Trump on Mueller report: 'Let it come out, let people see it'

"That's up to the attorney general".

While Trump's base has always been suspicious of Mueller, the president's team believes independents and moderate Democrats who backed him in the last election but have since soured may return to the fold if convinced he has been unfairly targeted.

"The bottom line: Do not expect a harsh condemnation of President Donald Trump or any of his associates if they have not been charged with crimes", Karl writes.

"And now somebody just writes a report", Trump said.

"I think it's ridiculous, but I want to see the report", he added.

Trump, of course, nominated Rosenstein, who was confirmed by the Republican-controlled Senate in a 94-6 vote. "Let people see it, that's up to the attorney general", NPR reports.

The House voted unanimously last week for a non-binding resolution calling for any report in Mueller's investigation to be made public. It contains the findings of Robert Mueller and his team who probed the case for nearly two years. I'm also not rooting for Mr. Mueller to "clear" the president. They say Trump directed his personal lawyer Michael Cohen to make illegal hush-money payments to two women as a way to quash potential sex scandals during the campaign. "With all of that being said, I look forward to seeing the report".

There is certainly no evidence, as Trump has repeatedly suggested, that they are "best friends".

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.

In a recent interview on CBS's "Face the Nation", while noting that he was now an outsider with no privileged information, Bharara said, "I think people should view with some skepticism the notion that gets breathlessly reported every week that the Mueller investigation is coming to an end". That's a tremendous victory.

"I know that he's conflicted", Trump said.

Trump, of course, has railed relentlessly against the probe, deeming it a baseless "witch hunt", sometimes in all capital letters, and has said it was based on unfounded allegations perpetrated by his "deep state" enemies in the Department of Justice, as well as his foes in the Democratic Party and the media. That's why Trump dubbed the Mueller team "13 Angry Democrats".

"I want the public to understand us as we paint this picture of what is happening in our country, the stonewalling, the lies", House Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings told CNN's Manu Raju on Wednesday.

The speaker believes the process of impeachment is so damaging to the nation's political fabric that unless there is some truly grievous offense uncovered by investigations, the proper remedy for a presidency she sees as unethical and disastrous, is at the ballot box.
