When it comes to the Mueller investigation, Trump is being very transparent. He fully backs the effort to make the final report available to the public.
FOX News reports:
Trump backs call for Mueller report to be made public: ‘Play along with the game!’
President Trump on Saturday backed bipartisan calls in Congress for FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian interference in the 2016 election to be made public.
“Play along with the game!” the president told Republicans.
“On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency,” he tweeted. “Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter.”
The House voted on Thursday in support of a nonbinding resolution to encourage Attorney General William Barr to release the report, amid continuing concerns in some quarters that it won’t be made public. Four Republican lawmakers voted present.
Since the measure is nonbinding, Mueller, Barr and Trump cannot be forced to release more information to Congress and the public than the Justice Department and federal law require. Republicans were quick to point out – despite their support for the resolution – that because the resolution does not have the force of law, it had little sway over whether or not the report is released to the public.
It sounds like he’s not too worried. Probably because he knows there won’t be anything in it.
Here’s his tweet:
On the recent non-binding vote (420-0) in Congress about releasing the Mueller Report, I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency. Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter. Play along with the game!

Hopefully, this will all be finished soon.
Mueller’s busy week offers new signs his report is coming soon
The Mueller probe appears to be in the home stretch.
Some Trump aides and advisers have been making that claim for more than a year, with little basis. But the signs are mounting that it’s finally happening.
Several came in what was an unusually busy week for Robert Mueller’s investigation into 2016 Russian election interference, with multiple clues that the special counsel’s work is finishing with a final report to the Justice Department.
This farce has gone on for long enough. It’s time to wrap it up.
