President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s report will show “no collusion” if it’s “honest.”
“It’s one of the greatest hoaxes ever perpetrated on this country,” he said of the Mueller investigation. “So I look forward to seeing the report. If it’s an honest report, it will say that. If it’s not an honest report it won’t.”
He also told reporters that he had not spoken with Attorney General Bill Barr about the report yet.
Reports surfaced earlier this week indicating the Mueller report would drop as early as next week, but a senior Justice Department official told reporters on Friday that it won’t be released by next week.
