It’s been nearly a month since Special Counsel Robert Muller concluded his Russia investigation and Attorney General Bill Barr released a measly 4-page and heavily partisan summary in an attempt to pacify the American public as well as members of Congress. However, the quick coverup by the Attorney General did very little to please anyone and actually raised more concerns than it provided answers. In fact, Congressional Democrats are still demanding the release of the report in its entirety.
The entire country has been left nervously wondering about the delay of the report’s release, and it’s looking like the White House has been pushing for the contents to remain out of the public eye because they’re worried about what’s in it.
ABC‘s John Karl tweeted, “The White House has been briefed on the Mueller report and ‘there is significant concern on the president’s team about what will be in this report,’ and ‘what worries them most is what Don McGahn told the special counsel.'”

McGahn previously served as an attorney for the president and just spoke out on his time within the White House last week, evidently causing those that still remain there to freak out a bit.
“I spent the last couple of years getting yelled at. And you may soon read about some of the more spirited debates I had with the president,” the attorney hinted.
Apparently, those that still work within the White House are pretty shaken up about the prospect of their inner workings being aired like dirty laundry — President Trump included.
Some have even speculated that Trump has been acting especially erratic and asshole-ish the last few days in an attempt to distract the public from the Mueller report. The Week even speculated that Donald is “purposefully escalating his language… expressly to enliven his base of supporters and to enrage his political rivals and the news media.”
Regardless of how panicky the White House is, they best get themselves prepared — a redacted version of the Mueller report is set to be released on Thursday, whether they like it or not. Wonder how they feel knowing everything is soon to come crashing down around them?
