WASHINGTON, March 20 (KUNA)- US President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he has no problem that the report of Special Investigator Robert Mueller comes out for people to see it.
"Let it come out. Let people see it," Trump told reporters on the South Lawn, ahead of his departure to Ohio.
"Let's see if it's legit (legitimate)," he said, noting that he does not know when Mueller will issue the final report on his long-running probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia's effort to interfere in the election.
But he said he does not "mind" if the public see the report.
The US President also voiced confidence in Attorney General William Barr, saying, "It's up to the Attorney General. We have a very good Attorney General, a very highly respected man. We'll see what happens." He reiterated that "but it is sort of interesting that a man [Mueller] out of the blue just rights a report." Trump spoke about his "tremendous victory" in elections and his accomplishments as president, saying that it is "ridiculous" for Mueller to write the report. "But, I want to see the report," he said.
