7:03 am
finally robert mueller's work is nearly done. on friday a security officer handed over his final report toc notifying congress the special counsel has concluded his investigation of russian interference in the 2016 election and related matters. the contents of the report a tightly guarde >> i have no idea about the mueller report. >> reporter: and so the final act begins. for nearly two years an epic face-off, a president loudly proclaiming his innocence. >> the entire thing has been a witch-hunt, and there is no collusion. >> reporter: a legendary prosecutor and law man who has not spoken publicly in 22 months. the president relentlessly attacking the special counsel on twitter. according to "the new york times," railing against the investigation more than 1,000 times. robert mueller doing his talking only through charges filed in court. 37 indictments, among them those russians suspected of hacking
7:04 am
the clinton campaign and those who secretly waged a social media war aimed at sowing divisions among americans and there have been multiple guilty pleas involving some of the most power people in president trump's inner circle. some of his top political strategists and advisers now convicted and even longtime friends and family members caught up in the investigation. the special counsel's first major indictments shook washington. mueller going after two of the very top people in the campaign not named trump. campaign chairman paul manafort. >> paul manafort has done a fantastic job. >> reporter: and his former deputy campaign manager rick gates. >> mr. gates, any response to the charges, sir? >> reporter: manafort and gates charged and convicted of bank and tax fraud but also lying to investigators. in the process manafort
7:05 am
intelligence officer of campaign polling data. michael flynn, who famously chatted at the republican convention. >> lock her up, that's right. yeah, that's right. lock her up. >> reporter: flynn became trump's first national security adviser and also has the distinction of being the highest ranking member of the trump administration charged so far. >> mike flynn is a fine person. >> reporter: flynn pleading guilty to lying to the fbi and administration officials about his contacts with the russian ambassador. also a secret early target for mueller, the president's personal attorney of ten years, the fixer, who worked just down the hall from trump, michael cohen. >> i always liked michael, and he's a good person. >> reporter: cohen pleaded guilty to lying to congress about russia, and he admitted to fraud and campaign finance violations implicating trump in a separate plot to silence a porn star and former "playboy" playmate with hush money to bury alleged affairs. >> so, i just heard that they broke into the office of one of my personal attorneys, good man, and it's a disgraceful situation.
7:06 am
>> reporter: a relationship completely transformed. >> and i will do anything to protect mr. trump. >> reporter: the two men now man, and he is a cheat. >> he's a weak person and not a very smart person. >> reporter: the president's family also caught up in the investigation. mueller locked in on what critics have called suspicious contacts of trump associates with the kremlin including that infamous meeting at trump tower, new york, where a number of russians showed up promising dirt on hillary clinton. in attendance the president's son, don junior, son-in-law, jared kushner, and paul manafort. >> it was such a nothing there was nothing to tell. >> reporter: and there has been a parade of witnesses to a grand jury here in washington. many involving trump associates like friend and longtime political adviser roger stone who are being investigated for their possible ties to wikileaks which published damaging hacked emails stolen by the russians. stone now indicted and awaiting
7:07 am
trial accused of lying to congress. yet after all those witnesses and countless hours of investigation, not a single american so far has been directly charged with conspiring with the russians to undermine the election. and much of what mueller has found remains shrouded in secrecy, but now the key questions, what does mueller have to say about whether the trump campaign colluded with russia and perhaps now we finally get some answers about whether mueller believes the president tried to obstruct justice, tom. >> we wait to see and hear that. the attorney general has told congressional leaders he may brief them as early as this weekend, which seems to be a quick turnaround for a nearly two-year investigation. what does that tell us, if anything, and when can we expect the public to at least see portions of that report? >> that is a quick turnaround, tom. as you noted, he is going to provide a summary of mueller's key findings and has a pretty good idea what he wants to say about the bottom line conclusions of mueller's investigation. as for how much time it will
7:08 am
take to get a fuller accounting, our sources saying that may be many days if not weeks away, tom. >> thank you so much from washington. reaction pouring in swiftly overnight from members of congress making a bipartisan call for transparency and the release of the full findings. abc's senior national correspondent terry moran is at the white house with how the president and lawmakers are now responding to this long awaited report. terry, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, whit. the president is on vacation basically down in florida, a little r&r down at mar-a-lago but he and his allies are declaring victory and vindication this morning, perhaps prematurely, perhaps not. the democrats and others are clamoring for the full release of that report and the underlying evidence. they may run into some legal hurdles there and robert mueller is headed home. they'll move the furniture out of his office beginning next week and he is leaving this job the way he performed it, without a word. all eyes are now on attorney general william barr, because he is the person who will now decide how much of robert
7:09 am
mueller's report is made public. >> it is imperative for mr. barr to make the full report public and provide its underlying documentation and findings to congress. >> reporter: lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are clamoring for full disclosure. within minutes after the attorney general's announcement of the delivery of the mueller report, a blizzard of statements and tweets and then this stunning statement by attorney general barr in a letter to congress. i am reviewing the report and anticipate that i may be in a position to advise you of the special counsel's principal conclusions as soon as this weekend. at barr's confirmation hearing democrats pressured him for maximum disclosure. >> i am going to make as much information available as i can consistent with the rules and regulations that are part of the special counsel regulations. >> reporter: some top democrats are calling for mueller to testify in person before congress about his findings. >> if the justice department doesn't release the whole report or tries to keep parts of it
7:10 am
subpoena the parts of the report. >> reporter: on the other side of the aisle, republicans so content that this probe has finally come to an end. former senate judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley writing, "throughout this prolonged investigation which cost tens of millions in taxpayer dollars and included aggressive surveillance tools, we still haven't seen any evidence of collusion." and the president who has attacked, insulted and sought to undermine robert mueller for the last 22 months -- >> the entire thing has been a witch-hunt. >> they won't find any collusion. it doesn't exist. >> there was no collusion, there was no obstruction, there was no nothing. >> reporter: -- now says he wants the public to see the full report. >> let it come out, let people see it. that's up to the attorney general. >> and terry moran back now live with us from the white house. terry, this push now to release mueller's report to the public is also quickly becoming a big issue on the campaign trail. >> reporter: it sure has, whit.
