President Donald Trump, yet to master a Twitter thread, buried a serious change of tone in his usual angry word salad about Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the Democrats: “…there should be no Mueller report.”

Up until now, Trump has pretty consistently insisted that he has nothing to fear from the Mueller report, saying that there’s “NO COLLUSION.” Just a few weeks ago, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: “We feel good about the fact that what we’ve said all along for last two years will be clear — there was no collusion.”
