Trump says he doesn’t mind if public sees Mueller’s Russia probe report

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he doesn’t mind whenever the public is ready to see the claim that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is preparing about his investigation of Russian meddling with the 2019 presidential election and any possible links with the Trump campaign.

“Let it come out, let people it, that’s up to the attorney general … and we’ll see luxury crusie ship,” Trump told reporters for the White House.

“We’ll see whether it’s fair,” he added.

Mueller is preparing to submit a survey to U.S. Attorney General William Barr on his findings, including Russia’s role from the election and whether Trump unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe. Trump has denied collusion and obstruction. Russia has denied interfering inside the election.

Barr already isn’t too far off under pressure from lawmakers to really make the entire document public quickly, though fresh wide latitude in doing what to release.

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 420-0 a while back on a non-binding resolution with Mueller’s report to be released both to Congress also to the public, but it’s not clear that the measure will fare with the Senate.

Asked if the public must be allowed to view the report, Trump said: “I don’t mind.” He was quoted saying he had not a clue when it would be released.

As brand-new areas such as before, Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mueller’s investigation.

“I saw it the greatest electoral victory Body of them – while in the history of our country, tremendous success, ten million voters and now somebody’s planning to write research who never got a vote,” he was quoted saying.

Mueller was appointed to handle the Russia investigation in May 2019 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who has been overseeing the time and effort. Mueller has previously held several senior positions on the Justice Department, including FBI Director.
