saying once again it clears the president. >> and we have team coverage of, we have president trump's reaction and what happens now as we move forward. nbc's mark murray will join us with analysis. >> let's begin this evening with news4's eica gonzales with the live desk information coming in now. >> it's been a long day of testimony. we've been glued to our screens, we know a lot of people have spent the day at the office and may have missed some of the big moments. so here are few of theor m memorable sound bites and exchange from today's hearing. >> the russian government's efforts to interfere in our election is among the most serious. as i said on may 29, this deserves the attentionofvery american. >> the president has repeatedly claimed that your report found there was no obstruction that it completely and totally exonerated him. but that is not what your report said, is it? ? correct, it is not what the eport said. >> and when donald trump called your investigation a witch hunt
5:01 pm
that was also false, was it not? >> i would like to think so, yes. >> your investigation is not a witch hunt, is it? >> it is not a witch hunt. >> we've heard from the white house about today's hearing. press secretary stephanie grisham called it an epic embarrassment for the democrats. president trumpweeting out several thoughts about his hearing. like quote i would like to thank the democrats for holding this morning's hring end quote and just a few minutes ago he addressed reporters at the white house. take ae list >> we had a very good day today, the republican party, ourc nt country. there was no defense of what robert mueller was trying to defend. whether his performance was aed about one or a good one. i think everybody understands that. i think everybody what was going on. there was no defense to this ridiculous hoax this witchhunt that's been going on for a long
5:02 pm
time. >> continuing our coverage of the muellh rings, we're joined by mark murray. the senior political editor tore nbc news. >> what was your big ta-away? was there any kind, anything we could consider a bombshell? or was it just kind of steady as he goes? >> wendy, if were you looking for a bombshell or a big theatrical performance, a perry masment. you didn't get it it if you were a democrat. on the other hand, because robert mueller was so carefued so meason what he wanted to actually talk out, to me i gave him a lot of credibility on what he did discuss. and as erica mentioned on the clip, him saying this is not a witch hunt. it is not a hoax that the russian interference campaign wanted to benefit trump. that president trump and his use
5:03 pm
of wikileaks during the tail-end of the 2016 election, was problematic at the very least. those type of statements from robert r almost undercut everything you heard from president trump. hey, this is a witch hunt. there was no collusn, no obstruction. and if you really paid attention to mueller, and him having the credibility he had by sticking to the facts of what he wanted to do, i don't necessarily think this was a god day for the trump white house. >> but mark, this was seen by many as having the potential to sway democrats who were on the fence, about impeaching the president. and mueller avoidedg usin that term in the report. how likely does that seem after today? >> ah, on the impeachment politics, i don't know. we'll have to see how t next 24 hours or 48 hours or a week goes on the coverage of whether that happens. to meth the ma is already very complicated for democrats when it comes to impeachment. they have the votes in the house
5:04 pm
to begin impeachment proceedings, to be ail to convict him in the senate, the math is not there and there are democrats eyeing the 2020 election. saying that's the best way to get rid of the president. on the other hand you have a story that's very complicated for the white house with, you end up having somebody like robert mueller, who went down a long list of either wrongdoing or potential wrongdoing or unseemly wrongdoing by not only the president, but people around him. to make any kind of broad brushstrokes about wre the impeachment politics are, i think it's too early. democrats didt get the knockout big moment. but at the same time, i do think that what mueller ended up saying was pretty damaging to the white house. >> how do you think this isng gto play beyond the beltway? one thing that happens here in washington and a lot of people around the rest of the country,t summertimey're doing their thing. do you think this was must-see tv? do you think it connected with anyone out there?
5:05 pm
>> so here's one of the interesting things about the entire trump era. i think so many americans have their minds made up about president trump and his presidency two years ago, but when you're talking about t 5 to 10% of the electorate that's in the middle. doesn't have their minds made up. i think that this story is so confusing, so complex, a lot of people haven't made up their minds this is what ended up happening today, might ge them more information to make a judgment on it pretty complicated story. you can see full coverage analysis of robert mueller's testimony. coming up tonight on "nbc nightly news." peopkee around our area wo up early and headed for the bars to watch today's hearings. coming up later on news4 at 5:00, tommy mcfly will have more on the watch parties. a good reasone to h to the bar whether you were watching the hearing or not. a temporary victory for the trump administration today. when it comes to asylum
