Anderson Cooper can do much better than he just did with Trump's dumb lawyer. Why didn't he?

What is wrong with the media. They seem to be twisting themselves in a knot to not be tough on the Trumpsters.

12. It's tempting to say no...

If we don't get the various flunkies then it becomes a complete echo chamber.

Plus, you get the potential that one of them, besides Trump himself, will let something slip that they shouldn't.

4. He was pushing back. If you are talking about the Trump lawyer. Not

as much as he has to with Kellyanne Conway. But she's not normal. Neither is Gorka. And Anderson's job is not to editorialize. Just to report the facts.

6. I don't understand why Anderson meekly agreed with him that the meeting was legal

My understanding is that it IS illegal to meet with foreign nationals for campaign intelligence.

9. Think for a minute of where all of this Trumpy stuff would be...

if there were no special prosecutor, and no FBI investigation. Democrats and the press would be flailing their collective arms in impotent futility. GOP and Trump would be stonewalling the Congressional investigations that would be dragging along at a snail's pace until they'd get Breitbarted out of existence.

That's still possible.

10. Without evidence of its own, CNN/AC could only push back on the attorney so much.

All they have is what's on the record and logic. And the attorney was using every device of fallacy to sidestep the issues.

13. AC could've brought up his family religious scam

 

Every time that grifter is on, the host should confront him!
