Trump blasts special counsel report because Mueller wasn't elected

President Donald Trump says it's "ridiculous" that special counsel Robert Mueller is writing a report to summarize his findings - but says he's looking forward to seeing what it says.

Trump gaggled with the press on the South Lawn of the White House Wednesday afternoon as he prepared to depart for a trip to OH, during which he was asked "Do you think the public has a right to see the Mueller report?" Mueller, he said, "can't be doing much of a money laundering investigation" if he hasn't subpoenaed Deutsche Bank, which has loaned millions of dollars to Trump.

As he has before, Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mueller's investigation.

In fact, more people now believe Trump's denials about collusion than trust Mueller - 30 percent expressed "a lot of trust" in the president's claims that his campaign did not collude with Russian Federation.

It's at this point that we'll really learn if Trump's supposed desire to see the report released means anything at all. "That's up to the attorney general".

Fewer than a third, however, said they believe the U.S. House should seriously considering impeaching the president.

Trump has repeatedly attacked the probe into his Russian Federation ties as "a witch hunt" and is expected to raise the volume as he starts campaigning for reelection in 2020.

He is now in the interest of another club, one in a white outfit. "What was wrong? Bah, We did not win", he said. Premier League sides including Man United , and Serie A giants Juventus are interested.

Trump, of course, has railed relentlessly against the probe, deeming it a baseless "witch hunt", sometimes in all capital letters, and has said it was based on unfounded allegations perpetrated by his "deep state" enemies in the Department of Justice, as well as his foes in the Democratic Party and the media.

"I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of the country", Trump added, which is false. "We have been under attack", Nance stressed, "and now, we have that attack occurring within our own institutions-coming from, I'm sorry to say it, our own White House". "We will soon find out?" he tweeted.

Gingrich asserted, "Trump can say: here is the report".

Mueller, Trump charges, "put 13 angry Democrats in" his investigative team, also false.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, was appointed in May 2017 with widespread bipartisan backing in Congress, four months into Trump's turbulent presidency. That's not accurate, although Mueller reportedly did interview for the job of FBI Director.

Trump's full response to reporters before boarding Marine One for OH was contradictory at times, with the president saying the public deserves to see the report while adding that it was up to Barr.
