Special counsel Robert Mueller's final report will be made public, attorney Neal Katyal explained on Wednesday.

Katyal served as acting Solicitor General during the Obama administration. In a previous Department of Justice role, Katyal drafted the DOJ's rules governing special counsel investigations.

He explained how the regulations were written with "a safeguard to prevent a cover-up" that could stymie Trump's hope for a get-out-of-jail-free card.
