Trump okay with fully releasing Mueller report

Republicans block U.S. Senate Democrats' 2nd attempt to make Mueller report public

"For the president to say he is completely exonerated directly contradicts the words of Mr. Mueller and is not to be taken with any degree of credibility", House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of NY said in a joint statement. He even offered Trump a faux-apology in the wake of Mueller's findings, looking solemnly into the camera and declaring, "Mr. President, if you're watching - and I know you are - I'm sorry... that you're a bad president".

U.S. Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell, of Kentucky, blocked another attempt by Democrats to get special counsel Robert Mueller's report released to the public, saying Mueller and the Justice Department need time to wrap up the 21-month-long review.

Mueller examined Russia's interference in the 2016 election, along with, as Barr's letter describes it, "allegations that members of Trump's presidential campaign, and others associated with it, conspired with the Russian government in its efforts to interfere".

Trump has said he "wouldn't mind" if the full report were released. "As a member of that Committee, I look forward to immediately receiving the full Mueller report and the underlying evidence and continuing to ensure that we uphold the Constitution".

Pelosi, Schiff and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., also said they thought Americans must reserve their judgment about Trump and the special counsel investigation until Mueller's actual work product becomes available.

It was inevitable that in the wake of Attorney General William P. Barr's letter summarizing the determinations made by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, President Trump would take a victory lap.

But Mueller's report hasn't dissuaded some of Trump's fiercest critics among the new Democratic lawmakers who helped flip the House from Republican control. "Many of them you know who they are".

Then Democrats will have to deal with Trump until January 2025.

There's still more action to come from the Justice Department as part of its Russian Federation investigation, but the White House and supporters appear to feel a page has turned in their favor. Republican South Carolina Sen.

So Graham said on Monday that Washington must return its focus to that storyline because of what he said it may reveal about the abuse of power by the administration of President Barack Obama.

Sekulow said it "would be very inappropriate" to release the president's written answers to questions posed by the special counsel, calling the responses provided in November confidential.

Democrats who disputed Trump's claim of vindication focused on those words and on the fact that while Mueller decided not to "draw a conclusion" on whether Trump obstructed justice.

He also has secured guilty pleas or won convictions for a variety of offenses against six Trump aides and advisers, including the president's one-time campaign manager, Paul Manafort; his first national security adviser, Michael Flynn; and his longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen.
