Monday's 360 still had colossal panels. The big lead was Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee had some sort of meeting or encounter or rendezvous with *nobody knows* on the White House grounds to gather info last week and then then the next day announced some on the Trump transition team talked with foreign *leaders* and this was found out *incidentally* as if not on purpose. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-NY) is calling for Schiff to recuse himself from the investigation on Russia and Trump. Anderson talked to Phil Mattingly for more details. Same topic for Anderson's Q&A with Jim Acosta who also pointed out that Trump's White House has never made its visiter logs available to the press or public. Then it was a Q&A with ivan Perez focusing on the investigation, the calls to foreigners and how standard protocol had not been followed.
The second segment was Anderson's interview with Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-IA) who's also a member of the House Intel Committee about Nunes, the cancelled briefings, the investigation, the lack of transparency, Russia and coincidence vs. convergence.

After a review of the lead story Anderson introduced a panel of 7 of the usual pundits including Jeffrey Lord. I went to Hayes.

At the start of the fourth segment Anderson again reviewed the Nunes brouhaha and the new topic of Trump's SIL jared Kushner offering to testify before the House intel Committee because of new disclosures that he met with Russians. There was a clip of Sean Spicer stating those meeting were totally appropriate. Panel of 7 again.

The chyron at the start of the last segment of the first hour was "Spicer: Trump Walked Away From "Bad Deal"". There was a series of clips of Spicer and Trump cheerleading the GOP healthcare bill, stating it was wonderful, stating it would pass and Trump stating he would work hard to make it pass. Now Spicer is spinning. Anderson interviewed Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) about his meetings with Trump, Trump touting the GOP healthcare bill, what happens now, how the GOP bill happened, whether to fix the ACA and finally questions about Nunes.

The second hour of 360 started :57 in the first hour. Same topic: Nunes.

Great photo of Anderson! He doesn't say how many years ago "years ago" is but he looks at least a decade younger.

NOW THAT TRUMP MAN HAS GIVEN HIS SON IN LAW JARED, THE JOB OF TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE PRESIDENCY, ALONG WITH TOP LEVEL CLEARANCE FOR HIS SACRED DAUGHTER, SOMEONE MUST REMIND HIM,
THE ELECTORATE DID NOT VOTE FOR THEM.
HE ALONE MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HIS ACTIONS, CRAZY AS THEY ARE. NO ONE OBJECTS TO HIS
FINE TUNED RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS LOVED ONES, BUT ONCE THEY BECOME INVOLVED IN DAILY BRIEFINGS AND DAY TO DAY POLICY MAKING, IT GOES OVER THE LINE, AND YOU CAN'T CROSS EVERY LINE. WE THOUGHT YOU LEARNED THAT DUFFUS WITH YOUR INEPT ATTEMPT TO PASS HEALTH CARE LEGISLATION NO ONE WANTED,
EXCEPT PAUL RYAN, WHO BORE OF THE BRUNT OF YOUR INEPTNESS, TO SAVE THE PARTY.
RE PHOTO: DID THE ANDERSON OF TODAY, WITH HIS BLACK FRAMES AND CONSERVATIVE LEANINGS, MEET THE ANDERSON OF YESTERDAY? MY, HAVE WE CHANGED! AGE WILL DO THAT.

I was just glad to see Angela Rye included on the 360 panel again--she brings up subjects that most folks on that panel wouldn't even consider newsworthy or important and she always gets everything right about the corruption and incompetence of Trump.

Trump/Nunes and the rest of those clowns are going to do everything they can to prevent a proper Trump/Russia investigation--the public deserves to know if the election was compromised and whether Trump is really the legitimately elected president--the media wants to move on from that and they're always emphasizing that he was legitimately elected but I'm still not fully convinced. Too many odd connections to Russia/Putin.

@Cappy, that's what makes me furious about Ivanka & Jared--we did NOT vote for either of them.

TO ANSWER SEAN SPICER'S SNIPPY ANSWER TO APRIL RYAN, A REPORTER WHO ASKED ABOUT RUSSIAN COLLUSION WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION, "IF PRESIDENT TRUMP PUT RUSSIAN DRESSING ON HIS SALAD, WOULD THAT BE RUSSIAN COLLUSION?" IN HIS CASE SEAN, YES. FOR ALL WE KNOW THERE MAY WELL BE SOMETHING OTHER THAN MAYO AND KETCHUP, IN HIS SALAD DRESSING. THE WAY HE LIES, IT MAY BE
A "CRAZY SALAD" WITH VINEGAR ON THE SIDE, AND WHO'S TO SAY WHAT IS HIDDEN IN THE VINEGAR.
YOUR BOSS HAS A CREDIBILITY PROBLEM, AND MAKING JOKES ABOUT HIS "HIDDEN AGENDA" WITH RUSSIAN OPERATIVES, DOESN'T SET A VERY IMPARTIAL TONE. DID APRIL'S QUESTION STRIKE A NERVE OR IS YOUR BOSSES OBSESSION WITH THE RUSSIAN DICTATOR JUST PART OF HIS WEIRD EFFORT AT DIPLOMACY?
INQUIRING MINDS NEED TO KNOW, WHETHER YOU AND YOUR BOSS, LIKE IT OR NOT.
