Trump: President can declassify docs “even by thinking about it”

View descriptionShare

Former President Trump claimed that “if you’re the President of the United States you can declassify just by saying it’s declassified” and “even by thinking about it.” CNN Legal Analyst Norm Eisen explains the process of declassifying documents to Anderson Cooper and says “even a President has to submit to the law.”

Plus, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi withdrew from a long-planned interview with CNN’s Chief International Anchor Christiane Amanpour after she “politely declined” a last-minute demand to wear a head scarf. Amanpour has interviewed every Iranian president since 1995. She explains to Anderson Cooper why she would never cover her head to conduct an interview with an Iranian official outside the country where it’s not required.
