During a discussion about an NBC News report about Trump White House aides worrying about the president’s reaction when he learns they cooperated with the Mueller probe, reporter Carol E. Lee noted that nobody knows yet what the administration is going to do.

Lee added that the White House is still figuring out how “dramatic” to be during their pushback to Mueller’s report.
