>>>TONIGHT, THE NATION RIVETED BY THE MUELLER REPORT. THE MOST ANTICIPATED DOCUMENT PUBLIC EXPOSING SECRETS AND LIES AND DETAILING EXPLOSIVE NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP’S REPEATED EFFORT TO THWART THE INVESTIGATION AND HOW HE WAS STOPPED BY THE PEOPLE AROUND HIM. MUELLER LAYING OUT A CASE FOR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE BUT EXPLAINING WHY HE DID NOT REACH A DECISION. THE PRESIDENT DECLARING VICTORY AS MUELLER FINDS NO EVIDENCE WITH CONSPIRACY WITH THE RUSSIANS. >>THIS HOAX, THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ANOTHER PRESIDENT AGAIN. >>DEMOCRATS BLASTING THE ATTORNEY GENERAL OVER HIS DESCRIPTION OF THE REPORT AND WHAT MUELLER ACTUALLY SAYS. TONIGHT NO CHARGES BUT A NEW FIGHT JUST GETTING STARTED. >>>ALSO TONIGHT, ALARMING NEWS ABOUT THE MEASLES AS THE OUTBREAK SPREADS. HEALTH OFFICIALS SAY EVEN IF YOU’VE GOTTEN THE VACCINE IN THE PAST, YOU MIGHT NEED TO GET IT AGAIN TO MAKE SURE YOU’RE PROTECTED. >>>NEW DEVELOPMENTS ON A SCARE FOR ST. PATRICK’S DAY AFTER THE INFERNO, A MAN ARRESTED WITH TWO FULL GAS CANS AND TOOLS, ENOUGH TO START A MASSIVE FIRE AT THE MOST FAMOUS CATHEDRAL IN AMERICA. >>>AND CHANGES TO YOUR UBER RIDE AFTER A MURDER THAT SHOCKED THE NATION. A YOUNG WOMAN GETTING INTO WHAT SHE THOUGHT WAS HER RIDE SHARE. INSTEAD, POLICE SAY IT WAS A DEADLY TRAP. TONIGHT THE NEW SECURITY MEASURES GOING INTO EFFECT NATIONWIDE. >>Announcer: THIS IS “NBC NIGHTLY NEWS” WITH LESTER HOLT. >>>WELL, GOOD EVENING, EVERYONE. HERE IS THE MUELLER REPORT THAT HELD THE COUNTRY IN SUSPENSE FOR NEARLY TWO YEARS. 448 PAGES, LOTS OF REDACTIONS AND FINALLY MADE PUBLIC TODAY BUT NOT BEFORE ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR MADE A ROSIE TAKE WITH NO COLLUSION AND EXPRESSING EMPATHY FOR THE PRESIDENT’S PREDICAMENT BUT TONIGHT OUR DEEP READ INTO THESE PAGES REVEALS A PRESIDENT THAT SOUGHT TO INFLUENCE THE INVESTIGATION IN WAYS WE KNEW AND DIDN’T KNOW UNTIL NOW. PETE WILLIAMS LEADS EXPANDED COVERAGE. >>Reporter: THE DAY ROBERT MUELLER WAS APPOINTED SPECIAL COUNSEL MAY 17th, 2017, PRESIDENT TRUMP LEARNED ABOUT IT IN THE OVAL OFFICE ACCORDING TO THE MUELLER REPORT SLUMPED BACK IN HIS CHAIR AND SAID OH MY GOD. THIS IS TERRIBLE. THIS IS THE END OF MY PRESIDENCY, I’M F-ED ADDING LATER THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME. THE SPECIAL COUNSEL INVESTIGATION CONCLUDED NEITHER THE PRESIDENT NOR ANYONE IN THE PRESIDENT’S CAMPAIGN HELPED THE RUSSIANS HACK INTO DEMOCRATIC COMPUTERS TO STEAL AND POST EMAILS OR SETUP PHONY SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS TO SPREAD DISINFORMATION. WILLIAM BARR SAID TODAY THAT’S GOOD NEWS. >>THAT’S SOMETHING ALL AMERICANS CAN AND SHOULD BE GRATEFUL TO HAVE CONFIRMED. >>Reporter: BUT THE REPORT SAID SEVERAL ACTIONS OF THE PRESIDENT WERE AMOUNTED TO OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, SOME ARE WELL-KNOWN LIKE THE FIRING OF THE FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY