“I have not seen the Mueller report. I have not read the Mueller report. I won. No collusion, no obstruction. I won,” Trump told reporters on the South Lawn before traveling to Texas.

“As far as I’m concerned I don’t care about the Mueller report. I've been totally exonerated,” the president said.

Attorney General William BarrWilliam Pelham BarrThe Hill's Morning Report - Trump trial begins with clashes, concessions Barr wrote 2018 memo contradicting Trump's claim that abuse of power is not impeachable Brent Budowsky: McConnell, Roberts and Trump on trial MORE raised eyebrows on Tuesday when he declined to answer a lawmaker’s question during a congressional hearing about whether he had given a copy of Mueller’s report to the White House or briefed officials on its contents. He said he expects to release a redacted copy “within a week.”

Democrats, and some Republicans, have pressured Barr to release the full report on Mueller’s investigation after he issued a four-page letter saying the special counsel did not find that Trump colluded with Russia’s election interference efforts in 2016 and did not determine if the president obstructed the probe.

Trump blasted the Mueller investigation as an “an attempted coup” and an act of “treason” by a group of lawyers and investigators “who truly hated Trump.”

The president has renewed his attacks on the special counsel probe in advance of the release of the broader Mueller report, which will give the public and Congress its first glimpse at the details of the two-year probe that shadowed Trump’s presidency.

Some Trump allies have been rattled by his victory lap over concerns that the full report could contain more damaging information than was included in Barr’s letter.
