Trump expresses openness to the Mueller report being publicly released


Mueller had been a member of one of Trump's golf courses but reportedly ended his membership over a fee dispute.

U.S. President Donald Trump talks to reporters as he departs on travel to OH at the White House in Washington, U.S., March 20, 2019.

Whenever Mueller does submit his report, Barr will review it and is expected to create his own report to send to Republican and Democratic leaders of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees to explain the special counsel's findings.

Trump, for his part, said he had no idea when the report would be released, but maintained his innocence, saying there was "no collusion" and "no obstruction".

Half of the Americans surveyed in a new poll agree that the USA president is the victim of a "witch hunt" in relation to the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference. The attorney general is ultimately the official who decides what, if anything, in the report can become public.

Nance emphasized that future Russian interference in USA 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". I also think President Trump has helped himself by unequivocally denouncing the Democrats and the the Mueller investigation, on Twitter and elsewhere.

The president's camp has largely avoided responding to George Conway until now, with Eric Trump one of the few to fire back. Trump and Parscale were seemingly angered by George Conway suggesting he was a narcissist.

"Let it come out, and let people see it", the president said.

He also is pushing to prevent any release of Mueller's report.

Trump's comments come less than a week after the House passed a resolution to encourage Attorney General William Barr to release the report's findings to both Congress and the country amid fears information about the investigation would not be made public.

"We'll see if it's fair", he added. That's up to the attorney general. "We have a very good, highly-repected man and we'll see what happens, but it's sort of interesting that a man writes a report - I had 306 electoral votes against 223 - that's a tremendous victory", he said. He is not "just" writing a report. "I mean, frankly, I told the House, If you want, let them see it". "With all of that being said, I look forward to seeing the report".

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.
