After the completion of the Russia-investigation by special investigator Robert Mueller, U.S. President Donald Trump shows an unusually restrained. Trump began the weekend with a game of Golf in Florida, as passengers reported to journalists.
The motorcade of the President arrived, therefore, on Saturday morning (local time) on Trumps Golf course in West Palm Beach. The Republicans has so far said nothing that Mueller has handed over its confidential report to the Ministry of justice.
This is unusual: Trump has expressed in the past in detail and usually in a very derogatory about Mueller's investigation – usually by means of a short message on Twitter.
Ball is up to the Minister of justice
trump's spokeswoman Sarah Sanders announced on Friday, the next steps Minister William Barr would be justice. You expect the process to take its course. The White house had not received the report and had not been informed of its contents.
Barr has to decide what information he wants from the report to Congress and to the Public.
Mueller was determined by may 2017 as to whether the alleged Russian influence on the American Try-the presidential campaign of 2016 was collusion between the Trump camp and representatives of Russia – and whether Trump has been hindered by the dismissal of FBI Director James Comey and the justice system. The investigations have led to more than 30 charges, including six people from Trumps environment – for example, his former election campaign chief, Paul Manafort and his Ex-security adviser, Michae Flynn.
Democrats call for transparency
The two leading Democrats in Congress called on the Minister to make the report public. The Americans had a right to the truth, it was said in a joint communication from the Chairman of the house of representatives, Nancy Pelosi, and democratic whip in the Senate, Chuck Schumer. The White house should not interfere in the decision of which parts of the report that Barr make out in public. Trump and his lawyers should not be granted to "preview" on Mueller's investigation results.
trump's camp is hoping, however, that the report exonerated the President and the Democrats are thus robbed of their arguments. (ij/sda)