AND THE WAY THE PRESIDENT EXPLAINED IT TO LESTER. >>WHEN I DECIDED TO DO IT, I SAID TO MYSELF, I SAID, YOU KNOW, THIS RUSSIA THING WITH TRUMP AND RUSSIA IS A MADE UP STORY. >>Reporter: BUT THE REPORT SAYS SUBSTANTIAL EVIDENCE INDICATES THAT THE CATALYST FOR THE PRESIDENT’S DECISION TO FIRE COMEY WAS THAT COMEY WOULDN’T SAY THE PRESIDENT WAS NOT PERSONALLY UNDER INVESTIGATION. THE REPORT SAYS THE PRESIDENT’S CONDUCT CHANGED AFTER HE REALIZED THAT HE WAS UNDER INVESTIGATION AND THAT HE REPEATEDLY TRIED TO FORCE MUELLER’S REMOVAL. IT SAYS HE TOLD THE WHITE HOUSE COUNSEL DON McGAHN TO FIRE MUELLER BUT THAT McGAHN DECIDED HE WOULD RATHER QUIT THAN CARRY OUT THAT ORDER FEARING ANOTHER SATURDAY NIGHT MASSACRE. THE REPORT SAYS THE PRESIDENT ASKED HIS FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER COREY LUN DOW SKY TO SAY THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION WAS UNFAIR TO THE PRESIDENT. THAT MESSAGE WAS NEVER DELIVERED ALTHOUGH THE PRESIDENT REMAINED FURIOUS HE TOOK SESSIONS OUT BECAUSE HE CAMPAIGNED WITH THE PRESIDENT. >>THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS I’M GOING TO RECUSE MYSELF. AND I SAID, WHY THE HELL DIDN’T HE TELL ME THAT BEFORE I PUT HIM IN? >>Reporter: FOR THE INFAMOUS TRUMP TOWER MEETING IN JUNE 2016, THE PRESIDENT MADE MISLEADING PUBLIC STATEMENTS BUT DID NOT TRY TO MISLEAD INVESTIGATORS. TEN ACTIONS IN ALL WERE INVESTIGATED BUT MUELLER CONCLUDED THE EVIDENCE WASN’T CLEAR ENOUGH TO FIRMLY ESTABLISH THE PRESIDENT INTENDED TO OBSTRUCT JUSTICE BECAUSE SOME THINGS HAPPENED IN PUBLIC VIEW, IT WAS HARD TO DETERMINE THE PRESIDENT’S INTENT AND BECAUSE THERE WAS NO OTHER CRIME TO COVER UP. BUT MUELLER’S TEAM SAYS IF WE HAD CONFIDENCE THAT THE PRESIDENT CLEARLY DID NOT COMMIT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, WE WOULD SO STATE. MUELLER WRITES THAT HE CONCLUDED HE COULD HAVE GOTTEN A GRAND JURY SUBPOENA TO TRY TO FORCE THE PRESIDENT TO ANSWER QUESTIONS. WE CHOSE NOT TO DO SO MUELLER SAID IN VIEW OF THE SUBSTANTIAL DELAY SUCH A STEP WOULD PRODUCE AT A LATE STAGE IN THE INVESTIGATION. THE PRESIDENT DID RESPOND TO WRITTEN QUESTIONS SAYING HE DIDN’T RECALL OR DIDN’T REMEMBER IN 35 OF THE ANSWERS. OTHER THAN DECLINING IN PERSON INTERVIEWS, THE WHITE HOUSE COOPERATED WITH THE MUELLER INVESTIGATION. AS FOR THE CRITICAL QUESTION WHY NO INDICTMENT, MUELLER SAYS HE’S BOUND BY A LONG-STANDING BAN ON INDICTING A SITTING PRESIDENT FOR THAT REASON, HIS REPORT REACHES NO CONCLUSION ABOUT WHETHER PRESIDENT TRUMP OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE. >>DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE POLICY PRECLUDES CHARGING A SITTING PRESIDENT. THE MUELLER TEAM WAS BOUND BY THAT POLICY. SO THEREFORE THEY COULDN’T RECOMMEND CHARGING A SITTING PRESIDENT, EITHER. >>Reporter: THE REPORT STRONGLY IMPLIES THE EVIDENCE OF OBSTRUCTION IS SUBSTANTIAL AND IT’S UP TO CONGRESS BECAUSE IT HAS THE POWER OF IMPEACHMENT BUT GENERAL