ABC’s Jon Karl: People Close to Mueller Say His Report ‘Certain to Be Anti-Climactic’
Speaking on the latest report from the New York Times on President Donald Trump’s relationship with the FBI, ABC’s Jon Karl told George Stephanopoulos people who are close to Robert Mueller tell him the report of the investigation is “certain to be anti-climatic” and not have any bombshells.
The New York Times reported the FBI opened a serious investigation into whether Trump was a Russian agent after he fired FBI Director James Comey.
“But what I am getting is — this is all building up to the Mueller report and raising expectations of a bombshell report. And there were investigations that were building of course over a year on this. People closest to what Mueller is doing, interactive with the special counsel, cautioned me, that this report is certain to be anti-climatic,” Karl said.
“That if you look at what the FBI was investigating in that New York Times report, look what they were investigating, Mueller did not go anywhere with that investigation,” he continued. “He’s been writing his report in real-time though these the indictments. We’ve seen nothing from Mueller on the central question of was there coordination, collusion, with the Russians in the effort to meddle in the elections? Or was there even knowledge with the president or anybody in the campaign, with what the Russians were doing.”
