Mueller colleague says Trump will hate full Russia report: It will ‘look more like obstruction’

At least one Lawyer who had experience with special counsel Robert Mueller anticipated that the full report will show most Americans President Donald Trump obstructed justice more than what the law actually demands.


Axios reported some of the claims that Trump has been fully exonerated might not be what Americans see when the report is released.

One lawyer who has dealt with the Mueller team in the past, told Axios, "My guess is, it's probably going to be when it's put all together by Mueller's team, it's going to look more like obstruction to the casual eye than it might be [legal]."

The White House has already been briefed on the report, and after, Trump changed his tune from wanting to release it to say it was a waste of time and people should move on. The report should be released this week, but will have redactions.

Mueller's report is nearly 400 pages long and has not been released yet to anyone. Some legal scholars have noted that it doesn't generally take 400 pages to say someone is innocent.

Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani said that he has prepared a 140-page counter-report to the Mueller findings. Giuliani has not seen the report, however, so it's unclear how he was able to craft 140 pages responding to a report that he hasn't read.