7:11 am
you know, there are so many democrats running for president, but they are unanimous on this. they want trency.they are cmong release, some for that underlying evidence, but in a sense the closure in this report and depending on what attorney general barr says is in it we'll find out this weekend might be good for democrats. a lot of them are dreaming big policies, big ideas for the country. they need to get those to the voters, and if they get tied up in something that happened back in 2016, that might actually hamper. but right now they are unanimous. release the report. transparency for the voters. guys. >> in the near few tear we will be hearing about it, terry, thanks. let's bring in our chief legal analyst, dan abrams, right now. dan, what we do know is that there will be no more indictments. what does that mean for the president specifically? >> it means a huge sigh of relief for those around the president. i mean, don junior, jared kushner, there have been all these discussions, et cetera, huge sigh of relief for all of them. with regard to the president, we don't know exactly what it means. one of two options, number one,
7:12 am
it could mean that there simply wasn't evidence to charge him with any crime. either obstruction of justice or any kind of collusion crime or, number two, and this is why the democrats want to see more about the report, was there a decision made we can't indict a sitting president and, therefore, no matter what we have, it's irrelevant. that's the critical question we don't know the answer to, which one of those two things was it. >> now, the special counsel's office never directly interviewed the president. his legal team only allowed a questionnaire. but his troubles are far from over because we know the southern district of new york is also investigating matters connected to the president. >> right, there are a number of local u.s. attorneys, federal prosecutors around the country who are continuing to investigate issues that came out of the special counsel investigation. but, remember, all of those offices ultimately report to one person, the attorney general, william barr. so if there's going to be any high-profile indictment at this point, barr would have to sign off on it. the special counsel had more independence than do these
7:13 am
various local u.s. attorneys, so i think those who are sort of counting on big things coming out of these local u.s. attorneys offices may end up getting disappointed. >> real quick, no chance that that office holds this until the next administration comes in? >> no, but they could decide that there are certain crimes that have been committed that a sitting president can't be charged with, but if he's not president, then he could be charged with. that's the sort of still that still could potentially be on the table. >> dan, thanks for that. tom, joining us now from texas is abc news political analyst, matthew dowd. matthew, great to have you. it's been -- you know, we've been discussing this, the mueller report on this show almost two years now. we're still waiting to see exactly what's in it. but one of the early headlines, no new indictments here. if the president is not directly implicated in any collusion or conspiracy, politically is this a win for trump, and what are the risks for democrats as they plow forward with their investigations? >> well, whit, as i said yesterday, i actually think this
7:14 am
is firmer ground for the president since he's been shadow boxing basically this report for two years. almost his entire presidency, but i think it's way too early for them to celebrate politically. speaking of a boxing match, it's like celebrating you didn't get knocked out even though you've lost every round up until now, and so i think it's better news for the president, it's not as bad as they thought, but there's still a whole bunch of things ahead, and now we're entered into a major political fight. >> let's talk more of that because as we mentioned, the democrats are calling for transparency and the release of the entire mueller report. that decision in the hands of the new ag, attorney general, william barr. the white house is already preparing to claim executive privilege to keep some of this information secret. how much of a political fight still lies ahead? >> well, it's going to be a major fight, and obviously it's going to all be over what portions of the mueller report and how much of it get released to the public. if i were giving advice to the
7:15 am
president and his team, i would say, the more you can encourage to be put out, the better, because if it's good news, then you should have no reluctance about putting it out. if it's bad news, ultimately bad news always comes out, and you're much better off it coming out quickly and fully at the beginning instead of trickling out in the end, so if i were the president's strategist, i'd want full transparency on this, get it out even if there's things in the report that are very concerning. >> many people have been calling this the end of the beginning, so we'll see how it all plays out. matthew dowd from texas, always a pleasure. great to hear from you. >> so that report wrapping up, but obviously still a lot that will be happening. >> exactly. >> we could get new information any moment once they brief congressional leaders so we'll be watching that. we should also mention abc news coverage, if anything comes out throughout the day, we'll break in. and, tom, you'll have much more on "wor . >> we definitely will. now to breaking news in syria. the syrian democratic forces liberating the last isis stronghold putting an end to the
7:16 am
