Maher then asked whether Democrats had focused too intently on Mueller's investigation, saying that he believes Trump is a "traitor," regardless of what Mueller's investigation finds.

“Did the Democrats put too much trust in the Mueller report?” Maher asked. “I don’t need the Mueller report to know he’s a traitor. I have a TV.”

Maher's comments came hours after Mueller submitted his investigation's final report Friday to Attorney General William Barr. 

The decision to release the report's findings rests with Barr, who has been coy on how much of the report's findings he will make public. 

Republicans have seized on reports that Mueller will not recommend further indictments, suggesting that the president has been right to denounce Mueller's probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia and possible obstruction of justice as a “witch hunt.”
