- President Donald Trump, in a rambling interview with Fox Business Network's Maria Bartiromo, where he complains about the fact that neither Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein nor special counsel Robert Mueller were elected, and yet they will be able to judge whether his actions abided with the law.
Several White House staffers, including press secretary Sarah Sanders and deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley, were huddling on the patio of Mar-a-Lago as the special counsel's report was delivered to Attorney General William Barr, a source with knowledge said.
Mueller did not speak publicly during his almost two-year investigation into Trump and his team.
Comey said the publication of Mueller's report should demonstrate to Trump "that the United States has a justice system that works because there are people who believe in it and rise above personal interest and tribalism". One element of the investigation is whether Trump's firing of Comey amounted to obstruction of justice.
However, I get the impression that Barr is going to play Mueller's report "by the book", disclosing only as much as Justice Department rules and protocol call for.
Mueller, a former FBI director, had been examining since 2017 whether Trump's campaign conspired with Moscow to try to influence the election and whether the Republican president later unlawfully tried to obstruct his investigation.
Trump rails against 'husband from hell' George Conway
If Kellyanne Conway hoped her simple statement would end the fight between her boss and her husband, she was badly mistaken. Trump calls George Conway 'a total loser!' She did not immediately return a call from the Washington Post seeking comment.
The prospect of no further indictments could present a massive boon to President Trump and many of those surrounding him.
"Let's just put on the screen everybody who's been found guilty or already indicted in the Mueller investigations".
Presidential candidates Senator Cory Booker, D-N.J. and Senator Kamala Harris, D-Cal. also joined in on Twitter with similar insistent demands that the report be public.
On Capitol Hill, Cohen testified publicly last month, accusing Trump of directing him to issue hush-money payments to two women alleging affairs, which Trump has denied, and alleging Trump committed financial fraud. Barr also informed Congress in a letter that the investigation was finished.
