Lochte admits he over exaggerated

(NBC) -

Ryan Lochte and three other United States swimmers are under fire after lying about being robbed in Rio at gunpoint.

On Saturday, the International Olympic Committee set up a disciplinary commission to investigate the behavior of the swimmers to see if they should face any punishment.

Matt Lauer sits down with Lochte to talk about the 'over exaggeration.'

"So when you talked to Billy on Sunday afternoon, you didn't tell him the whole truth. When you spoke with me on Wednesday night by phone, you didn't tell me the whole truth," Lauer said.

Lochte responded, "I left details out. And, which that's why I'm in this mess, is I left certain things out, and I over-exaggerated some parts of the story."
