After the “Trump colluded with Russia” narrative went bust following the special counsel concluding its investigation without recommending further indictments, the media needed to pivot. They decided to echo Democrat concerns that the full report must include some evidence against Trump and needs to be released – and insinuating that President Donald Trump would block it from public view.
Bolduan then asked if White House lawyers would see the report before it was released to the public. Graham said he didn’t think so, since they weren’t invoking executive privilege.
“The president said, “release it,’” Graham reiterated. “He reinforced that last night that, you know, just release it.”

The Barr report that will remove classified material will be available within weeks, not months according to the Justice Department.
CNN reported earlier this month that “multiple sources familiar with the matter” claimed the White House expected to see Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report before it’s provided to congressmen and the American public. Based on what Graham said, it appears that, once again, CNN’s anonymous sources were wrong.
