Trump calls Mueller report 'ridiculous' but says it should be made public

And we'll see what happens.

Under Justice Department regulations, Mueller will submit a "confidential" report to attorney general William P. Barr upon the "conclusion" of his investigation.

President Donald Trump talks with journalists before departing the White House on March 20.

It may be that what the public learns of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's findings is not that damaging - at least initially.

There has been widespread speculation that Mueller is close to wrapping up his investigation, and the White House and congressional leaders on both sides of the aisle are planning for any number of outcomes.

Answering questions from reporters on the South Lawn of the White House prior to traveling to Ohio Wednesday, Trump said of Muller's report, "let it come out".

Gohmert said that with all things considered, Trump is correct to want the entire Mueller dossier released to the public.

Fifty percent of voters said that they believe Mueller's investigation is a "witch hunt", agreeing with Trump's constant assertions that he is being investigated over politics rather than credible allegations of wrongdoing.

Half of Americans believe President Donald Trump is the victim of a political "witch hunt", almost two years after the launch of the Russian Federation meddling investigation, a new poll showed Monday.

"I had the greatest electoral victory in the history of our country, one of them", he said. And now I have somebody writing a report that never got a vote?

He also is pushing to prevent any release of Mueller's report. "That's up to the attorney general". "Let people see it", adding: "Let's see whether or not it's legit". That's up to the attorney general.

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

Nance emphasized that future Russian interference in US elections can not be tolerated, asserting, "People say, 'Oh, you want to have a nuclear war.' No, I want a war where.... what happened in the 2016 election is punished and shown that the United States and its allies will never allow this to happen again".

Trump said he was personally looking forward to reading the findings, even as he scorned the fact that Mueller was empowered to write the report in the first place. And you know who I want to see it?

"You know better than anybody there's no collusion", Trump said. There was no collusion.

"But it's sort of an incredible thing that when you had a great victory, somebody comes in, does a report out of nowhere, tell me how that makes sense, who never got a vote, who the day before he was retained to become special counsel, I told him he would be working at the FBI", Trump said.
