election. but other vexes are still on going. we get the latest from nbc news jennifer johnson in washington. >> reporter: president trump declaring victory. >> it was a complete and total exoneration. it is a shame that our country had to go through this. to be honest, it is a shame that your president has had to go through. >> reporter: attorney general barr released a summary of the mueller investigation. mueller didn't draw an conclusion one way or another whether the president obstructed justice. the investigation did not establish interference. but republicans say that won't stop democrats from trying to bring down the president. >> they thought this report was going to president on. that is not seemingly going to happen. now now they have to figure a
way around that. >> reporter: there are also other ongoing probes that may involve the president and his family members. >> the special council is not bringing criminal indictments for collusion. there are other investigations going on. and they may or may not. >> reporter: democrats calling for full disclosure of mueller ears report. and now one of president trump's lawyers says the white house will not ask for a copy of mueller's full report. jennifer johnson nbc news washington. our nbc bay area politically analyst larry gers season is he. how important to see the entire report? >> very important. two things. everything is squished down so a lot is left out. the thinking of the ag also.
it is his interpretation. in many things they put t lap a take it from here. you decide what happens with the obstruction issue. so barr along with rosen stein went ahead and made the decision. well we don't see information for or against. can't decide. so what we have right now is likes a precis if you will. and that is not enough to satisfy anyone. and anyone in the 420-0 vote in the house said we want to see the entire report. one way or another you are going see the a lot more if not the entire report. >> what we've gotten so far, are you surprised any gig that's come out? >> i'm a little surprised mueller went ahead and gave so much authority to the attorney general. now special council rules are different this time around than they have been in the past. perhaps that is part of it. but clearly the attorney general had a good deal of discretion here. once that discretion is kicked in place we have that wall, if you will, between what the real issue, perhaps, and what the attorney general is saying. we don't know yet which gets
back to we. we need to see everything. and i think even the republicans want to see everything. >> there a winner in all this? i'm hearing it leaves room for both sides to declare a victory. certainly the president was just out on the lawn in front of the white house saying america is the greatest country in the world. he feels great. complete and total exoneration. >> objectively speaking off the give this round to the president. that is not going make a lot of people happy but the president wins this round. if they say we don't have the goods. the other say can say maybe we'll have them later but we don't have them now. that puts the president on higher ground. he can say there is no collusion. you know that story. you can say they found nothing about the russians. let's go on. and so for that reason it is not that the democrats are going change their minds or the republicans are going to change their minds. but it is that third of the nation, the independent whose have been wondering what's going on are president than anything else because that is how this thing ok this point. so take it one step further
there are more investigations out there. at least five going on. southern district of new york. eastern district of virginia. district of columbia. the states of new york and new jersey. all of these guys are working their own investigations swhosmt knows what else may be found. democrats are going play that card. as far as the republicans are concerned, eh, that's tomorrow's news. >> where does this leave speaker pelosi? she's in charge of the democrat-controlled house. what does she do next? what do they do next? >> to her credit she really worked hard against kind of defeat. say well we dot to have overwhelming evidence. that allows the house to go on with the investigations. that is within their purview. investigation and appropriations are the two most important elements of what the house of representatives must do. so they will go on. so it puts her in a sat,mocratsu impeachment it. will, saying impeachment, pulls tmit.
and t thank you as always for your hse nancy pelosi and senate democratic leader chuckdjoi cou mueller's report does not exonerate the president on a charge of serious as obstruction of jussie demonstrates how urgent the it is the full report be made public without any further delay. senator bernie sanders brought his campaign to san francisco today. he also addressed the mueller report. christie smith joins us live to talk about that. >> it was certainly a friendly and enthusiastic crowd out here in san francisco today to see senator bernie sander and yes he did touch on familiar themes from 2016 but he also said of that report that a
didn't good enough. people started linealiing up ea this morning to see him speak. it was one stop in california where he's making a strong push in a crowded democratic field. where a candidate places is important in terms of delegates and of course the california primary is pushed up for response to the summary. >> what i know is that it is a summary of the report. well i don't want a summary of the report. i want the whole damn report. because nobody, especially this president is above the law. >> reporter: he also talked about how ha ideas that he was pushing in 2016 have now been accepted by the majority of the
american people. ce t's how he sees it. jus reform, medicare, immigration. boosting social security benefits. sanders spoke for about an hour again with a very enthusiastic crowd. we will have a full report on what he had to say coming up tonight at 5k. live in san francisco. christie smith northbound bay area news. a new poll shows former vice president joe biden beating president trump in the 2020 election and by 7 percentage points. 47% of registered voters say they would choose biden. and he's not officially announced yet. the pool also shows bernie sanders beating the president as well. by a smaller number, 44-41%. experts say take it with a grain of salt. e we all saw how the misleading polls were leading up to the 2016 election.
