Former Top White House Lawyer: ‘Strong Possibility’ Mueller Report Will Leak, AG Won’t Authorize Public Release

March 22, 2019

WASHINGTON — Ty Cobb, former lawyer in the White House who handled the Russia probe, predicted that the final Mueller report would not be made public but there is a “strong possibility” that it will leak.

Cobb also doubts that members of Congress will be able to review the full Mueller report.

“No, I think that’s totally up to the attorney general and the president. I mean, there are executive privilege issues. I mean, if Congress sees it, the whole world will ultimately hear all about it,” Cobb said.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s final report was submitted to the Justice Department on Friday.
