Bannon vs. Anderson Cooper: Trump Was Investigating Corruption By Biden; Cooper: "That's Just Bull"

|

CNN's Anderson Cooper discusses the impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon.

ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: In general, is it okay for a president, any president to ask a foreign leader of a country fighting a war against our adversaries in need of aid to do a political favor and investigate his political opponent and hold aid over it.



STEVE BANNON, FMR. TRUMP ADVISOR, CAMPAIGN MANAGER: This is where your premise is wrong. Number one, one of the things that started this was "Secret Empires," the book that Peter Schweizer did that went after the permanent political class. This is where Biden and Mitch McConnell and others talked about where they get their money from... And China and Ukraine, and the issues were when he was vice president. I don't buy the assumption -- see you have this premise that it's about a political opponent. What they're investigating is the corruption --

COOPER: Oh, come on, give me a break. You're a smart guy. You know very well that that's just bull.

BANNON: It's not.

COOPER: It is.

BANNON: As a constitutional office --

COOPER: Number one, if you're concerned --

BANNON: Joe Biden should be more -- Anderson, should be more investigated I think about china and what he did the time in China with his son, how he got --

COOPER: The president agrees with you and asked China to investigate.
