Trump Says he Doesn't Mind If Public Sees Mueller's Russia Probe Report

Trump Says he Doesn't Mind If Public Sees Mueller's Russia Probe Report

President Donald Trump said Wednesday (March 20) that he believes special counsel Robert Mueller's report should be released to the public, even as he disparaged its very existence as "ridiculous".

Mueller is preparing to submit a report to US Attorney General William Barr on his findings, including Russia's role in the election and whether Trump unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe. Mueller, he said, "can't be doing much of a money laundering investigation" if he hasn't subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, which has loaned millions of dollars to Trump.

Trump continued that effort Wednesday, calling Mueller "conflicted" and criticizing the lawyers who have worked on the case.

Trump tweeted about the poll Monday, indicating that "very few think [the investigation] is legit".

"We'll see what the report says - let's see if it's fair".

Trump then spent several minutes slamming former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, bragged about his electoral college win, and pointed out that he got "63 million more" votes than Robert Mueller did.

Sixty-two percent of Americans say the House should not seriously consider impeaching Trump, compared with 54 percent last October.

That's what President Donald Trump has shouted for two years about the special counsel's Russian Federation probe.




"I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country and even you will admit that".

He added "I want to see the report and you know who will want to see it?"

But that aside, it's simply absurd to read much into Trump's stated desire for the report to be released.

Only 28 percent of people surveyed still highly trust that former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Mueller's investigation has been conducted fairly and accurately, down 5 points since December and representing the lowest level to-date.

The president has repeatedly bashed Mueller and the entire Russian Federation investigation as a "witch hunt". "Now somebody's going to write a report, who never got a vote".

As part of the investigation, Mueller also took over several other existing FBI investigations, including those into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and former Trump Campaign Manager Paul Manafort.

Trump's full response to reporters before boarding Marine One for OH was contradictory at times, with the president saying the public deserves to see the report while adding that it was up to Barr.
