these questions focused on what took place during the campaign. was there any collusion. we know the president said 1 million times in public there was no collusion. i guess the answers are similar to that. is mueller going to be satisfied by these questions? or does it open up something new. rob: neither the questions from bob mueller know the answers have been released to the public. jillian: matt whitaker spending the day in new york city, this morning he will speak to the joint terrorism task force and discuss national security efforts. after that, email distribution center at jfk national airport and remark on ways to combat the nation's deadly opioid crisis. rob: forecasted rain for today will help end the camp fire in northern california but the rain also means a big risk of flooding and mudslides, the weather shift coming, 82 people
