Speaking to radio host Hugh Hewitt, Grassley also said the American people deserve transparency with respect to Mueller’s investigation into the Trump campaign and the phony allegations of Russian collusion.
“I don’t care what the report says. The public ought to know what their 25 or 35 million bought. And except for national security and privacy of individuals… everything else I think ought to be out.”
Business Insider states, “Grassley spokesman Taylor Foy said the senator’s estimates ‘weren’t based on any specific information, but rather growing media speculation and reports that it may be wrapping up.'”
On Jan. 28, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into the Trump campaign and Russia is nearing its end.
“The investigation is, I think, close to being completed and I hope that we can get the report from Mueller as soon as possible,” he said.
Whitaker made the statement during a press conference where the DOJ announced it was charging Chinese company Huawei and its CFO for stealing trade secrets.
Whitaker became Acting Attorney General in November and faced a barrage of criticism from liberals and Democrats who claimed he should recuse himself from the Mueller investigation because he had publicly criticized the probe in the past.