so-called caliphate. the islamic state group declared it back in 2014. at its height isis controlled a huge stretch of territory across most of syria and parts of neighboring iraq. well, back here at home to that chemical plant fire in texas that's been raising concerns about air quality for days. the state attorney general filing a lawsuit as that fire flared up again. abc's alex perez is on the scene in houston with the latest. alex, good morning. >> reporter: hey, good morning, janai. it has been a nerve-racking week for people who live around this chemical plant. every time they think authorities have things under control, there's another flare-up. authorities this morning closely monitoring tanks at this chemical plant in deer park, texas, after this serious fle-ui >>t pes as though the product that has leaked out of the itc plant is now in the ditch and that too is on fire. >> reporter: two of the tanks filled with components to make gasoline, nail polish remover and glue reigniting sending
7:17 am
plumes of dangerous dark smoke into the air. >> the ditch that all of the chemicals and the foam that was released in the past 24 hours, that is where the second plume of smoke appears to be coming from. >> reporter: it's the third flare-up since wednesday when authorities extinguished the blaze after it burned for four days. a spokeswoman for itc, the company that owns the plant, issuing a tearful apology. >> we will make this right. we will fix it, and we will make it right. >> reporter: authorities this weekend working to empty some 20,000 barrels of liquid from a charred tank that leaked benzene into the air and led to a temporary shelter in place order. the chemical linked to cancer. >> it's kind of a little bit frightening just because you don't know what's going in the air even though they say it's not harmful. >> reporter: and now the texas attorney general filing a lawsuit against itc for violating the state's clean air act. a number of residents have also
7:18 am
filed lawsuits against the company. the exact cause of the initial fire still under investigation. whit. >> all right, alex perez for us in houston. thank you so much. we appreciate it. we do want to turn to the weather now. rob marciano is here. some parts of the country dealing with severe flooding. >> yeah, and we've got more rain coming into that area, and this is just the first bout. we'll have more flooding as you can imagine as we go deeper into spring. let's get to st. joseph, missouri, where the river out and over its banks cresting now but record stage there. so they do not want to see more water and unfortunately they'll see a little bit of that. you couple that with a little bit further north we got melting ice and ice jams that could exacerbate some of the flooding across the minnesota river there in southwest minnesota, so this is an ongoing situation, as well. look at all these flood alerts across missouri and the mississippi rivers and their tributaries. kansas city, you're going to get a crest today although that city fairly protected for this round but more rain with embedded strong storms, north of dallas, oklahoma city. wichita. this getting into the flooded
7:19 am
areas. rainfall should be held down hopefully enough to not really make those rivers rise any more but strong storms potentially today and then again i think tomorrow as this system pushing off towards the east. good saturday morning. i'm lisa argen. the rain has ended for a little bit in the north bay. still a few lingering showers outside but we'll be partly cloudy to mostly sunny today. another dry day on tap, although clouds will increase for your sunday. then rain arrives late sunday night into monday for our next storm. it's 63 later on this afternoon in fremont and san jose. upper 50s at the coast. 62 in napa. the accuweather seven-day forecast, a break winds are howling in the northeast from an exiting storm. that plus a little sports. march madness. sports and weather. maybe some traffic as well. we'll see. later on in the next half hour. >> it's good to have you back on weekends, rob.
7:20 am
it's one thing to play hooky on "weekend "gma"" but tom over here was a wreck when you missed "world news." >> tom and i have a special relationship. >> i'm glad we facetimed. >> thanks, rob. >> all right, rob. now to the latest in the investigation into boeing's new max jets after news that some were being flown actually without important safety features that cost extra. abc news has learned that boeing plans to issue a software update that is expected to be certified by the faa early next week. in the meantime, the company is inviting airlines to its factory to start going over training. american airlines pilots are expected to test the updates in simulators very soon. whit. transitioning here talking about sports, lebron james has ended his first season as a itha championship ring. the lakers were officially eliminated from the playoffs friday night losing to the brooklyn nets, 11-106.
7:21 am
king james had 25 points, 14 assists but it wasn't enough. this is the sixth straight year they failed to make it to the playoffs, but many were hoping james would help bring that streak to an end. break the streak. the three-time champ called it a tough season for the suspensions and the injuries saying, quote, it's not what we signed up for. first time lebron is missing the playoffs in 14 years. other basketball news coming up, though, we'll also have the latest on march madness and zion williamson's big night. that guy is a beast. >> first time in 14 years, that means there are lebron fans that have never lived through the playoffs without him being in it. >> it's great. it sets up the comeback. it sets up next year and zion will probably be there too. >> playoffs are a promise to anyone, you got to come out and work and i'm already ready to get back to work. >> there you go. laker fans will be happy to hear that. also this morning, congressional democrats gearing up for a possible fight over the mueller report. we'll have a report from mar-a-lago where president trump is spending the weekend. also ahead, the white police officer on trial in the shooting death of an unarmed black teen
