Former DOJ official John Yoo is predicting that the Mueller report will actually clear President Trump and said while he hopes the report will be released but there is no legal obligation to do so.

According to The Daily Caller:

University of California, Berkeley law professor and former Deputy Assistant Attorney General John Yoo predicted Monday that the upcoming Mueller report will likely “clear” President Donald Trump of any violations of federal law.

Yoo’s analysis came during a larger conversation with Fox News anchor Sandra Smith about whether or not the report will or should be made public.

Responding to Smith’s question about the report being released, Yoo expressed his hope that it would while adding that whether the report legally has to be released is another question.

“I think Congressman Schiff is free to issue as many subpoenas as he likes but I think he is mistaken if he thinks he understands Attorney General Bill Barr,” said Yoo. “Bill Barr is put there to defend the institution of the Justice Department and the Justice Department doesn’t have a legal obligation to release the Mueller report in public.”

Yoo also stated that the Justice Department wouldn't even need to respond to Schiff's subpoena due to there being no legal obligation.
