Behind Donald Trump's plan to beat the Robert Mueller report — with the aid of Fox News

Trump told reporters as he left the White House that it will be up to the attorney general to decide what to do with the report, which Mueller is expected to share with the Justice Department any day now. "That's up to the attorney general. It's sort of interesting that a man out of the blue writes a report...but I want to see the report".

Although the president said he supports the report's public release, the White House has asked to see it before Barr submits anything to Congress, according to CNN.

The former Federal Bureau of Investigation director added: "I am rooting for a demonstration to the world - and maybe most of all to our president and his enablers - that the United States has a justice system that works because there are people who believe in it and rise above personal interest and tribalism".

Ever since special counsel Robert Mueller took over the U.S. Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation in May 2017, President Donald Trump has railed against it consistently and repeatedly denounced it as a baseless "witch hunt".

He added, "I want to see the report, and you know who will want to see it? Let people see it - that's up to the attorney general".

"I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country".

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.

"I would think it would be more descriptive, more accurate to quit calling it the Mueller report whenever it comes out". That's not accurate, although Mueller reportedly did interview for the job of FBI Director. "I just hope it doesn't", Comey wrote. And I don't get it.

Opponents of the president have speculated that Trump obstructed the Russian Federation investigation, though there's no indication that any obstruction charges are forthcoming.

Trump has been investigated for nearly two years, following suspicions that he or his team had improper ties to Moscow.

"There was no collusion, there was no obstruction, there was no nothing", Trump said on March 20.

"Let it come out, and let people see it", the president said.

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.

Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's former lawyer, recently testified before the House Oversight and Reform Committee, on Capitol Hill in Washington.
