MSNBC’s Katy Tur: Mueller Already Found ‘Quite a Bit’ on Trump

The Justice Department said Mr Mueller delivered his final report to Attorney-General William Barr and officially concluded his probe of Russian election interference and possible coordination with Trump associates. The next steps are up to Trump's attorney general, to Congress and, in all likelihood, federal courts.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not recommending any further indictments in his investigation, reports say.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has turned over his long-awaited final report on the contentious Russian Federation investigation that has cast a dark shadow over Donald Trump's presidency, entangled his family and resulted in criminal charges against some of this closest associates. "The White House has not received or been briefed on the Special Counsel's report", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) said that the report should be released "without delay", and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-N.Y.) and Sen. There was no obstruction [of justice].

Justice Department regulations do not require the release of the entire special counsel report but also do not prevent Barr from doing so, giving him leeway to disclose it if it is in the public interest.

Former FBI director James Comey said in a New York Times op-ed published Thursday that he neither knows nor cares what the conclusion of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation will be - so long as the probe was conducted properly.

Mr Mueller, a former FBI director, had been examining since 2017 whether Mr Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow to try to influence the election and whether the Republican president later unlawfully tried to obstruct his investigation.

Former FBI Director James Comey said Friday that he hopes that President Donald Trump won't be "impeached and removed from office before the end of his term".

Even as Trump blasted Mueller's team, his White House and campaign produced thousands of documents for the special counsel, and dozens of his aides were interviewed. Instead, Comey stresses, he wants a "resounding" defeat of Trump in 2020 to restore "the belief that the president of the United States can not be a chronic liar who repeatedly attacks the rule of law". "It's all a witch hunt".

"You put the wrong people in a couple of positions, and they leave people for a long time that shouldn't be there, and all of a sudden, they're trying to take you out with bullshit, OK", Trump said.

If the DOJ decides not to make the Mueller report public, Cole added, "Congress should use its subpoena powers to make sure the truth sees the light of day".

Trump and his allies have spent almost two years trying to discredit Mueller. "I mean, frankly, I told the House, if you want, let them see it".

Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, Trump's personal lawyers, also issued a statement in response to Mueller's filing. But Mueller's findings could amplify the liberal voices in the House Democratic caucus already calling for Trump's impeachment.
