Erin Burnett Makes CNN Debut (VIDEO)

Erin Burnett made her CNN debut on Monday night.

The former CNBC anchor jumped to CNN back in May, but has not been seen on the air. (She will host a 7 PM show for the network starting in September.) But she appeared on "The Situation Room" to discuss the debt ceiling deadlock with Wolf Blitzer. Burnett said that she had been speaking to investors who told her that John Boehner's plan in the House would lead to a downgrade of the U.S. government's credit.