BARR SAID HE AND ROD ROSENSTEIN FELT THEY HAD TO REACH A CONCLUSION AND FELT THE EVIDENCE DID NOT ESTABLISH OBSTRUCTION. >>THAT’S OUR RESPONSIBILITY AND THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THE TOOLS WE HAVE AND WE DON’T GO THROUGH THIS PROCESS JUST TO COLLECT INFORMATION AND THROW IT TO THE PUBLIC. >>Reporter: THE REPORT IS MORE DEFINITIVE ABOUT EFFORTS VLADIMIR PUTIN AND RUSSIA TO INFLUENCE THE CAMPAIGN. IT SAYS RUSSIA PERCEIVED IT WOULD BENEFIT FROM THE PRESIDENCY AND THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN EXPECTED TO BENEFIT FROM THE INFORMATION THE RUSSIANS STOLE BUT THE INVESTIGATION DID NOT ESTABLISH MEMBERS OF THE CAMPAIGN CONSPIRED OR COOPERATED WITH THE RUSSIANS. THE REPORT SAYS THERE WERE NUMEROUS CONTACTS BETWEEN THE RUSSIANS AND MEMBERS OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN BUT DID NOT AMOUNT TO ILLEGAL INFLUENCE AND THAT NO MEMBER ACTED ON BEHALF OF THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT NOR DOES IT SAY ANYTHING TO SUGGESTION VLADIMIR PUTIN HAD ANY HOLD OVER PRESIDENT TRUMP. AS FOR THOSE REDACTIONS, THE SECTION DEALING WITH OBSTRUCTIONS IS ONLY LIGHTLY BLACKED OUT BUT THE OTHER EXAMINING CONTACT WITH THE RUSSIANS HAS SOME HEAVY REDACTIONS MANY SITING ON GOING INVESTIGATIONS. BARR SAID HE’LL LET SOME MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SEE A VERSION THAT’S ONLY GRAND JURY INFORMATION BLACKED OUT WHICH HE SAYS HE’S LEGALLY REQUIRED TO KEEP SECRET. >>PETE JOINS US NOW. ONE THING WE NOTICED, A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHAT THIS REPORT SAID AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR SUMMARIZED IT LAST MONTH. >>THE REPORT SUGGEST IT WAS STRONG BUT THE EVIDENCE WASN’T DEFINITIVE AND POINTED IN BOTH DIRECTIONS AND THE LACK OF CONCLUSION ABOUT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE WAS NOT BASED ON THIS CONSTITUTIONAL BAN ON INDICTING A SITTING PRESIDENT, LESTER. >>PETE WILLIAMS, THANK YOU. >>>THE REACTION IS FAST AND FURIOUS WITH THE PRESIDENT AND THE WHITE HOUSE AND HIS LAWYERS DECLARING VICTORY AND DEMOCRATS PLOTTING THEIR NEXT STEPS. WE HAVE IT ALL COVERED STARTING WITH PETER ALEXANDER. WHAT IS THE LATEST FROM THERE? >>Reporter: LESTER, GOOD EVENING. THE PRESIDENT IS PROJECTING CONFIDENCE AND HIS PERSONAL LAWYERS ARE FEELING SO EMBOLDENED THEY MIGHT NOT PUT OUT A COUNTER REPORT, EAGER TO TURN THE PAGE BUT WILL THE REPORT’S DETAILS ALLOW THEM TO MOVE ON? JUST MOMENTS AFTER THE REDACTED REPORT WAS RELEASED, PRESIDENT TRUMP INTERRUPTING A CELEBRATION OF WOUNDED WARRIORS CALLING IT A PERSONAL VICTORY. >>GOOD DAY. NO COLLUSION, NO OBSTRUCTION. THERE NEVER WAS AND NEVER WILL BE. >>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT CASTING HIMSELF AS A VICTIM. >>THIS HOAX, THIS SHOULD NEVER HAPPEN TO ANOTHER PRESIDENT AGAIN. >>Reporter: ON A DAY PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS WAITED NEARLY TWO YEARS FOR TWEETING A GAME OF THRONES THEME