When Special Counsel Robert Mueller finishes writing up the findings from his investigation, which could be as soon as February, President Donald Trump may wield his executive privilege to try to keep portions of it from release to Congress and the public.
According to a Monday Bloomberg report, Democrats will almost certainly fight back if Trump employs that tactic, sending the issue to court.
Per Bloomberg, Mueller does have recourse he could take to circumvent Trump’s hypothetical attempt to suppress his findings. He could indict Trump, testify before Congress himself or have a grand jury make a presentment, which is a report without a criminal charge.
