and we come on the air with a live look at the white house on this historic dayas in wngton. hours after the release of the redacted special counsel report, president trump is getting ready to leave town headed to his mar-a-lago club in florida for the weekend. >> that special counsel report alis the t of the town and it has been the subject with more than just a little spin. >> let's get radio to the president's no collusion claim. mueller's report is not quite as definitive. he write, ote, while the investigation identified numerous links between individuals with ties to the russian government and individuals associated with the trump campaign, the evidence was not sufficient to charge that any member of the trump campaign conspired or w coordinatedith representatives of the russian government to interfere in the 16 election. >> so we are kicking off three hours of team coverage digging through hundreds of pages to bring you critical details directly from the report. blayne alexander starts us off.
blayne. >> reporter: well, pat and erika, 448 pages. there were some pages completely redacted. there is still plenty to read thatheds new light on what the specia counsel found. nearly two years in the making, robert mueller's russia report is final with redactions. when trump learned mulleller ha been appointed, oh my god, this is terrible. this is the understand of myid prescy. he details several examples of potential obstruck of justice including the firing of fbi director james comey andne o instance where the presidented direct then white house lawyer don mcgahn to order mueller's firing. mcgahn refused. e people around him declined
tory out orders but that does tt exonerate him if we had confidencet the president clearly did not commit obstruck of justice, we would so state. still president trump declaring victory. i'm having a good day too. no collusion. no obstruction. mueller found no criminal conspiracy between the trump campaign a russia. something highlighted today by attorney general william barr echoing a frequent phrase on the president. s he said from the beginning, there was, in fact, no collusion. >> that not sitting well with democrats. also upset the president's lawyers got a look at the report earlier this week, days before congress. >> the special cnsel made clear he did not exonerate the president and the responsibility now fls to congress to hold the president accountable for his actions. >> strengthening their call to see the full report without redactions. barr will testify before congress early next month, but intensifyinday are
their calls to hear from the special counsel himself. when he was asked during his news conference, barr said that he had noblem with mueller testifying. pat and erika. >> our team coverage continues with nbc national security and intelligence reporter ken dilanian. ou he's been pouring thr the pages of this report taking a closer look at what's included and equally important what's not. >> so we'll start with the decision, rather, not to support the president. mueller writes they found the president's written resnses inadequate. ken? >> yeah. but it's pretty much what we had expected before we saw the report which is that mueller in the understand decided he did not wanto risk lengthy delay of delivering the results of the investigation if trump fought him all the way tore the supme court which he expected would happen. so he decided while he had the authority to subpoena the president and try to get his testimony before the grand jury, he didn't want to go thls route. he a felt he had a lot of
information about trump's mindset from other witnesses, but that's going to leave open the question of question of how can you really know what was in the president's mind if you haven't sat in front of him and asked him these he took about why these steps that look potentlly obstructed. >> and on that note, on the issue of obstruction, the special counsel laid out several ways in which it appears the president did try to interfere, often in public. the report found that many of the peoplen'round him did follow through with his request, so what does it mean if it appears he intended to obstruct him?hat someone stopp >> well, this is really the most dramatic revelation of the day. it's very clear that the mueller team found evidence ofru obstion of justice. and one of the reasons they decided not to make a traditional prosecual decision is that because there's a doctrine that the president can't be indicted. it appears they intended to leave that up to congress through its impeachment power, but attorney general william barr went in and absolved the
case on obstruction. trump's hand picked attorney general. for that reason he's being epundly criticized not only by democrats but inddent observers. this makes a pouwerful case for obstrueion. the cass lucky thaun like richard nixon which president didn't have the moxy or whatever you want to say to follow through on his desire to squash this investigation. >> ken delanian, our nbc intelligence reporter. thank you so much for joiningus ken. >> we'll see more of ken at 5:00 and then again on nbc nightly news later this evening. keep it here fin contig coverage of the special counsel's report. >> you can read the full redacted version for yourself. you'll find that in our nbc washington app. we are also expecting to hear from the president himself he leaves washington for the holiday weekend. if and when that happen, we will bring that to you. this time tomorrow we'll be talking about the weather. we'll be under a weather alert. storm team 4 is tracking a

advice. i'm on three different things. i got my pill at night, the niceal spranic nasal spray and the drops. >> and the rain>>elps? it helps sometimes. here's the thing. it depends onow much rain, when it rains. i reached out to our microbiologist. she always hashe greatest information. her pollen count for today, how we get the pollen count, they have rods that are lightlyse grea and they spin around on the roof top and they pick up different kinds of pollen, mold spores. they count those, and then they put out the pollen report. mold, weeds and grasses are coming in low. trees are coming in high. she says after a rain, sometimes you can get the pollen washed ut out, if we see things dry out quickly, that pollen can have a burst after it rains, so it doesn't necessarily always washout the pollen. she also noted that we tendo e the pollen have a burst as the sun is coming up, so maybe
when you are planning that run, if you can choose to do so after work versus in the morning, you're likely going to be dealing with less pollen. thanksan for that fstic information. here are your weather headlines. tomorrow we're under a weather alert. heavy rain, stron to severe thunderstorms. more on that in a moment. some showers over the weekend, but i can't stress enough it is not a washout by any means. next week we'll generally have 70s. we're up to6 degrees right now. i think we're going to continue to gain a few degrees over the next hour or so. mild we're dry tonight. skies do cloud up overnight. here's where you can expectow tomorr i'm tracking two waves of heavy rain moving through the area. the first wave right now is favoring the time period between 2:00 and 6:00 p.m. the second wave is favoring the time period between about 10:00 p.m. and 3:00 a t. thating is going to shift a little bit, but i think we're going to be dealing with mainly two waves. . in total we'll see 1 to