GAME OVER. HIS AIDS ECSTATIC. >>THE BEST DAY SINCE HE GOT ELECTED. >>Reporter: HIS PERSONAL LAWYERS GRANTED PERMISSION TO VIEW THE REPORT AHEAD OF TIME CALLING IT A MASSIVE WIN. >>EVEN UNDER A TWISTED THEORY OF OBSTRUCTION, OBSTRUCTION, I CALL IT OBSTRUCTION BY TWEET, EVEN UNDER THAT TWISTED THEORY, THEY COULD NOT WRITE UP A REPORT ON OBSTRUCTION. >>Reporter: BUT WHILE THE SPECIAL COUNSEL’S REPORT DIDN’T PUT THE PRESIDENT IN IMMEDIATE LEGAL JEOPARDY, POLITICALLY GIVES DEMOCRATS NEW AMMUNITION, ESPECIALLY ON THE ISSUE OF OBSTRUCTION. THE REPORT PAINTS A REMARKABLE PORTRAIT AS THE PRESIDENT AS A MAN OBSESSED WITH THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION TRYING TO SEIZE CONTROL OF THE INQUIRY THROUGH HIS WHITE HOUSE AIDS AND HIGHLIGHTS AT LEAST TEN CURRENT AND FORMER ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS OR ASSOCIATES THAT DID NOT CARRY OUT HIS ORDERS INCLUDING DON McGAHN THAT REFUSED TO TELL THE ACTING ATTORNEY GENERAL TO FIRE MUELLER. >>SHOULD MUELLER TESTIFY? >>Reporter: TONIGHT THE PRESIDENT IGNORING QUESTIONS OFFERING ONLY SMILES AND WAVES. THE REPORT HE THOUGHT MIGHT END HIS PRESIDENCY NOW MARKS THE BEGINNING OF A NEW PHASE. PETER ALEXANDER, NBC NEWS, THE WHITE HOUSE. >>>I’M KASIE HUNT ON CAPITOL HILL WHERE DEMOCRATS TONIGHT ARE LASHING OUT AT THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. >>WE CLEARLY CAN’T BELIEVE WHAT ATTORNEY GENERAL BARR TELLS US. >>Reporter: SAYING A REDACTED MUELLER REPORT ISN’T ENOUGH NOW THREATENING TO SUBPOENA THE FULL REPORT WITH THE UNDERLYING EVIDENCE AND DEMANDING TO HEAR FROM THE SPECIAL COUNSEL IN PERSON. >>I WANT TO BE ABLE TO ASK MR. MUELLER WHO IS A FORMER REPUBLICAN APPOINTED FBI DIRECTOR ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED WITH THIS INVESTIGATION. >>Reporter: TODAY THE ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYING HE’S FINE WITH MUELLER APPEARING. >>I HAVE NO OBSTRUCTION TO BOB MUELLER TESTIFYING. >>Reporter: MUELLER SAID THERE WASN’T ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO CHARGE THE PRESIDENT, DEMOCRATS ARE ZEROING IN ON THE ISSUE OF OBSTRUCTION SITING THIS PASSAGE THAT SAYS CONGRESS SHOULD MAKE A DECISION WRITING QUOTE, CONGRESS MAY APPLY THE OBSTRUCTION LAWS TO THE PRESIDENT’S CORRUPT EXERCISE OF THE POWERS OF OFFICE. >>IN TERMS OF OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, CERTAINLY MR. MUELLER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO SAY THERE WAS NO OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE, HE DID NOT. THAT QUESTION IS NOW OPEN FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO CONCLUDE. >>Reporter: ALL OF IT ADDS FUEL TO THE SEVERAL INVESTIGATIONS THAT HOUSE DEMOCRATS ALREADY HAVE UNDERWAY. INTO EVERYTHING FROM THE PRESIDENT’S FINANCES TO POSSIBLE ABUSE OF POWER BUT TONIGHT, REPUBLICANS ARE INSISTING THE MUELLER REPORT SHOULD CLOSE THIS CHAPTER. >>I THINK OUR FRIENDS ON THE OTHER SIDE WILL TRY TO DESTROY THEIR REPUTATION BECAUSE