Report: WH Wants as Much of Mueller Report Public as Possible

The White House reportedly would prefer “as much . . . as possible” of special counsel Robert Mueller’s long-awaited report to be made public, but is not ruling out using executive privilege to keep some parts under wraps.

In remarks to Fox News’ Catherine Herridge and Alex Pappas, President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani said Monday “a selective release would be problematic.”

“We prefer that as much of the report as possible is public,” Giuliani told Fox News.

Earlier Monday, Bloomberg reported that Trump could block portions of the report, and the White House could try to use executive privilege to do so.

Giuliani told Fox News there are no plans to block the report, which is reportedly in its final stages, but he would not rule it out either.

“We will enter that review process with no preconceptions about blocking material, but until our team reviews the report, we cannot waive executive privilege,” he said.

Mueller, who has been investigating Russia’s interference in the 2016 election for a year and a half, is only required to hand over his report to the leaders of the Justice Department, but Democrats are expected to push for a public release.

“Donald Trump never met with any Russians, and the Moscow property deal never came to anything,” he said of a Trump Tower project at the time. “There was no collusion and even if there was, collusion is not a crime. We believe any obstruction argument against President Trump will fail.”

He also blasted ex-FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page over missing anti-Trump texts.

“The real obstruction is the loss of text messages between FBI agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page that would show whether Strzok’s political bias infected the Mueller investigation,” he told Fox News.

  1. Just yesterday I read a report that I wish I knew how to share here concerning the Uranium One deal and the Clintons and Mueller’s involvement in it! It was the most startling and damning evidence against them all I’ve ever seen – and I am at a total loss as to why this “investigation” has been ALLOWED to happen with something as dire as that being swept under the rug!!! I shared it on my FB page and begged everyone who read it to do the same. Somehow, this has to be brought to light.
