Trump says Mueller investigation report should be made public

Answering questions from journalists at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he had no idea when the report would be released, adding, "no collusion, no collusion" and "we'll see if it's fair".

The only way that the American public will trust the conclusions of the Mueller investigation is if the report is made public. In fact, Trump's now openly demanding that the "ridiculous" report, which Mueller is expected to deliver to Attorney General William Barr "any day now", be released to the public.

"Does the public have a right to see the Mueller report?".

President Trump sure sounds confident that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report won't be as damaging as the president's critics have hoped.

The series has brought former presidents, journalists, humanitarians and dignitaries to the college since 1968, and Comey is scheduled to give remarks both Thursday and Friday. He also does not know whether Trump obstructed justice.

"I got 63 million more, 63 million votes and now somebody just writes a report".

"This development raises questions about the impartiality and independence of Weissmann and Ahmad as senior members of the Special Counsel's investigation", wrote Jordan and Meadows in the letter to Barr.

When Democrats were in the minority of the House in 2017 and 2018, Schiff consistently pointed out that Republican efforts to obtain information about the Hillary Clinton email investigation from the department seemed to stretch accepted precedent - precedent that now means that Congress is entitled to extensive disclosures about the Mueller probe.

Jordan said the dismissal of two key investigators at the start of March-taken as a sign of closure-may have been due to their bias, the Washington Examiner reported. The claims of collusion have also been repeatedly dismissed by both Moscow and Trump, who has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

"What happens when it comes back and says none of this was true, the president did not do anything wrong?"

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was appointed in May 2017 with widespread bipartisan backing in Congress, four months into Trump's turbulent presidency. That's not accurate, although Mueller reportedly did interview for the job of FBI Director. "I'm not rooting for anything at all, except that the special counsel be permitted to finish his work, charge whatever cases warrant charging and report on his work". That's why Trump dubbed the Mueller team "13 Angry Democrats".

His line of attack helps explain the strategy adopted by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi when faced with demands from the Democratic grassroots for the impeachment of the President even before Mueller's report. And you know who will want to see it?