THEY DON’T LIKE WHAT THEY ARE HEARING. YOU SHOULDN’T BUY THAT. >>Reporter: BARR IS SET TO TESTIFY BEFORE CONGRESS IN JUST TWO WEEKS AND DEMOCRATS WANT MUELLER TO TESTIFY BEFORE MAY 23rd. THEY HAVE ALSO PROMISED SUBPOENAS THAT FOR THE UNREDACTED REPORT ANY DAY NOW, LESTER. >>KASIE HUNT, THANK YOU. >>LET’S BRING IN CHUCK TODD, MODERATOR OF “MEET THE PRESS.” YOU’VE BEEN GOING THROUGH THE PAGES ALL DAY. WHAT’S THE BIGGEST TAKEAWAY? >>THE HEADLINE IS NO COLLUSION, NO EXONERATION AS THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND BILL BARR SET US UP FOR THREE AND A HALF WEEKS. WHEN YOU READ THROUGH, YOU SEE MUELLER FOUND ATTEMPTED OBSTRUCTION AND ATTEMPTED CONSPIRACY. ON THE OBSTRUCTION, THE PRESIDENT WAS ESSENTIALLY PROTECTED BY A STAFF THAT REFUSED TO FOLLOW HE HIS ORDERS AND ON THE CONSPIRACY, BASICALLY A KEYSTONE COP’S ASPECT OF THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN, THEY WANTED TO CONSPIRE, THEY JUST NEVER FOUND THE RIGHT OPPORTUNITY TO DO SO. SO THIS REPORT GIVES A LOT OF AMMUNITION TO CONGRESS TO KEEP INVESTIGATING. >>HALLIE TO YOU, WHAT DOES THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION GOING TO DO TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T HAPPEN AGAIN? >>THE DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY FOR EXAMPLE IS PART OF A PUSH TO SURE UP STATE AND LOCAL ELECTION INFRASTRUCTURE AND PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNING AN EXECUTIVE ORDER LAST FALL TO THREATEN SANCTIONS ON THOSE WHO DO INTERFERE AND THE NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY ATTACKED A RUSSIAN TROLL FARM. THEY SAY THEY DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TEETH TO BE EFFECTIVE. THEY SAY THERE IS NO LEADERSHIP. THEY WANT TO SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP BE TOUGHER IN THE FACE OF PUTIN’S DENIALS SINCE INTELLIGENCE LEADERS REPEATEDLY WARNED THAT RUSSIA AND OTHERS ARE AT IT AGAIN COME 2020. >>THANKS TO BOTH OF YOU. A LOT TO DIGEST HERE. YOU CAN READ THE ENTIRE REPORT AT NBCNEWS.COM. >>>WE’LL TURN TO SOMETHING NOW YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WHETHER YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE REALLY PROTECT FROM THE SPREADING MEASLES OUTBREAK. TONIGHT, ONE MAN SAYS HE GOT THE MEASLES EVEN THOUGH HE THOUGHT HE HAD BEEN PROPERLY VACCINATED. NBC’S MIGUEL ALMAGUER HAS THE STORY. >>I NEED YOU TO HEAR MY STORY. >>Reporter: HE POSTED HIS STORY ON YOUTUBE HOPING HIS MESSAGE WOULD SPREAD FASTER THAN THE MEASLES VIRUS. BORN IN THE ’60s HE WAS GIVEN A SINGLE-DOSE FIRST GENERATION VACCINE BELIEVING HE WAS IMMUNIZED. WHEN HE THOUGHT HE HAD THE FLU, NEITHER HE NOR HIS DOCTOR SUSPECTED MEASLES BUT SOON 20 OTHERS IN HIS DETROIT COMMUNITY WERE SICK WITH THE SAME SYMPTOMS. >>SEVERAL OF US HAD PHENOMENA, BRONCHITIS, HEARING IMPAIRMENT, VISION IMPAIRMENT WHICH WENT ON FOR TWO WEEKS. >>Reporter: AFTER HE WAS DIAGNOSED, FREED HE LEARNED HIS CHILDHOOD VACCINE WAS NOT EFFECTIVE.

