On Wednesday, Former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Preet Bharara suggested that President Donald Trump’s latest actions show that he really cares about the findings in special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
While talking to reporters on the South Lawn, Trump said that the public should have the opportunity to see the full Mueller report.
“Let it come out. Let people see it — that’s up to the attorney general,” Trump said.
“I don’t think it says anything about what Donald Trump wants and what he might instruct Bill Barr to do if he thinks it’s appropriate,” Bharara said. “We heard him time and time again say that he has no problem with something and then he does nothing. He said for months, everybody will remember, that he had no problem sitting down with Bob Mueller and answering questions. He said it was up to his lawyers.”
Trump never sat down with Mueller and blamed it on his lawyers. He also answered written questions.
Adding, “There are times when Donald Trump realizes he sounds defensive and he is afraid and running from something. He will say things like, ‘I don’t care, and tt doesn’t bother me’ when it does. I don’t think it’s any evidence of anything that might happen in the future.”

Joe Biden apologizes for ‘partisan lynching’ comments about Bill Clinton’s impeachment
Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday apologized for comments he made saying impeachment could be viewed as a "partisan lynching."
The comments from a 1998 interview were reported after Biden said it was "abhorrent" and "despicable" for President Donald Trump to refer to impeachment as a lynching.
"Even if the President should be impeached, history is going to question whether or not this was just a partisan lynching or whether or not it was something that in fact met the standard, the very high bar, that was set by the founders as to what constituted an impeachable offense," Biden said in 1998.
