Don’t get snowed by Trump’s supposed support for releasing the Mueller report

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

"No collusion, no collusion", Trump declared Wednesday.

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".

Trump then spent several minutes slamming former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, bragged about his electoral college win, and pointed out that he got "63 million more" votes than Robert Mueller did.

U.S. Rep. Jim McGovern, a Worcester Democrat and chairman of the House Rules Committee, urged his congressional colleagues Monday to back a resolution before his panel that would ensure Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report on his probe into the 2016 election is made public.

Also, other parts of the Suffolk/USA Today poll "contained bad news for Trump", Rupar wrote. Mueller has previously held several senior positions in the Justice Department, including FBI Director.

Time to show the goods - or move on and let it go. "The president will take the findings and run on them, rather than against them, by painting the special counsel as an example of failed government overreach and Trump himself as the victim who managed to prove his innocence".

"I had the greatest electoral victory in the history of our country, one of them", he said.

The president repeatedly stressed a relatively new line of attack on Mueller's legitimacy, arguing that the initial premise for launching an investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the election was unfair given how he was elected. Under the rules of his May 2017 appointment, Mueller, a former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is to submit to Barr "a confidential report explaining the prosecution or declination decisions". "But it's sort of interesting that a man out of the blue just writes a report".

Or Trump's lawyers could tell the attorney general not to release information that might shed further light on Trump's efforts to obstruct the investigation - such as information on private conversations between Trump and top advisers - by asserting executive privilege, Kent says. But I want to see the report.

"I think you see a massive injection directly into your devices and to the places we can communicate with you where you can't look away", he explained.