IN CALIFORNIA A NEW CASE AT GOOGLE AS MEASLES CONTINUE TO SPREAD AT HISTORIC RATES, THOSE WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE PROTECTED, MAY NEED TO THINK AGAIN.

  1. Well I'm relieved now. They can now run for election on policy and merit instead of just trying to oust the president.

  2. What truly amazes me, is that same people who could not for the life of them understand how Barr could write a 4 page summary in 48 hours are now the SAME ones Explaining to us and commenting on that same report in mere hours.

  3. Mueller report, page 13, "…..the investigation did not establish that members of the Trump Campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government in its election interference activities."

  4. Russia gave Paul Manafort a big jar of black caviar, worth between $30,000.00 – $40,000.00 in exchange for promoting a "peace" plan that would allow Russia to occupy Eastern Ukraine. Russia tried to promote chaos in our country by promoting political rallies, using Facebook fake accounts, "United Muslims of America" (300,00 followers) "Don't shoot us" (250,000 followers) "Being Patriotic" (200.00 followers) "Secured Borders" 130,000 followers). Russia had 470 fake Facebook accounts, 3,814 fake Twitter accounts. Russia paid about $100.000.00 for 3,500 fake ads on Facebook. The question is why? Because when forces of chaos divide us into tribes we are weak. The goal for the Russians is to establish a corrupt government in our country similar to the one they have there. A government run by the 50ย oligarchs controlled by one boss, that rig elections and plunder the country. Think about that the next time you see a Russian bot's post, direct from St. Petersburgย or aย fakeย social media account or ad.ย Like Nikita Krushev said, they want "to bury us."

  5. If as a child, you caught and recoverd from BOTH of the Two Types of Measles in the 1960's – Rubella and Rubeola – also known as, the milder form of '3-Day Measles', and the (2-week) 'German Measles' you should be immune* – for life!

    * – However, if you have since had a splenectomy, or are on some of the more potent, injectable, anti-inflammatory immune-modulators for certain forms of arthritis and auto-immune diseases, you may not have the expected immune response to be protected from infectious disease as other do.
    Speak with your Rheumatologist, or Hematology-Oncologist, first!

  6. Lets hope there is NEVER another President like this again. My God we impeached a president for having an Extramarital affair !!! If Congress does not do their job the people will have a say at the ballot box. But can America wait for the next election. Who ever stands up and has the balls to call trump out, Is going to go down in history . Why are the repbulicans so afraid of him, they should fear the people at the ballot box

  7. this president is such a moron the only reason he was not convicted for obstruction was because of session's and other's

  8. And NBC SUCKS it was conspiracy MUELLER was looking for and found it BARR kept saying collusion no collusion OVER AND OVER AGAIN …BARR IS TRUMPS NEW FIXER

  9. A message for Donnie Bonespurs: We can only HOPE the Mueller report will prove to be "the end of your presidency," one way or another.

  10. sad. NBC news has such a storied past with some of histories finest journalist. to see this network and its news organization sink to the level of conspiracy theorists and political punditry is just sad.

  11. "Rosy take" is subjective and not objective NEWS reporting, shame on you! You lead with thing kind of bias indicates your lake of honor. I am looking for unbiased reporting looked at ABC did not find it turned to your page and right off the bat the bias shined through! very sad indeed! ๐Ÿ™
    Why not report on the lack of apologies for accusing a sitting President of being a Russian operative? If any one of us were accused of what he was would also fight at every angle to clear our name on such a terrible accusation. Unbalanced reporting ๐Ÿ™ I look elsewhere for honest reporting.

  12. The American PEOPLE (VOTERS, i.e TAXPAYERS) DEMAND CONGRESS GET THE UNREDACTED MUELLER REPORT. CONGRESS has the NECESSARY SECURITY CLEARANCES to see the report UNREDACTED. LET CONGRESSS DO THE JOB THEY WERE ELECTED TO DO.

  13. Lmao uber drivers are instructed by uber to ask what there name is, all you have to do is check the license plate, it's listed right under the driver's picture!

