President Trump will be in Vietnam next week for a second summit with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un. It was unlikely newly minted Attorney General Bill Barr would allow the report to be released while he is overseas.
When asked about the potential for the Mueller probe to wrap up sometime soon, President Trump said from the Oval Office Friday the final report will show no collusion during the 2016 presidential campaign.
