Trump Again Supports Idea of Making Mueller’s Russia Probe Report Public

Amid signs that special counsel Robert Mueller will soon complete his investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, President Trump says that he looks forward to seeing the report and that it should be made public.

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. According to Gingrich, Trump could easily use Mueller's final report as a political talking point if it doesn't contain any major bombshells. The U.S. House has already voted 420 to 0 to release the report, but now the Senate refuses to vote on the measure.

Mueller is required to produce a confidential report and submit it to the head of the Justice Department, Attorney General William Barr.

The White House press shop, meanwhile, is on alert, but has largely kept its distance from preparations related to the Mueller report.

Lisa Page, former special counsel to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, left the Mueller probe before texts with Strzok emerged, revealing strong animus against Trump. Mueller was not a candidate for president in that race.

But there is one thing that Comey does hope comes of the Mueller investigation.

Trump has repeatedly railed against Mueller's probe.

California governor to place moratorium on death penalty
But Newsom has called the death penalty a costly "failure" that discriminates against the mentally ill, minorities and the poor. Newsom's decision comes after California voters have rejected ballot measures to abolish capital punishment twice since 2014.

In 2016, the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained a FISA warrant to spy on Trump 2016 presidential campaign associate Carter Page, and in the warrant, the Federal Bureau of Investigation used the Steele Dossier, a collection of unsubstantiated claims about Trump-Russia ties compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele, who was commissioned by the Democratic National Committee and the 2016 presidential campaign of former State Secretary Hillary Clinton. "I think it's ridiculous, but I want to see it".

"I don't believe him because he has obstructed every step along the way", Democratic Rep. Eric Swalwell of California said on "Erin Burnett OutFront" on Wednesday. "I'm not rooting for anything at all, except that the special counsel be permitted to finish his work, charge whatever cases warrant charging and report on his work".

Trump is not the only senior Washington politician who is preparing the political terrain for the eventual filing of the Mueller report.

Trump again on Wednesday insisted, "There was no collusion".

Mueller has been investigating claims that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election for months, as well as allegations of collusion between Trump's campaign team and Moscow.

The plan is clear: Delegitimize Mueller personally and professionally, paint his findings as a deep state coup that trashes votes of his millions of Trump supporters, and argue that he's bulletproof since he's doing such a great job.
