Mueller Report About To Drop; Trump: 'Let People See It'

Now, the President and his aides are bracing for Mueller's investigation to conclude - and whether his final report will signal the end of their long legal nightmare, or merely the beginning.

Mueller is expected to present a report to the Justice Department any day now outlining the findings of his almost two-year investigation into Russian election meddling, possible collusion with Trump campaign officials and possible obstruction of justice by Trump. "And now I have somebody writing a report that never got a vote?"

"I'm also not rooting for Mr. Mueller to "clear" the president".

Opponents of the president have speculated that Trump obstructed the Russian Federation investigation, though there's no indication that any obstruction charges are forthcoming.

Asked if the public should be allowed to see the report, Trump said: "I don't mind".

"We will be prepared and we anticipate that the reports will exonerate the President and demonstrate that there wasn't any collusion", a senior Trump campaign official said.

"Because if Mr. Trump were removed from office by Congress, a significant portion of this country would see this as a coup, and it would drive those people farther from the common center of American life, more deeply fracturing our country".

Mueller will submit his findings to the Trump-appointed attorney general, who is not obligated to release the report. He said he had no idea when it would be released.

Barr already is coming under pressure from lawmakers to make the entire document public quickly, though he has wide latitude in what to release.

As he has before, Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mueller's investigation. On Wednesday, Trump said that Sessions "didn't have the courage to do it himself" and said that it was interesting "that a man out of the blue just writes a report", before again recalling his Electoral College victory in 2016.

Barr said he was shocked to see the text messages between Strzok and Page.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director added: "I am rooting for a demonstration to the world - and maybe most of all to our president and his enablers - that the United States has a justice system that works because there are people who believe in it and rise above personal interest and tribalism".

Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, will spend years in prison as a result of the Mueller probe.

Trump taunted the special counsel, suggesting he is "look [ing] forward" to seeing what Mueller came up with, while also dismissively describing it as an illegitimate effort to undermine his presidency by unelected bureaucrats.

Former FBI Director Robert Mueller has been probing Russian interference in the 2016 election for nearly two years. "Lots of faces, lots of please, and lots of indictments", said Tur, pointing to images of individuals such as former Trump campaign consultant Paul Manafort, former Trump attorney Michael Cohen, and former Trump advisor George Papadopoulos, to name a few.
