Trump Lays Down Cover Fire Before Release Of Mueller Report


"Let it come out, let people see it", Trump told reporters as he left the White House for a trip to Ohio. Attorney General William Barr is then expected to produce his own report for Congress and has said he wants to make public as much of Mueller's findings as he can under the law.

"A deputy, because of the fact that the Attorney General didn't have the courage to do it himself, a deputy, that's appointed, appoints another man to write a report", is how Trump described the Mueller investigation. But during his confirmation hearing last month, Barr said he ultimately will decide what the public sees, and that any report will be in his words, not Mueller's.

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".

US President Donald Trump says he believes special counsel Robert Mueller's report should be released to the public, even as he disparaged its very existence as "ridiculous". "Let's see whether or not it's legit".

Trump has been investigated for nearly two years, following suspicions that he or his team had improper ties to Moscow. Mueller has previously held several senior positions in the Justice Department, including FBI Director. Trump asked. "It's called the Mueller report".

"I just won an election with 63 million votes or so, 63 million, and I'm saying to myself, wait a minute, I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country, and now I have someone writing a report that never got a vote?" he said.

Kraft to reject plea deal in solicitation case
A spokesman for the Florida prosecutors said Tuesday if Kraft does not accept this deal, they plan on taking it to trail. The NFL's media representatives did not immediately respond to a request for comment from ABC News.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 420-0 last week on a non-binding resolution calling for Mueller's report to be released both to Congress and to the public, but it is not clear how the measure will fare in the Senate. And I don't get it.

"You know better than anybody there was no collusion", Trump said to one reporter. At the same time, let it come out.

But the claim, which Comey made in The New York Times, is at odds with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's testimony about his actions shortly after being fired by Trump in May 2017.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, recently testified before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington.

Comey instructed his friend, Daniel Richman, to give the Times a memo he wrote about a conversation he had with Trump on February 14, 2017.
