At the start Anderson delivered an overview on Rep. Devin Nunes, Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee - independent investigator or Trump's toady? There were various cops of Nunes, Trump and Spicer that showed coincidences, lying and denying. Manu Raju reported on the House Intel Comm investigation, Jim Acosta reported on Nunes' mysterious visit to the White House and the White House's lack of transparency concerning the Visitor Logs and Jessica Schneider reported on the Senate Intelligence Committee.
FBI Director Comey was supposed to deliver a speech soon but that must have happened during 360's second hour.

In the second segment Anderson interviewed Rep. Eric Swalwell (R-CA), member of the House Intel Comm, about Nunes, Trump, mysterious WH visits and the House investigation.

Anderson reviewed the lead story, said when Comey delivered his speech "we'll go to it LIVE..." and introduced a panel of only 4 of the usual pundits but one of them was Jeffrey Lord so I left.

More panel which started with Anderson asking Gloria Borger about SIL Jared Kushner's meeting with Russian bank bigwigs but again I left.

Ivanka Trump is now an official WH employee. Jim Acosta had the details about her no salary, security clearance, her promise to comply with ethics rules and how Trump skirts around anti-nepotism rules. The panel this time was only three but still Lord was there. I went back to Hayes.

The problem with not watching the second hour and not seeing 360 yesterday (DH absolutely had to watch "Galaxy Quest") is that I don't know if Anderson covered the GOPers in Congress passing a bill to let corporations buy your internet history, Brexit becoming official or two of Gov. Christie's Bridgegate staffers going to jail. Anderson could have easily reported on any of these instead of having two panel segments.

THANK YOU JAANZA FOR YOUR CONCISE UPDATE AS USUAL, CLEAR AND TO THE POINT.
TODAY HOWEVER, FLYNN AGREED TO TESTIFY FOR IMMUNITY FROM PROSECUTION. THE PANEL OF 80, ALL INTELLECTS, EXCEPT FOR JACK KINGSMAN A TRUMP LOYALIST, WHO I ALSO CAN'T STAND, AGREED THAT FLYNN MUST HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY IF HE WANTS IMMUNITY. I'D WANT IMMUNITY EVEN AFTER SEEING TRUMP FOR FIVE SECONDS, LET ALONE HAVING HAD "THE HONOR OF COLLUDING WITH HIM," AS LONG AS FLYNN DID.
DAVID GERGEN AND DAVID AXLEROD, BOTH AGREED THAT THERE WAS A VERY DARK CLOUD HANGING OVER THIS
WHITE HOUSE NOW THAT FLYNN WAS AGREEING TO TESTIFY. NOBODY SEEMED SURE WHERE "DEVIN NUNES" CHAIRPERSON OF THE CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE, THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE INVESTIGATING COLLUSION WITH RUSSIAN OPERATIVES AND THIS ADMINISTRATION, FIT IN TO THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS.
ALL I CAN SAY IS: DRIP, DRIP, DRIP, AND RALPH NADER WAS RIGHT. TRUMP WILL BE IMPEACHED SOONER OR LATER AND WE WILL HAVE TO SHELL OUT MORE CASH TO PAY THE BILL, BECAUSE PRESIDENT SCUM, WILL REFUSE TO RESIGN EVEN THOUGH THE GRAFFITI IS EDGED INTO THE CEMENT. AT LEAST IN THE NIXON YEARS, IMPEACHMENT TOOK LONGER, THE SECOND TERM, BUT TRUMP IS SO MUCH LOWER IN STATUS THAT HE CAN'T EVEN MAKE IT THROUGH THE FIRST HUNDRED DAYS. SCANDAL AND CRIMINALITY CAN REALLY WEIGH YOU DOWN.
I KNOW I MAY BE PERCEIVING THINGS PREMATURELY, BUT SOMETHING TELLS ME, I'VE SEEN THIS MOVIE
BEFORE. THE DAUGHTERS WEREN'T AS PRETTY, BUT AT LEAST THE WIFE WASN'T A MAIL ORDER BRIDE AND SPOKE ENGLISH FLUENTLY AND ACTUALLY LIVED IN THE WHITE HOUSE, AND NOT THE PENTHOUSE.
