Senator Chuck Grassley said Tuesday that he believes Special Counsel Robert Mueller is just weeks away from finishing the report he was hired to produce, 21 months after his Russia probe began. Radio host Hugh Hewitt asked the Iowa Republican when he expected to see the report. 'Within a month, if we see it,' Grassley responded.
Grassley said he supports efforts in Congress that would force the Justice Department to release Mueller's findings about alleged links between Russian agents and Trump's 2016 campaign. Grassley told Hewitt on Tuesday that Mueller's final product should be a public document, with the exception of portions that impact 'national security and [the] privacy of individuals.'
He said he has found common cause with Connecticut Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a consistent Trump antagonist, who also wants transparency. The two are co-sponsoring a bill that would force the DOJ to hand the report over.
