Trump Slams Democrats, 'Dirty Cops' Ahead of Mueller Report Release

Trump Slams Democrats, 'Dirty Cops' Ahead of Mueller Report Release

One White House official said they hadn't yet planned for how the staff would pore over the report's 400 (redacted) pages and then prepare responses to revelations or anecdotes that could prove damaging to Trump, current and former White House staffers, and the president's business and political associates.

Barr released a four-page summary he'd prepared, stating that the special counsel found no evidence of collusion between members of the Trump campaign and the Russians during the 2016 presidential election. But Mueller and his boss, Attorney General William Barr, also have a lot riding on how the report is received by the American people.

Congressman Jerrold Nadler, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee that is probing the election, told CNN on Sunday that Barr should release the full report and underlying investigatory evidence to his panel, but Barr has balked.

The Justice Department said on Monday that it expects to release the redacted version on Thursday morning, sending the findings of the almost two-year probe to Congress and making them available to the public.

Fearing retribution from an angry president, some of those presidential confidants have been reaching out to the Justice Department to see whether they will be named as collaborators in Mr. Mueller's findings. "They got asked questions and told the truth", one unnamed official told NBC, "and now they're anxious the wrath will follow".

The Justice Department regularly redacts information about people who were interviewed or scrutinized in investigations but not charged. "Just in time for Easter, it will be a insane quilt of colors created to cover up key facts and, nearly more important, break the flow - and diminish the power - of the Mueller Report as written", tweeted Elizabeth de la Vega, who served as a federal prosecutor for more than two decades. Needless to say, if the "truth" entirely consisted of nothing-to-see-here reminiscences, no one would be anxious about having their name attached to them.

Trying to keep all this straight, he hates the Mueller investigation and thinks it's a made-up witch hunt, except when it reveals something damning about a person who once worked for Obama, in which case it then deserves all the attention from news outlets that he's spent his tenure in the White House also calling "fake". So a Thursday afternoon mini-press conference with reporters and Trump shouting over the executive helicopter could provide the administration's first substantive response to potentially damaging Mueller findings.

To that end, a recent NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist College survey asked respondents if, based on what they know already about Mueller's findings, they thought his report will "clear President Trump of any wrongdoing or do questions still exist?" The president himself seethed at a political rally that the whole thing was an attempt "to tear up the fabric of our great democracy".

"The downside of that strategy was they'll have to live by what's in the actual document", the strategist said. I was positive, I told them, that Trump would never be the Republican nominee, let alone be elected president. Unfortunately for partisans, the report will likely disappoint both sides, and will bore everyone else. The crime was committed by the other side. "He's being as forthcoming as he can", Rosenstein said of Barr, and so this notion that he's trying to mislead people, I think is just completely freaky".

Barr said he would examine the details of how the FBI's counterintelligence investigation began. Critics of the Russian Federation investigation have seized on the fact that the warrant application cited Democratic-funded opposition research, done by a former British spy, into the Trump campaign's ties to Russian Federation.
