In a highly combative interview with Stormy Daniel’s attorney Michael Avenatti and Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz, CNN host Anderson Cooper soon lost control as the two lawyers battered each other with insults.

With Dershowitz questioning the veracity and possible content in the tapes that federal investigators obtained from former Trump fixer Michael Cohen, Avenatti took him to task for opining on the subject when he is not a part of the legal teams on both sides of the aisle looking at Cohen or President Donald Trump.

“Alan, you really need to start talking only about things that you know about, as opposed to things that you have no knowledge about,” Avenatti argued. “You have no knowledge of the communications that went on between me and Michael Cohen’s representatives long before that — long before that — no, you don’t know what you’re talk about, Alan.”

“You have no idea about the communications that went on relating to a particular or proposed level of communication. You need to go back — let me finish,” Avenatti said as Dershowitz tried to cut in and Cooper advised, “Let him finish.”

“You need to go back and concentrate on what invites you’re getting on Martha’s Vineyard since that appears to be what you’re really good at,” the Stormy Daniels attorney snarked, noting an infamous column the Harvard professor wrote abut being a pariah due to defending Trump.

“Well, I’m about to head off to a party, so I have to leave in a minute,” Dershowitz shot back, to which Avenatti smirked, “Good luck to that.”

Before the two parted, Avenatti accused Dershowitz of working for Trump, saying, “I want to know about the relationship between you and Donald Trump. I think you ought to disclose the extent of the relationship.”

“I’ve met him three times in my life. all three times dealing with the Middle East. I have no relationship with him. But I  have to tell you, I do know legal ethics,” Dershowitz replied before it turned into an ugly squabble over both attorney’s public statements.

Trump supporter stumbles when CNN asks him to describe the president’s health care plan

Published

A supporter of President Donald Trump had difficulty this week when CNN's Alisyn Camerota asked him to describe President Donald Trump's elusive health care plan.

In a roundtable discussion of voters, a Trump supporter named Jimmy insisted that the president would take care of people who have preexisting conditions to make sure they can't be denied health insurance coverage.

However, Camerota noted that the president has still not released a health care plan, despite having pledged to do so for months now.

"But where is the plan?" she asked him.

"I haven't seen a plan, either," he acknowledged. "I'd say it would be pretty hard to go back on that promise when he said it so often."

Former Donald Trump staffer says conservative media ‘brainwashed’ her into hating Democrats

On CNN Wednesday, Jessica Denson, the former coordinator of the Trump 2016 campaign's Hispanic outreach who starred in a recent ad for Joe Biden, opened up about how she was taken in by the Trump campaign — and why he must be defeated.

"My motive to go and help that campaign and be of service to the American people was sabotaged, and I've seen my experience repeated in the experience of one public servant after another over the past four years," said Denson, who spearheaded a lawsuit to free former Trump campaign officials from nondisclosure agreements. "I have seen that this campaign continues to go out brandishing a Bible and an American flag and claiming that they have anything to do with freedom, but I've lived first-hand that they have nothing to do with freedom. They have worked very much against free speech and democracy."
