Answering questions from journalists at the White House on Wednesday, Trump said he had no idea when the report would be released, adding, "no collusion, no collusion" and "we'll see if it's fair". In fact, Trump's now openly demanding that the "ridiculous" report, which Mueller is expected to deliver to Attorney General William Barr "any day now", be released to the public.

"We will see what the report says".

Haberman replied that the Mueller investigation was a concern, but that Trump and his advisors were beginning to believe it wouldn't be that "damning".

"I just won an election with 63 million votes or so, 63 million, and I'm saying to myself, wait a minute, I just won one of the greatest elections of all time in the history of this country, and now I have someone writing a report that never got a vote?" he said. "Let people see it - that's up to the attorney general".

During his confirmation hearing in January, Barr said his goal "will be to provide as much transparency as I can consistent with the law", regarding Mueller's final report, but stopped short of promising to release it. "So explain that, because my voters don't get it and I don't get it".

Gohmert accused Rosenstein and his "henchmen" in the Justice Department of consistently "undermining" former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"Let it come out, and let people see it", the president said.

Lisa Page, former special counsel to then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, left the Mueller probe before texts with Strzok emerged, revealing strong animus against Trump. Now somebody's going to write a report, who never got a vote. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff warned last month he will "subpoena the report, we will bring Bob Mueller in to testify before Congress, we will take it to court if necessary", in order to obtain the document.

"I got 63 million more, 63 million votes and now somebody just writes a report". "So you know, I-so what it is-now, let's see whether or not it's legit".

"But it's sort of an awesome thing that when you had a great victory, somebody comes in, does a report out of nowhere, tell me how that makes sense, who never got a vote, who the day before he was retained to become special counsel, I told him he would be working at the FBI", Trump said. "And I don't get it".

Trump's full response to reporters before boarding Marine One for OH was contradictory at times, with the president saying the public deserves to see the report while adding that it was up to Barr.
