John Dowd, President Donald Trump’s former lawyer, is calling the Mueller report “pure mischief” and “not fair,” believing that it will cause undue problems for the President.
“I haven’t read it, but it’s just wholly unnecessary,” he told the Daily Beast. “You just don’t need it. It’s pure mischief.”
“The trouble is, these special counsels inflate themselves, think they’re more important—and they’re not, in the scheme of things, and it ruptures the system of justice and it’s not fair,” he added. “To me, it’s a probe that’s tainted by politics and by hate, and I don’t like it.”
A redacted version of the report — the extent of the information withdrawn is yet to be seen — is slated for release on Thursday.
