4:33 pm
walk. because on saturday morning, we thought that north of thest ct would be four-to-eight inches. what happened? the area got ad widespr six-to-ten inches of snow with a sweet spot setting up i washington. northern prince george, loudoun and fairfaxun es. so the take away. the sweet spot was north, not south. this was a hig impact event. a two loaf bread event. m all thee reason, pat, leon, to monitor your weather forecast daily. especially for the upcoming weekend. >> thanks, amelia. now, let's get back to those grueling q stions about the president and russia after two bombshell reports over the weekend. on friday the "new york times" reported the fing of james comey triggered an fbi investigation into whether the president was working t advance russia interests and not the u.s. then on saturday "the washington post reported the president work to hide the

4:35 pm
vladimir putin and him not legislate evidence or notes or readouts from thoseo meetings to either his staff or the congress at all. today the president saidkihose of meetings happen all the time. no big dealo whatu make of that? is there anything congress can get to anying thatappened in these moteings? >> reporter: well the president is protected by executive privilege. national security could upend those privileges. congress could subpoena and the ent told his interpreter not to keep their notes from the meetings that he had with president putin and instead to make it completely confidential. cthat's somethinggress could potentially act upon. but it's not clear again if executive privilege could protect those meetings. >> this stuff gets more and moin resting as we go along, thank you so much. appreciate that. >> thankou. nb news will be working the latest developments on this all day long. they will hav complete coverage on nbc nightly news at 7:00
