Trump Claims He Has Not Read ‘Total Waste of Time’ Mueller Report

Is Trump's net worth $10bn or $3.1bn

Allegations this week that the US Justice chief downplayed serious evidence of illegal obstruction by Trump in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's final report are fuelling demands that he release the entire, unexpurgated document to Congress.

The department said Attorney General William Barr must strike confidential information from the almost 400-page document as reports surfaced in the news media that members of Mueller's team were unhappy with the way Barr had characterized its main conclusions.

"If we give the Democrats all 400 pages unredacted that's not going to be the end of the inquiry", Mulvaney said. He also said Mueller declined to prosecute or exonerate Trump on the question of obstruction of justice.

"There's no way those two good lawyers would have written that kind of letter if there's any issue", Giuliani said on "Face the Nation" Sunday, referring to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who authored the four-page summary of Mueller's conclusions.

While Donald Trump does the happy dance and crows that he's been "completely and totally exonerated" for all we know the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker may have been exonerated as well, or maybe not.

The New York Times and the Washington Post reported that some investigators were unhappy with the way Barr had described their findings, in a sign of tensions between some members of Mueller's team and administration officials overseeing the report's release.

US President Donald Trump was a vocal critic of the investigation into his campaign.

Barr said he was continuing to work with Mueller's office on redactions to the report so that it could be released to Congress and the public.

Asked if the full report might have evidence that Mr. Trump attempted to obstruct justice, Giuliani said he is "confident there'll be no evidence of anything really bad" because there would've already been leaks to the press if Mueller's team had gathered any.

Last month Mueller finished his investigation into Russia's alleged cooperation with the Trump campaign during the 2016 election. "We are very hopeful the attorney general will do the right thing here and make everything public that can lawfully be made public". Under the federal rules of criminal procedure, government officials are not allowed to share material from grand jury proceedings. Claims were made that he colluded with Russian Federation during the election, in which Trump beat rival Hillary Clinton to the presidency. The Department of Justice will continue to defend the long-established tradition of protecting grand jury information, " Laco said.

Many Democrats and legal observers see Barr as an improper actor in the handling of the Mueller report.
