooper; Washington: Pamela Brown) A report that the scramble to receive pardons from President Trump has turned crazy in these final weeks in this administration with going to the White House TO lobby for pardons without going thorough the Justice Department, on consideration of pardons for his children, Trump attorney Rudolph Giuliani & perhaps himself & others in his orbit, on how he is delusional still over the elation results discussed.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Gloria Borger & Van Jones about Trump. [BORGER - offers views on the childish world of Donald Trump, who is preoccupied with the power of the pardon, on whether acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen will be pushed to appoint a special counsel to go after Hunter Biden.] [JONES - offers views on the needs for pardon when there have been abuses of power, but there is a process for doing it, on whether FBI director Chris Wray's job is in peril, on how President-elect Joe Biden needs to reinstate those who lost their jobs in government.]

Cooper, Anderson;
Brown, Pamela
