US President Donald Trump, who has repeatedly blasted FBI Special Counselor Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation, appears to be absolutely confident of the outcome.
Trump has thrown his support to a bipartisan call by Congress for Mueller's report into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections to be made public.
On Thursday, the US House of Representatives voted in support of a nonbinding resolution calling on Attorney General William Barr to release Mueller's report to the general public. Since the resolution is nonbinding, Mueller, Trump and General Attorney Barr cannot be forced to release more of the report both to the Congress and the public, than required by the Justice Department and federal law.
Prior to the vote, some Democrats expressed their concern that the administration might try to keep the report secret, with the Attorney General exploiting legal loopholes to hide the report from the public — a move that Barr earlier denied.
