Believe this one when you see it, but Donald Trump is supposedly willing to have the full Mueller report released to the public. Not that he’s going to do it, but if his hand-picked attorney general did it, Trump would be okay with it.
Trump is “more than happy for any of this stuff to come out because he knows exactly what did and what didn’t happen and now frankly the rest of America knows,” according to White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “They know there was no collusion, they know there was no obstruction and it’s a complete and total exoneration of the president.”
So … because it’s a “complete and total exoneration,” Trump is willing to have the public see the report his own attorney general quoted as saying “does not exonerate him”?
However, “more than happy” doesn’t extend to Trump releasing the report himself. It’s just that if Attorney General William Barr, chosen in large part for his hostility to the investigation, chooses to release it, Trump’s public position is that he wouldn’t mind. As for Trump’s private position as communicated directly to Barr, we’ll just have to guess.
Again: Believe it when you see it, where that second “it” is the full, uncensored Mueller report.
