Robert Mueller’s report on the Russian hacking of the 2016 election is possibly done. Indicators say it’s ready to be released. Now, the question is whether or not the report will be made public. According to President Trump, that decision will be made by new Attorney General William Barr.
It’s a no-win situation for President Trump if the report is a bad one for him. If he has it released, Democrats will pounce. If he doesn’t have it released, Democrats will pounce.
On the other hand, if the report can be used to exonerate the President and his 2016 campaign, then releasing it will be a positive for the most part. There will certainly be points made in the report that will give Democrats and mainstream media reason to cry foul, but if there was no collusion as the President has been saying for two years now, then the overall effects of the report would be minimized.
One way or the other, getting it out to the public will start the process of ending the controversy well before the 2020 election. Assuming there was no collusion, this will be an overall win once the frantic media is done discussing it.
