6:15 pm
in t senate efforts to shore up election security seem to be meeting a brick wall in the form of majority leader mitch >>mcconnell. nd the president's attacks on a group of freshmen lawmakers may not have had the effect he wanted, potentially unitg the democratic party, and no more mr. nice guy. joe' biden says h not going to be as polite as -- we're just days away nowfrom another presidential debate. >> joining to us help digest all of this information nbc news political director ander modor of "meet the press" chuck todd. let's start with the mueller testimony on -- on wednesday. he did refute the president's claim that his report exonerated him. >> yeah. >> but it didn't -- doesn't seem to have moved anybody's opinion oneheway or anot on the mueller report. what do democrats do from here? they had high hopes for that. it's always been another moment, okay. wait until the report is
6:16 pm
complete, until we hear from him. always these other moments. i do think that somehow democrats were manleyically hoping he would come in and say i wrote this reportthisay for you to continue the investigation. they wanted to hear him say that, and there was no way he decided i'm not going to be serving as a political -- in his mind he thought that was too political of a decision. we wonders is he being overly cautious? i think we're going to back seat drive how that was done. did they go in the wrong order and all this stuff. you know, we never -- they never presented to the publiwhat we did when we first got the initial mueller report, the different time line and there were ways to animate this report and ithink that they didn't do that. let's set all that aside. here's what is going on today when you saw pelosi's comments and nadler's comment. i think pelosi is trying to a little more time and breathing space and so is nadler. we may get to the point where we never see an artle of
6:17 pm
impeachment but do see a formalized impeachment inquiry. it does look like in order to do the oversight they want to do they may need the power of an the power inquiry, of a grand jury to get this ieormation. fe like that's the direction that they are going and politically a guy like jerry nad er feeling some heatfrom the left in his own district, i think that's where this whole thing is going t p wait a minute, there's no penalty for him opening an inquiry, and i think ultimately speaker pelosi will okay that. >> as we mentioned earlier, thep rlican-led intel committee put out a report outlining extensive election interference on the part of the russians. mitch mcconnell, he's actually blocking that to shore up security for the next election. is that miscalculation on his part? >> bythe way, imagine if the senate intel commit he release that had report onu tday?
6:18 pm
in right. >> the day before mueller which would have helped perhaps -- you're sitting there going oh, you guys knew -- there's no way you didn't know you were goingr to lease a report on thursday. do i thinkt would have added to the larger public understanding. instead, the senate re rt is being overshadowed. >> it is alarming. >> first of all, it's ridiculously redacted, way ov redamaged, and it is -- it is obscenely overredacted in what is not in there, but what is in there is alarming and how tuch infiltion the russians did do basically in all 50 states in some form or another so after you read this report it makes it looks like what mcconnell is doing as more of a head scratcher unless he's worried whatever bipartisan bill passes and then it leaves republicans who roared for it, you got to remember why is mcconnell notging this out?
6:19 pm
not bringing it up -- not going to bring up any bill thathe knows willt pass tha he doesn't know that trump will gn. they are fearful politically and mcconnell is up forre-election in a red state so hca n't tick off trump too badly. ies that the only raonale that kes sense to me here to explain why that is. this is a no-brainer politically. he's sitting here going democrats are playing poll with this. you know the easiest way to make the democrats stop playing i politics, puton the floor and it becomes a bipartisan bill. you know the way this town is, that's what you've got to the ask yourself. trump doesn't even want an easy bipartisan layup. he doesn't want this that badly? that to me should raise -- >> and pying games with the -- with the safety of our elections. >> let's be reali, anything that they ss now it's as if it's going to help -- be implemented by 2020. i'm a little skeptical. >> yeah. >> all this dillydallyingas t us in a -- >> here we are.
6:20 pm
>> the -- the last week and for days it seems we were talking about the president's attacks against the squad and alexandri ocasio-corteeting with nancy pelosi today. is this going to die down? what do you think? >> i -- i think i think it's overexaggerated on the left because the right is obsessed story.ying to make it a i think, look, at the end of the door, there's one cable channel that wants to make her the facec of the dtic party so that stuff is going to continue and there are other democrats getting defensivebout it. i think you'll continue to see attempts to drive wedges between aoc, because, you know, republicans don't want to have to talk to trump so it's a lot easier to do them so i think it ll be interesting to see if this -- if this cease-fire lasts. it will last untilemocratic primary season happens, and you start seeing those, and then i think some of this could come back a little bit, but i think
6:21 pm
for the mo part let the intra-party fightg stay to the presidential campaign. there's enough in. >> and speaking of primary season, another round of debates next week. what are you watching for, chuck, and should we aoticipate her candidates to drop out aftw next eek? >> i will say this. when people say who are the high four, biden and if your name is not biden, sanders, warren or buttigieg, you don't know if you're going to make it past labor day, so w have 15 others, five candidates i think will make it to the next -- to labor day. these other 15 may not. what kind of desperation, does that create au hnger games-like atmosphere among the 15? >> this debate is going to beon thing. how does biden handle incoming this time because he is going to get it more than kamala harris. by the way, she's the one person i'm not convinced will go after biden this time. i tink there there's a chance --
6:22 pm
>> she already did it. you don't want to keep doing it looking like that's your oy move but i think everybody else is going to do it for sure, booker, castro, on that stage. is he wobbly again or does he show some bigger in his defensea it's real opportunity for biden. look how resilient his poll numbers have b n five weeks what has been mediocre to bad press. he's still in this shape now, what if he has a good debate? >> that's a good point. >> all right. >> more to come. thank you, chuck, and as always you can see chuck this sunday on "meet the press" starting at 10:30 right here on nbc 4. >> time to get to the nats game. >> nats/dodgers, best weekend of the year for me. >> thank you, chuck. >> thanks, chuck. still to come at 6:00, a a virginin owns up to a little presidentl fake-out. hoe a bogus presidential seal wound up behind president trump thiseek. >> healthy haskins. i'm sherree burruss at redskins
