Media is 'enemy of the people': Donald Trump

President Trump took a victory lap on Capitol Hill Tuesday emboldened by the end of the special counsel’s Russia probe even as Democrats demanded the release of Robert Mueller’s full report

U.S. President Donald Trump has hinted at possible payback for that his political enemies who did "evil" and "treasonous things", a day after the summary of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's report cleared him of colluding with Russian Federation to influence the 2016 presidential election, although it reached no conclusion on whether the president obstructed justice. "There are a lot of people out there that have done some very evil things, very bad things, I would say treasonous things against our country".

The conclusion of the investigation is likely just the beginning of the fight in Congress, with Democrats calling for the report to be released in full. "I promised him that I'm going to take a hard look at the FISA process and intelligence operation".

Questioned by reporters, Trump said he welcomed Mueller's results but complained he had been abused by the investigation occurring at all and taking too long.

The chairman of the House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, a Democrat, said on CNN on Sunday that he would "try to negotiate" with the Justice Department to obtain the full report, but the committee would issue subpoenas and litigate if needed.

First of all, Barr must make Mueller's entire report available to Congress. To dispel doubts in this respect, Barr needs to swiftly release as much of Mueller's report as possible.

"The president is saying he's been completely and totally exonerated by the report".

At the same time, Democrats will continue their investigations of the Trump-Russia connection, and other aspects of the president's finances and business practices, including his tax returns.

Paul Manafort, a former campaign manager of Mr Trump, and Michael Flynn, whom Mr Trump appointed as a national security adviser shortly after assuming office in January 2016, were amongst the top associates of the president arrested on Mr Mueller's findings.

Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, said his interest in the report as a member of the Senate's Banking Committee, is to read its conclusions on Russian interference and whether they merit additional sanctions on the government of President Vladimir Putin.

Trump said earlier Monday that the release of Mueller's report "wouldn't bother me at all" but that it was up to Barr. The question is whether the USA administration and Congress can move to resolve the ongoing confusion, with the closure of investigations into the affair by a special investigative counsel. This summary raises as may questions as it was supposed to answer.

He tweeted against the "mainstream media" as "corrupt and FAKE" for pushing the "Russian Collusion Delusion", previewing attacks on other opponents to come.

No one outside the Justice Department has yet seen the report, including the White House.
