In the last week, several news organizations have reported that Mueller could file his report on his investigation with the Department of Justice as early as next week.

Mueller’s investigation has long drawn Trump’s ire. The president declared in November that his personal legal team would compile a “major Counter Report” to Mueller’s findings.
