Trump says public should see 'ridiculous' Mueller report

"Let it come out, let people see it. Let's see whether or not it's legit", Trump said, the Associated Press reports.

Gohmert added that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein "should be out" and must be replaced by someone Attorney General Bill Barr trusts.

"It's sort of interesting that a man just writes a report", Trump said of the Special Counsel, who has been hard at work for 22 months and three days investigating Russia's attack on the US electoral system.

He suggested in remarks to reporters Wednesday that Mueller's appointment was inappropriately made by the Justice Department and that Mueller arbitrarily decided "out of the blue" to put together the report as part of his two-year probe into Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election and possible coordination with the Trump campaign.

As he has before, Trump questioned the legitimacy of Mueller's investigation.

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.

"Let people see it. I have no idea when it's going to be released", Trump said of Mueller's report, expected soon as he's believed to be wrapping up his investigation. "So explain that, because I don't get it and my voters don't get it", Trump said.

THE FACTS: The attorney general at the time, Jeff Sessions didn't lack courage in the matter; he lacked standing.

Speaking to the media ahead of a trip to OH, the president continued to lambaste the investigation into Russian intervention in the 2016 election - calling it "ridiculous" - but said he wants to see its findings nonetheless. I just won an election with 63 million votes or so.

Lemire and Jalonick report that according to the Trump advisors they interviewed, the president plans to be very outspoken if Mueller's report is "underwhelming" and will "use Twitter and interviews to gloat over the findings, complain about the probe's cost and depict the entire investigation as an attempt to obstruct his agenda".

Mueller was appointed to handle the Russian Federation investigation in May 2017 after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, who had been overseeing the effort. "And now somebody just writes a report?" And you know who will want to see it? You know better than anybody there's no collusion. There was no obstruction.

"But it's sort of an wonderful thing that when you had a great victory, somebody comes in, does a report out of nowhere, tell me how that makes sense, who never got a vote, who the day before he was retained to become special counsel, I told him he would be working at the FBI", Trump said. I don't think so. "And I don't get it".
