crazy mueller report with an expletive as total bs. and new reaction from one okethe most talabout figures in the report, former white house counsel don mcgahn who is described in the mueller fiings as oftenushing back on president trump for things like his efforts to fire the special counsel. mcgahn's lawyer has put out a statement saying that rudy giuliani should not be relitigating some of the events as they are true as described in the report and interestingly he thanked the president for his opportunity to serve in the administration. sheinelle, peter. let's bring in john harwood, he covers washington for cnbc. good oomorning. >>morning. >> quiet week washington. let's start there if we can very quickly. immediately after the report was released, we heard from the president, total exoneration, he said simply that this was basically good news. he described robert mueller initially as honorable.
then in the last 24 hours, something achanged, of a sudden he was going after the report calling it the crazy mueller report. he said a lot of it was totally fabricated and called it as kelly showed us total bull expletive. catnged? >> well, what changed is the president bumped into reality. look, we know that with this president, his reactions are governed moment toyoment how any particular person or set of events is making him look. and no matter how much you surround yourself with people who say, oh, yes, boss, you're great or media, conservative media that says yes, mr. president, you're great, you cannot escape the fact that this report makes him look bad. the details in the report makes him look bad because the conduct it describes is bad. evidence of obstruction, dishonesty, the fact that his campaign embraced thisntrusion in u.s. elections by the foreign
power even if they didn't collude in the execution of that interference. so he doesn't like it, and we saw the same thing described in the mueller report when he fired james comey and people around him were thinking this is a great idea, and he watched the coverage and got angry about it because it was not great idea. >> john, looking forward here now, it's in the hands of ngress. there's some serious pressure here. you have some democratic leaders reluctant to start the impeachmentthprocess,s saying absolutely not, they will not let this behavior stand. what's next on the hill? ? i think what's next for democrats is to decide what they believe. there's no question that it's a politicak to pursue impeachment. nancy pelosi has said we should not pursue impeachment for political reason or not avoid it for a political reason. so they're going to have to decide, do we think this conduct is severe enough to justify us going after him in that way? i think the reali is that most
democrats probably think it is severe enough for that. but they have to decide, do theo want t take that risk. there are always going to be political consequences and it's possible that voters could look at some voters they need could look at pursuing impeachment and say hey, they're going too r, but democrats have got to search their conscience and see what they believe. >> and john, there's a separate question for the democratic 2020 candidates, elizabeth warren becoming the first major candidate to call for impeachment nbc news is reporting that the former vice president joe biden is going to enter the race this coming week. is there a road map in this mueller report for those 2020 democrats to challenge donald trum in the campaign? in 2020? t isre a bumper sticker here or do they need to move on? >> well, look, donald trump's behavior and record gives them plenty to run on. his approval rating has hovered a few points below or a few points above 40% for quite a long time.
st of the country thinks the president's dishonest. most of them disapprove of hism perfore. there's definitely a road map. the question is how far do they push , and elizabeth warren who has set the pace in many ways for the field in terms of ideas and policy is now out pushing on impeachment. how many others follow? what does joe biden say? do we think that hlls going to or impeachment? that will color how the rest of the field does.ce ainly the base voters in the democrat party, the people who turn out for primaries are likely to be inclined in that direction, but they've goter biggonsiderations not only winning the primary but also the general election. >> a conversation we'll be talking about this summer and likely through the next year. john harwood, thank you very much. >> you bet. on this eter weekend, less than a week at t fire at the notre dame cathedral, protesters in france are taking to the street some are angry that while a billion dollars has been raised to rebuild the church, the needs of the poor are going unmet. matt bradley is in paris for us
this morning. matt, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. this is the latest in months of protests but police here are expecting more violence than normal in part over resentment that the country's rich are giving to the notre dame cathral rather than to the poor. today paris braces for more violent protests, as france's so called yellow vests take to the reet once again. 60,000 police assigned to protect the city and its iconic notre dame cathedral, which was engulfed in flames monday night. the rioters haveot been moved by what happened at notre dame said the interior minister, quite the opposite. the protestersenraged that more than a billion dollars have been pledged to repair notre dame cathedral without helping france's own lesabs. it started six months ago, protesting against rising fuel prices. he nearly lost his eye in
protests demanding economic equality. still, he plans to fight on. i asked him if there's going to be war in the streets. it's not a war, he said, it's a revolt. people are speaking up and macron was elected to listen to us. but for cathedral spokesperson andre finau, the proteers' anger is misplaced. >> it's really complicated but this is not the same question, the people do you prefer to buy a boat for them. >> it's money the yellow vests say should go to france's poor. >> reporter: so this, the protests are still ongoing, and people here, not allf them are gry. some of them would like to turn this protest into a vigil in support of the cathedral, but here ifrance, the problem is that all protests often turn violent. some are often determined to commit violent acts. sheinelle, peter. >> you stay safe too.
