A team of NBC News reporters broke two major news scoops about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation on MSNBC's Deadline: White House on Thursday.


"Breaking news in the Mueller investigation into Trump/Russia collusion and potential Obstruction of Justice," anchor Nicolle Wallace reported. "NBC News breaking the story this hour that talks over a presidential interview with Mueller's investigators -- which were much further along than had been previously reported -- have now largely broken down, with both sides proceeding as though a presidential interview is no longer in the cards."

"The other big headline and potentially more consequential one for this White House," Wallace continued. "NBC News breaking the news that the timetable for delivering a report on Obstruction of Justice may now be sped up, absent a presidential interview by the Mueller team."

"NBC News also reporting, 'Mueller would then likely send a confidential report to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the Russia investigation. Rosenstein could decide whether to make the report public and send its findings to congress. From there, congress would then decide whether to begin impeachment proceedings against the president,' that is according to two sources," the host continued.
