"It's not surprising that our American policy for Russia for the last two years." In a new interview with Reuters, President Donald Trump tried to downplay the voluminous evidence ofcontacts between his campaign and Russia — including some information that was just released in the criminal sentencing memos of key aides in the run-up to the election.Despite Trump's efforts to cast aside these suspicious findings, former Acting Solicitor General Neal Katyal explained on "Anderson Cooper 360" why the new details are so troubling.When asked whether the contacts with Russia were "peanut stuff," as Trump claimed, Katyal said, "Heavens, no.""I mean, what this interview demonstrates more than anything is Donald Trump's delusional state," he continued. "This is of a piece with 'Totally clears the president. Thank you!' last week after the Cohen memos and things like that. The idea that this is 'peanut stuff,' the fact that he lied to the American people during the campaig...

In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, former Vice President Al Gore remembered former President George H.W. Bush’s “personal kindness” and his “deep and intense love for our country.” Gore recalled when he lost the 2000 presidential election to Bush’s son, George W. Bush, he received a phone call not long after it was made official from the 41st president to console him. “[H]e said such incredibly kind things,” said Gore. “What he said was rooted, again, in his love for our country. And I appreciated that so much. It was not the only time that he demonstrated that extraordinary kindness to me and I have really appreciated the kind of man that he was and his whole approach to public service.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent

Mueller's sentencing memo stated no prison time for Flynn, but what does that mean for Trump? CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin responded live on-air to special counsel Robert Mueller’s sentencing memo that suggested no prison time for former Trump aide Michael Flynn — and pointed out its larger implications.During a panel discussion with host Anderson Cooper, Toobin pointed out that although Mueller noted Flynn’s “distinguished” background of military service, the special counsel also included what could be a caveat.“However, senior government leaders should be held to the highest standards,” Mueller wrote in the heavily-redacted memo.“As we think about how Mueller is going to characterize what went on in the Trump White House, the fact that he is saying senior government leaders should be held to the highest standards — I would be a little nervous if I were the people involved in the obstruction of justice investigation, starting of course with the presi...

Monday on CNN, network anchor Anderson Cooper said President Donald Trump should read NASA’s website for children on climate after the president said he doesn’t believe a report from his administration about climate change. Cooper said, “He wants a great climate. Unclear what, if anything, the president wants to do about it. I’m not sure he has a robust understanding of the issues or even the most basic grasp of the issues.” He continued, “The president of the United States seems to be honestly believing that global warming means it never gets cold anywhere. Nasa has a good explanation of the difference between weather and climate on its website. It’s a website for children. We’re just suggesting, Mr. President, if you don’t want to believe science or the 1,600-page report your team tried to slip past the American public on Friday, maybe just start with climatekids.nasa.gov.

His criminality has become a joke. Observers of Special Counsel Robert Mueller were stunned Monday night when new court documents revealed that prosecutors have determined that former Trump Campaign Chair Paul Manafort has breached his plea deal by lying to the FBI.Without the protection of the agreement, Manafort is subject to being sentenced to the longest possible jail term for his crimes. He is unable to withdraw his guilty pleas even if the prosecutors recommend no leniency."I don't know exactly how to phrase this question, but how frickin' stupid is this guy?" said CNN's Anderson Cooper Monday night of Manafort."Very fricking stupid," responded legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin. "To get a cooperation agreement and the chance for a lower sentence was very important to him. Especially since he's 70 years old. To throw that away, to throw that benefit away, by continuing to lie to the special counsel's office is incredibly reckless and self-defeating."They noted, however, that Mana...

John Dean was horrified at the latest Trump revelations. The new report that President Donald Trump considered prosecuting Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey, only to be warned by White House counsel Don McGahn that he could face impeachment, has once again stunned political commentators.One observer who was particularly aghast was John Dean, the former White House counsel to Richard Nixon, who told CNN on no uncertain terms that this would be a red line too extreme even for Tricky Dick to cross."If I had to channel a little of Richard Nixon, I think he'd tell this President he's going too far," said Dean. "This is the sort of stuff of a banana republic. This is what an autocrat does. Political scientists have developed standards by looking at what they do all over the world, and Trump is checking all those boxes.

The president has clearly stoked anger against the media.

"But he is responsible, not just for allowing the chant 'CNN sucks!' at his rallies, but stoking it. Making clear that he likes it. And all you need is one — forgive me — crackpot.

"The media, refusing to take any responsibility for themselves.

"By the way, let's stop calling them 'white nationalists' and call them by their names, which are 'neo-Nazis' and 'Klansmen.'"He continued: "What Trump has done with regard to 'nationalists' is send a signal that, 'Well, we may not bring you home to Thanksgiving dinner and put you in the front row at the rallies, but you're an important and vital...

The federal government lurches to work on Trump's every whim.

This is the message the party can run on. Mitch McConnell recently went on TV and said in no uncertain terms that the Republican plan was to cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. A new Priorities USA Ad, “Big Cuts,” shows exactly what every Democrat should be saying over and over again between now and November 6. If Republicans keep control of Congress, they will use the $2 trillion cost of their tax handout to the wealthy as an excuse to slash Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.Article continues after the new video on the GOP’s plans for Big Cuts:It is heartening to see this excellent ad from Priorities USA, the largest Democratic Party super PAC.

President Donald Trump has been making wilder and even more obviously false claims in recent days and weeks as the 2018 midterm elections approach.On Tuesday, Trump's use of bald-faced lying took a bizarre turn when a reporter challenged him on his claim that the caravan of immigrants in Central American includes people from the Middle East and, by his implication, terrorists.
