new information about some breaking news that we've been covering this evening. an activeat shooter sin at a virginia beach municipal complex. our sister station waby is reporting that one of the people injured there is an officer. ow, we don't know exactly how badly he or she has been hurt. we don't know the conditions of the other people. >> we ao know that police also say they believe there's one suspect a that at this time that suspect is in custody. police did not identify the suspect. we're expecting an uate any minute now. we'll keep you posted here on news 4. time now for a deeper look at some of the week's top political stories. >> someone in the newsroom today longed to return to a time when politics was boring. hit this week. apparently not t week. special counsel robert mueller
6:18 pm
spoke out this week and a big part of his message forced americans to focus on russia terference in our political process. so big question now is what is congress doing about that? >> and even though we now have mueller's message in his own words, president trump and his allies are adding their own spin in a way that's not always correct. >> we're going to check in with democrats on the 2020 presidential race. why are so many of them on the west coast this weekend? >> chuck todd is nbc news political director and moderator of "meet the press". t's start with election security. ere's several bipartisan bills in thesenate. hy haven't they come to the floor? >> the house has passed some of the bills. right now mitch mcconnelln' doest want these votes to happen yet. perhaps he's protecting some republicans who don't wantto feel as if they -- if the aspresident makes it seem f these are aimed at
6:19 pm
delegitimizing the election or somehow codifying the idea that russia helped him, it becomes a top vote for republicans that are picking a between trump his base and the bill which of course i think is sort of an odd posture to take except the fact is the president himself does not accept the finding that russia helpe- - that russia, a interfered in the election, and b, did so on his behalf. so if the person who's supposed a sign the bill, so this is mcconnell beingbit probably of a political pragmatist but only for his side of the aisle. >> robert mueller, we heard his mois. >> y were hoping it was different. we all thought it was going to >> it was, like, that's what he sounds like? >> we finally did hear from him. we also heard from a republican
6:20 pm
who was critical of the president, justinrom michigan who came out and saidthat he took to twitter to explain his reaction to the mueller report. he's now supporting opening up t impeachm proceedings on the psident and one of his constituents told him it was the first time that she heard that the mueller report did not ompletely exonerateresident trump. she said she listens to mainly concerns that donald trump joun or said even robert muelr said there was no collusion. he did not say that. >here's what we learned from speaking out. he didn't say anything that report.n the i mean, exact sentences. he just reiterated. we don't plead, peoe. i think that's what we learned.y i'm sure onl 10% read the warren commission. there's no doubt people in our business read it cover to cover. i've read this thing cover to
6:21 pm
cover both parts one and part two. but i do thi it was a reminder and mueller gave voice to it. it's one thing to see it on paper. if we could exonerate the president, we would have said so. it's another to hear what you heard about part one in the conspiracy thing. it wasn't no evidence which is said.bill barr bill barr clearly misrepresented what mueller intended to say. we can debate barr's other decisions, but he said no evidence. muelleraid insufficient evidence. >> that's a huge difference. >> when you read the report, it was clear they had plenty of evidence. they just didn't think they could win a court case.s thae difference. >> and the comparison you make with the warren commission, we don't disagree about the facts of that situation, right? >> right. we just disagree on how we got there. >let's move to the 2020 race. the democratic candidates, most rf them, many of them, have left
6:22 pm
the early pimary states. they're all running to california this weekend. what's that all about? >> the california democratic party convention is number one. number two, california is an early state, the first of the first four that will be the first tuesday in march for the super tuesday and more importantly california being an all mail-in ballot. they go out the day of the iowa caucus. candidates are treating california as sort of the fifth early state. while there is a couplef californians including kamala harris who is a statewide elected official, there's way too many delegates at stake in california to not try to find a piece, to go in the way delegate are allocated. if you get 50% in a congressional district, you can gate.ligible for a de pretty much everybody but joe biden. >> joe biden is not there. >> not yet. when you're winning, you don't have to. i think hat's thetact he's aking until he doesn't have to. it is i think risky front runner strategy, but it feels
6:23 pm
less risky when there's 23 other people chasing. >> what do you have coming up this weekend? >> it's a packed sw. mick mulvaney on this tariff business with mexico. andl try to figure that out see if that's still an active threat by sunday. beto o'rourke and andrew mccabe. >> the easiest job. no >> you k you think that. remember you on show, i always joke, the people we want never want to come on. the people that come on we don't want. >> this week, these are people we wanted and we got them. it's a good week. and a quickh reminder t chuck will be examining life after mueller when "meet the pres" airss
