    CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer heaped praise on President Trump and his administration for opening up an immigration reform meeting with lawmakers to the press Tuesday.
    Blitzer, speaking with his colleague Jim Acosta, conceded he had to give Trump "a lot of credit" for allowing press cameras to cover a nearly hourlong discussion during a "really remarkable meeting" with Republicans and Democrats.
    Press coverage for the meeting was originally supposed to be a short pool spray at the beginning.
    Later in the day, capping an interview with White House director of legislative affairs Marc Short, Blitzer again showered his admiration for the administration's transparency.
    "Thank you for allowing that meeting today to be open to our TV cameras," Blitzer told Short. "I think it was very productive, very important. Glad that we got to see the president and the Republicans and Democrats in action. Keep doing it."
    Other journalists also praised Trump for opening the bipartisan meeting to the press.

    Wolf's praise for Trump comes just two days after a tense exchange on CNN between Jake Tapper and White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller, after which Miller was escorted off the set.

    The poor sucker in the White House will say whatever will make someone love him, even if one moment he says one thing and the next moment he says the opposite.

    Trump’s lawyers have previously stated their determination to cooperate with Mueller’s requests.

    The special counsel’s team of investigators has expressed interest in speaking with Trump, but no details have been worked out.

    Trump is again reiterating that there was “no collusion” between his 2016 presidential campaign and Russia. He says, “It seems unlikely you’d even have an interview.”


    How many times does he have to tell us “no collusion, no collusion”? Well that's good enough for bobbys it aught to be good enough for me!

    To me they can say "no collusion" as much as they like. As I recall, collusion isn't a crime. Conspiracy, on the other hand...

    Incredibly fine. It is the legal definitions that differ which make one a crime and the other likely a first amendment right. That's why you won't hear Trump or his team refer to anything they may have done as a conspiracy, but will refer to conspiracy by political opponents - i.e. Hillary, Democrats generally.

    If "asked" to testify Trump will say "no." He'll need to be forced. If forced he'll plead the fifth. If he actually talks he'll lie because that's what he is.

    Realistically, since he's a person with no interest in policy and no actual sense of direction, that's a very reasonable thing to say. He's just sat for an hour with both sides, listening to them discuss policy goals. He's agreed with both sides.

    A reasonable person could conclude, as he apparently did, that the two sides are able to find enough consensus to come up with a working policy, and when they do his job, as President, is to sign off on that.
