6:14 pm
his lawyers this week to answer a list of written questions from special counsel robert mueller. the president also launched personal attacks on the mueller team, leading to speculation that there may be something on the horizon there. >> meanwhile, cnn wins the first round in a legal battle with the white house. jim acosta's press pass has been restored, for now anyway. >> acy n pelosi presided over the biggest democratic gain since watergate. will she prevail in the race to become the next speaker of the house? >> chuck todd is the nbc news political director and the moderator of "meet the press." let's start with the president. so he said today tha he wrote all the ansrs to the special prosecutor's questions himself. and what are we to make ofst th tweets he was sending out to mueller yesterday? >> it's possible he is in the middle of a take-home test. it's an open book. he doesn't have to go into the grand jury room.he obviouslidn't like the
6:15 pm
questions, that's my guess. and you could feel hisat frusn and, look, our own reporting says he we knew he has been working with his wyers. he says he was himself. which by the way doe put him in tricky territory. he owns these answer news whenever the repor comes out. he can't somehow claim oh, the lawyer did it for me and misspoke. but i do think that we now understand where the theory came from. it's when theay lawyers areing well, there is a gap there, what's thatp. and we know how he gets it, and he gets very frustrate and flustered over this. look, the thing, we only know e version that he's providing. we only know the version that dy giuliani is providing. we have no idea whether he is doing this to try to prevent a subpoena.f we don't know this is being done under the threat of a subpoena. we don't knoif theres a whole bunch of other questions that mueller has that he is refusing to answer, which is likely anything that happe hd whil was president, the obstruction of justice questions, which they have said they don't believe they have to answer. since he was head of the
6:16 pm
executive branch. so -- one of the things i aution everybody is we don't know howhe's answering this question. under threat of subpoena, under a subpoenaalready, whatever that is, there is a lot of stuff we don't knowhi in other than obviously he's trying to get something t mueller said. >> we've gone down that. i went down that road one time too. re are the known knowns of mueller and theton known unknowns. >> do we know about the state of e first amendment that the white house has lost the battle with the court to keep cnn's jim acosta out of there. and the thing is, if he doesn't like cnn and doesn't like j acosta, why does he call on him? he is the one who determinesho gets called on. >> which is the trump-appointed judge pointed ow. is interesting what he avoided answering. he didn't answer the first amendment aspect of the question, the judge, essentially saying they were given no due
6:17 pm
process which leads someone to elieve, okay, i'll be honest, where i thought cnn's case was strongest was, you know, it was on the first amendment grounds. they don't get to decide. cnn is an accredited newsza orgaon. they don't get to decide who cnn sends. the question was that hard pass. i have one of those hard passes. it is not my property. it is the property of thenited states government. it even says on here, if lost, it has an address to the washington navy yard that it gets sent to. it does not belong to me. it is my identification tf i go into white house. so that's where i think he didn't and they weren't -- so i'll be curious. does the white house pursue that further, create a s of standards, and then try to use that as a reason to pull hard passes?nt that will beesting if they do that. i do think we get caught up in the specifics. when trump feels like he won, the minute cnn decided to sue. he now gets to tell people what? i fight them.
6:18 pm
i fight them all the me. don't give an inch. that's all his people want to hear. >> but he lost. >> , no, no, no, he didn't. in his mind, he won. >> because he foughtback. >> he fought back. that's all that matters. >> the enemy of the people. >> well, you know, of course the media is using the courts and the deep state of trump appointees to get their way. but the point is that that's where i think we miss. they donare -- he didn't care that he lost. he cared that he didn' >> yeah. >> let's get to nancy pelosi. by allaccounts, her supporters believe she is a brilliant tactician. she grew up in a political family. >> right up the street. >> in baltimore and all of thatt and she clait she will be the next speaker. but there are people in her own party who t ank it's time for change. will she prevail? >> i'm still f trying tod the election. in the state of nevada they have above."f the but ultimately, if you're going to beat somebody, you have to beat body. there is nobody running. it is only about 25 people tblt
6:19 pm
are comfor publicly saying they're uncomfortable with her. i do think if the number were 50 or 60, some bigr names with a little more gravitas to take her on would be willing top up. but when you're looking at a public base of just 25 or 30, yore talking 230 is your pool of voters here, okay. when you'reralking 25 30, that's not a good place to begin a campaign that in the old adage, especially someone who has been there as long as she has,nho is operator a bit. there is an oldifsaying. ou're going to shoot at the king, you better not miss. and there is a lot of people who, you kn, haveeen their careers basically stop in their tracks after losing to nancy pelosi. i think that's what gives h toughness. this is the old machine, the daughter of the machine politician back i the days of baltimore. she is tough as nails. my only question is it's for the national democratic party, which
6:20 pm
probably hand, she is the best person to run that house for the democrats. the question is in 21st nty, where she also has to be the spokesperson, is she the bt okesperson? she can say i'm going to put other people in the lead to be the spokesperson. she has said and there is certainly going to be this entire presidential campaign that is going to be a campaign to decide. but that is probably where there is some nervousnessmo some democrats about her being the fopresident's . the way newt gingrich bill clinton's foil. newt gingrich wasill clinton's best friend in 1996. >> all right. >> thank you, chuck. >> sounds like you think she is going to be back. thank you, chuck. >> something we don't know would ve to happen.
