News had just broken that at least 20 were dead and hundreds wounded. “A senior U.S. intelligence official tells NBC news there has been an explosion.”
As Matthews speaks, a video plays in the background from the arena, and loud screams are heard as people on the scene navigate the aftermath of the attack. Matthews nevertheless quickly moved on to a more pressing matter.
“We’ll get the latest on that in a minute,” he said. “We begin however, with the shocking news in Washington tonight.”