  14. You all need mental help over there at NBC.
    JUST BECAUSE A PERSON VENTED ABOUT BEING FALSELY TARGETED FOR A CRIME THEY DIDN'T COMMIT is obstruction of justice- then we have no 1st amendment.
    Just because he wanted to fire Muller and asked an attorney to fire him. An attorney can't fire Muller. Trump would have had to do it. (So, GET OVER IT YOU FREAKIN WINEBAGS) JUST BECAUSE YOU DIDN'T GET YOUR WAY, YOU DOUBLE DOWN ON STUPIDITY AND WILL LEARN THE HARD WAY IN 2020…

  15. Really, multiple vaccinations…
    Justin Case… Really?
    For meassels… I got vaccinated once, 60 years ago…
    I got meassels at a meassels party!
    I don't get it. Get it?
    It works, and it has worked for generations. Why did you have to go and fix it?

  16. There can be no obstruction of justice when the whole investigation was based on a fake dossier and lies.
    TRUMP ๐Ÿš‚ ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚ ๐Ÿš‚๐Ÿš‚ ๐Ÿš‚ 2020

  17. Distraction, Distraction, Distraction,…. meanwhile, let's keep spraying the atmosphere with deadly chemical's, and nobody will be nun the wiser..๐Ÿ‘ฟ๐Ÿ’€

  18. UNBELIEVEABLE!! EVERYTHING THAT THE DIRTY DEMOCRATS TO THEY ACCUSE TRUMP OF DOING….OMG THE REAL TREASONOUS ACTIVITIES WILL BE SHOWN BUT THEY TWIST IT BECAUSE THE DIRTY PLAYERS ARE RUNNING SCARED….THE REAL RUSSIAN COLLUSION WAS URANIUM ONE SALE BY HILLARY AND HER CRONIES TO RUSSIA….THE DIRTY DOSSIER PAID FOR BY THE CLINTON CLAN…..THE MUELLER REPORT CONFIRMS THE REAL CRIMINALS AND LOOK HOW THESE FAKE MAINSTREAM MEDIA SPINS THE TRUTH….THESE FAKE NEWS STATIONS NEED TO BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THE LIES THEY SPEW ……WAIT TILL THE REAL TRUTH COMES OUT…BUT THESE DASDARDS WITLL CONTINUE TO LIE AND SPIN THE NARRATIVE AWAY FROM THE REAL TRAITORS OF THIS COUNTRY

  19. THIS WAS INDEED A FALSE WITCH HUNT TO TAKE DOWN A PRESIDENT THAT WAS WILLING TO EXPOSE THE DEEP CORRUPTION THAT HAS INFILTRATED THIS NATION SINCE THE DEEP STATE KILLED KENNEDY…..

  20. "Oh my God, this is terrible. This is the end of my presidency. I'm f—-d. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me."
    Hmmm. Sounds like they missed something.

  21. โ€œOne of the greatest memories of all timeโ€ Donald Trump on his memory.

    Yet canโ€™t remember anything lol

  22. Fake people , fake news, dancing all over the sleeping sheeple on the world stage, the new world order is coming.

  23. This whole ordeal should give all Americans pause as to how they use SOCIAL media.

    You are literally putting your life on the line by WILLINGLY giving up your LIFES info.

  24. As a minority registered independant, who voted for republicans for the first time in 2018, I do believe that the democrats are "beating a dead horse" with the trump investigation and report.

  25. One of the greatest problems in this country, and one of the greatest detriments to the lives of Americans and all resident Americans is the devolution of our safety into the hands of Government and private entities. This is what I mean: that Uber has to take extra precautionary measures to protect its customers instead of the customers following the precautionary measures already available to them is the devolution of our responsibilities as citizens regarding our safety. Pedestrian crossings, bike lanes, crosswalk signals are just a few of the ways in which we have devolved, resulting in a gap in our ability to think for ourselves.

  26. The dumb Dems declared war on President Trump and President Trump is winning well the stupid Dems are still grasping at straws.

    I would get any and all of my allies or aides to extinguish any and all bombs that are set in my direction.

    It seems as if the Dum Dems I like that evil snake that refuses to die.

