time to take stock of political stories shaping our world. >> the special counsel report, robert mueller turned it over two weeks agond the first leaks from inside his team are intensifying the pressure on attorney general will bam yiam >> new revelations raise new security concerns. joe biden is back and clearly ming a run for it. >> chuck todd is nbc news political director and moderator of "meet the press". let's start with the leaks or complaints that the attorney general underplayed some significant aspects of the mueller report. where do you see this going? >> here's my initial complaint about this whole episode. we still have not seen the complete set of the mueller report. bill barr did not share one and none of these reports shared one. my concern abo r theseorts about mueller's team is these are people who have talked to people who have talked to
6:17 pm
iople. for whs worth. bill barr has made his own f cision about obstruction justice without any of us getting to read anything. the whole thing feels as if none of us know the full story. i think it puts aus you wius al weird position. bi barr put us in this position. he could have easily done this. mueller has no recommendation of additional criminal charges. as soon as iel canse more of the report, i will. period. but when he made the decision to make his own decision about obstruction, he inserts himself to out anybody being able see it and i think this is viously where we're at. i don't think we're going to see the full mueller report. >> >> for the entire calendar year. i'm not going toav say ever. i joked that it could be n oved into a warehouse mexico, because if you look at it, it will burn your eyes and you'll melt. but i actually think most of this caldar year is going to be a fight over how much me of
6:18 pm
e report we get to see which i do think sometime maybeate next week or the following week we get the barr version. i think barr has lost whatever credibility he might have had with democrats on capitol hil the fight is going to be over getting us more of the document, not over what it said. >> all this talk aboutng redac the information, why didn't the mueller team put out aedacted version in addition to the other one? >> the implication is they did. the implication is this report was written in such a way where the first parts of every sort of chapter of the repor were releasable parts of thet. rep that apparently is part of this criticism. barr said hey, we did this for you. we made this -- maybe we'll find that out, that that was done in such a way. that is one of the allegations. that may, mueller actually did do wha you're asking and barr just ignored it. >> why arera weing our feet?
6:19 pm
>> well, i have an idea of why we're dragging our feet. it'sorking out pretty well for one person, isn't it? i don't think that's a coincidence. >> testimony from a white house whistle blower confirms nbc news shreporting jared r's top security clearance was denied, then overturned. then the incidt dow at mar-a-lago where a chinese itizen tried to get on to the property. did get on to the property. ising concerns about espionage, clumsy though it may have been. is this a time to sound alarm bells? >> the alarmndells s before he took office. there's a lot of concern about how loose mar-a-lago was. all it takes is $200,000 and you can ghe in anytime you want. >> and then you bring your friends. >> and bring your friends as guests and you have access to the president. there haseen a giant security loophole in just that, the fact that you can essentially pay your way in.
6:20 pm
that is -- on the kushner front, i think that as much as democrats want to make a lot of hay of this, it's the president's right to give a clearance to anybody he wants. that's the power of the press.ent of the united sta what i do think this will eventually lead to is some sor of tightening of some form of nepotism laws. you canno have family members. you just introduce the potential for ,corruptibili the potential for national security complications. if you have family -- imean, you cannot have a president put himself in a position where he has to choose between family and the nation. so i do wonder, while i don't think much can be done, think democrats are focussed on the wrong issue. they want to embarrass kushner and find out what it is. i think they should look at the big picture and say this shouldn't have ever happened, should we change o laws to say family members, you consistency have them in positions of responsibility like this.
6:21 pm
>> joe biden on the hot seat all week as women say he made them uncomfortable. how do you sng that pla out? >> well, i think it's been interen'ing to watch joe bi response to it. he wants to acknowledge that he knows he's got to change his ways and he gets it, doesn't want to apologize for it. he made that clear today. i'm not apologizing for being who i am. the more significant thing that happened is joe biden declared war on the progressive left. he today in that -- i think this whole issue is wrapped up in the larger debate about whether joe biden is 21st ctury enough for the democratic party. this is just one but it's symbolic, all of it a deriff tiff of the same issue. it was interesting to see him today draw a very bright line
6:22 pm
between the left -- he called progressives. he said don't call me a pr tressive. that socialist. he drew a very bright line i'll be fascinated to see h this new left responds. >> okay. we'll all be watching. chuck's guests this week democratic presidential candidate peed buttigieg andan republenator mitt romney of utah. "meet the g.press" sunday morn >> you know how long i've been practicing that? bring it on. >> i don't need mayor pete now. i've got you. >> thank you, chuck. i knew that wasoming eventually. >> you both nailed it. coming up, a community fixture closing up shop and putting customers in tears. when we come back at 6:00, why it's now t end of an era for behnke's nursery. >> my kids have come here for christmas. it's the onlyursery they know.
