6:28 pm
6:29 pm
president trump told his former attorney to lie to congress about his busi right now at 6:30, an explosive new report claims that president trump told his former attorney to lie to congress about his business deal in
6:30 pm
russia. the white house is now calling that man behind the report a liar. now, if it's true, it means the president committed a crime. that is a big if. but this isn't just a he said/he said. there may be some proof. here is nbc's tracie potts with more. >> the most direct allegation yet that president trump may have committed a crime. buzzfeed reports the president told his former attorney michael cohen to lie to congress about the timing of negotiations to build a trump tower in moscow. nbc has not confirmed that report. buzzfeed's source, two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. >> if he told michael cohen to commit perjury, then certainly that's going to go into the whole discussion we have about whether or not he, the president, should continue in the office. >> cohen is lying to reduce his jail time, the president tweets.
6:31 pm
categorically false, his attorney says. >> i'm not going to give any credence or credibility to michael coen who is a convicted felon and an admitted liar. it is just ridiculous. >> it is not just cohen's word. buzzfeed reports special counsel robert mueller has proof. >> e-mails. text messages. collateral views , interviews o others and presented it to michael cohen and said we know what you did, and michael cohen apparently said yes, i lied at the direction of donald trump. >> buzzfeed says donald trump's children ivanka and donald trump jr. got regular updates on the deal. >> their involvement on the plan, the negotiations is much deeper than they publicly acknowledged. >> cohen is set to testify before the house oversight committee on february 7. >> after hours tonight, the special counsel's office has issued a rare statement, denouncing the buzzfeed story, saying its description of specific statements to their office, its characterization of documents, and testimony, are
6:32 pm
not accurate. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. okay, let's bring in our political analyst, larry gersten now. larry, your turn to try to connect the dots here for us. let's put this together. how does this alleged lie by cohen connect to the mueller investigation, and then connect to this whole russia interference with the campaign? >> it's really important to ask that question because we have to get back to what mueller is all about. remember, so long ago, it seems, he was tasked with looking into all of the facts relating to the 2016 presidential election with respect to russia perhaps getting involved. also, at the same time, at that same time, he was given additional responsibility of looking into anything else that might be related. now, fast forward. and we look into what happened with cohen. michael cohen testifying. lying now, we hear, about a deal, potentially, in moscow, okay? well, if trump has deals with
6:33 pm
the russians, is it possible that those deals might have been responsible for the way he's behaving? that's the big question. that's how all of this could fit in, if what we've heard from buzzfeed is true. >> and that is the question. how accurate is the buzzfeed article? we just heard tracie potts talk about that, that maybe mueller is backing off, saying there may be some inaccuracies, how do we know how reliable it is? >> we have to look at the pedigree of buzzfeed. we know this much. that buzzfeed was out front when it comes to the steel dossier. none of it has been proven wrong. all of it hasn't been corroborated but not wrong at all. most of it has been dead on. >> we talked about that, we haven't talked about that in a long time. >> way ahead of everybody else about trump and the russians. secondly buzzfeed was way out in front on the idea of trump going to moscow, meeting with the russians. that was way back in may. third thing is, look at the people who wrote it. richard corbier, the lead author
6:34 pm
on this, referred a pulitzer prize, in 2016, you put that all together and you're looking at a very responsible outlet. as far as what mr. mueller said today, or his spokesperson, we don't know exactly what part or parts might be wrong, but if you listen to buzzfeed and if you look at their record, there may be a whole lot that's right. >> okay, so now what do the democrats do now? and even more important, what do the republicans do with this information? >> republicans first, okay? they've got themselves a handful. because to the extent that this is true, they've put themselves lock step with trump and you saw lindsey graham back off on this, when he asked those direct questions, well, if somebody was given bad information, or told to lie by the president, would that be wrong, would that be a criminal? and william barr said yes. so you almost wonder whether lindsey graham knew something. now, as far as the democrats go, this is a tough one. they're towing a very fine line here. on the one hand, so many of them
6:35 pm
want to jump in. but you know what, if you jump in, you only get one shot. one shot. and the republicans learned that when they tried to go after clinton. it back-fired terribly on them. so you better have all your ducks in a row. so rather than jumping in, nancy pelosi is like pulling on the reins to hold him in, you guys, let's go through the hearing, let's see what mueller says, and then we can always go forward, but not yet, as far as she is concerned, so yes, it is a difficult time for both the republicans and the democrats, and moreso, it is a difficult time right now for the president, most so, it is a difficult time for us in the nation. >> it is a saga. ability saga continues. thank you very much, for your insight. now we have an entire page dedicated to the trump presidency on our web site. go to nbc bay we're updating our site 24/7. the white house denies it leaked house speaker nancy pelosi's plan to take commercial flights to afghanistan yesterday. congressman pelosi and president trump are at an impasse over the partial government shutdown
6:36 pm
entering the fourth week. with negotiations broken off, she was set to visit nato leaders and u.s. troops in afghanistan yesterday. after the president grounded her military plane at the last minute, the delegation booked commercial flights. but the state department warned them to cancel. >> you never give advanced notice of going into a battle area. you just never do. perhaps the president's inexperienced, didn't have him understand that protocol. >> do you view this as retaliation about your letter of the state of the union? >> i would hope not. i don't think the president would be that petty. do you? >> today marks the 28th day of the government shutdown. federal workers protested across the country including here in the bay area. these are workers at the honolulu airport. now as the shutdown fallout continue, agencies aren't bay area and the country continue to step up. the alameda county community food bank dropped off a delivery to tsa agents at the airport and set up donation bins at the
6:37 pm
security screening area and spirits remain high among workers because of an outpouring of support. >> the response has been overwhelming. we're getting phone calls all the time from passengers who want to know what they can do to help. we're getting phone calls and communications from our airline partners. >> the airport has set up a temporary pantry in the tsa break room for donated food. the demand is high. the food bank plans to continue deliveries as long as there is a need. now pay pal says it will offer cash advances to federal employees impacted by the shutdown. the san jose-based company says those workers can get a credit line up to $500, interest free loans and the program will last until the government reopens. several banks and credit unions that cater to those workers are also getting ready to offer financial assistance. plus, scientists are talking about a strange signal from space. they're not quite sure what it is. but it has some people thinking about extra terrestrials. our technology reporter scott mcgrew has been looking into that for us. >> reporter: so this is not as
6:38 pm
crazy as it sounds. there is a very serious effort by very serious scientists, to search the skies for just such a signal. the signal they got is called a fast radio burst, and it's most likely from some kind of a natural phenomenon but at this point, they can't explain it. >> nobody knows what fast radio bursts are. you know, astronomers are pretty unimaginative when it comes to naming things so fast radio burst, is fast, it is radio, and it is burst, so it sounds like a slide whistle. very quick one. like that. >> we will take you inside the effort to sort out space signals from space noise, on our sunday morning show, press here, and we will talk about what it takes to get into an ivy league school. here's a surprise. you don't need perfect grades. so students, make your parents watch. this sunday morning, at 9:00 a.m. right after "meet the press." we'll see you then. >> thank you, scott. out of class for the day. the reason oakland teachers staged a one-day sickout. but to