  27. Poor NBC News,,,
    After investing two years of pushing this Russian Collusion Hoax only to watch it crash & burn.
    ~ NBC News;
    You are a disgrace to American Journalism & and enemy of our Republic.
    .

  28. 17:00 "…..police are saying they have found no link to terrorism….." The guy walked into Saint Patrick's Cathedral with gas cans, lighter fluid & lighters and they don't think he was planning an attack!?!? Wtf did they think he was going to do with all that!?!? Light some candles!?!? He was obviously going to set it on fire with people inside!!!!! Wtf are the NYPD smoking that they don't see that!?!?

  29. Hey, Hillbilly Bob, Joe Biden finally announced that he's running for the 2020 presidency. "Something about him made me feel uncomfortable." Those hypocritical young cows. Their accusations of President Joe Biden sexually violating them never had any substance whatsoever. They were transparent lies that didn't work. It's over with now for President Donald Skunk..uh..Trump. America's Glory will be restored๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  30. UNHINGED CONSPIRACY HOUR – Wake up and snap out of it people. There is no collusion and these TV channels are hijacking your mind against the SCIENCE of what was discovered. Use common sense and leave this network. LORD!

  31. Iโ€™ve been being told for years by Republicans that Bill Clinton was impeached because Congress initiated impeachment proceedings even though he was acquitted. According to Republicans he was still impeached so as long as Congress begins impeachment proceedings then Trump is impeached.

  32. Well as a former uber driver I'll tell you this I'm not asking for your name. My first week of driving some strange man tried to get in my car. Asking me my name but, refusing to give me his. He was not my psssenger & I took my keys & phone got out of the car & called the real passenger. Its not just about the passenger we as driver are in danger as well.

  33. Has there EVER been a President before that has been attacked the way President Trump has been attacked so consistently?? I doubt it!

  34. Doesnโ€™t anyone care that are votes donโ€™t matter? How is that not important? America many have fought and died for that one thing, the right for America to control their government! Will you let their sacrifice be in vain!

  35. not watching liberal tabloid tv,liberal lies propapganda tv like nbc,cbs,abc evening news..just wanted to see intro so i could see thier false corrupt angle on donald trump.the real crime and tampering with the election is the nbc,cbs,abc evening news along with the crooked democratic/liberal/socialist party all in co host together

  36. NBC sucks! The liberals will never be happy. They are some evil people. Good luck liberals….You elect a socialist…You'll regret it later. There's no such thing as free stuff!

  37. All bunch of of FOOL'S Republicans and Democrat's … Sick of both parties….. over and over and over again the same old story….. JOKE…All Fake News from both parties…..

  40. I was just reading thru the remarks. So great to see the American people are finally waking up! FAKE NEWS MEDIA IS DEAD

  41. Not surprised no Conspiracy would take someone smart to pull that off good thing that leaves the Trump men out on that loop!! It's not over either he goes down now or later will end. Oh happy day!!!! Can we charge story line for a while sick of the Trump channel 24/7.

  42. We already know that Barr has already corrupted justice in the past with Daddy Bush. And he is attempting to do it again. Barr is a disgrace.

  43. Mr Mueller followed protocol but never said there was no hiding the truth from the American people by our president.

  44. I'm really confused about just what constitutes "conspiracy". Multiple meetings with Russians with the express purpose of coordinating ways in which they could help in electing Trump seems to me to constitute conspiracy to collude, right? And then the excuse for all of the attempted acts of obstruction to that investigation is blamed on the fact that Trump was angry and frustrated, WHAT? Did I get that right or have I just gone mad all by myself?

  45. @ 4:59 um …BS…. He could have come to any conclusion he wanted to. Just because there's rules about charging a sitting president doesn't mean you can't come to a conclusion

  46. You cant indict someone for actions that he had the LEGAL authority to do! Your argument is ridiculous. Mueller can SAY whatever he wants but the LAW IS THE LAW! Trump could have fired Mueller and that STILL would not have been obstruction bc he had LEGAL AUTHORITY TO DO SO!

  47. I have a piece of advice for the mainstream media say you are sorry to half of the country and move on and you may win some of us back

  48. Help Me vote For Trump 2020. and AM PROUD OF MY PRESIDENT!!! because of this link and why am going to vote on him again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxiGIAA2dic
