Half of Americans see a Trump victim of witch hunt

AFP  SAUL LOEB

Earlier this week, ABC News chief legal analyst and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams speculated that Trump's confidence about disclosing the report could be an indication that Trump has been tipped off to its contents. "Man gets appointed by a deputy and he writes a report", the president said outside the White House as he was embarking on a trip to OH to visit a tank factory and attend a fundraiser.

Mueller will submit his findings to the Trump-appointed attorney general, who is not obligated to release the report.

But that aside, it's simply absurd to read much into Trump's stated desire for the report to be released.

In fact, Sessions recused himself months before Mueller's appointment after revelations that he met twice with Russia's ambassador to the United States during the 2016 campaign and subsequently failed to disclose the meetings as attorney general, when asked about contacts with Russians during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing.

Trump then spent several minutes slamming former Attorney General Jeff Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, bragged about his electoral college win, and pointed out that he got "63 million more" votes than Robert Mueller did.

Asked if the public should be allowed to see the report, Trump said: "I don't mind".

Democrats in the House of Representatives say they will impeach Trump if there is evidence of wrongdoing in Mueller's report.

Trump referred to his 2016 election win as "one of the greatest.in the history of this country" and said by contrast that Mueller had no popular support.

Gohmert said Mueller, a lifelong registered Republican, enlisted "Democratic henchmen" like prosecutor Andrew Weissmann and others to probe Trump and his associates. "Let it come out, and let people see it". That's up to the attorney general.

Even if Mueller's final report does not implicate the president in criminal conduct, the investigation was far from fruitless. "We have a very good, highly-repected man and we'll see what happens, but it's sort of interesting that a man writes a report - I had 306 electoral votes against 223 - that's a tremendous victory", he said.

"With all of that being said", he added, "I look forward to seeing the report". He is not "just" writing a report. "If you want to keep investigating me, it just shows that it is purely partisan".

"You know better than anybody there was no collusion", Trump said to one reporter.
