Mueller report on Russia probe expected to be 'anti-climatic,' according to insiders

Insiders have claimed that Mueller's forthcoming report on the Russia probe is “almost certain to be anti-climactic.”

ABC News chief Washington correspondent Jonathan Karl said on Sunday that his sources “interacting with” special counsel Robert Mueller’s team say the report will fall short of "expectations of a bombshell."

Mueller's report is due to be soon made public and will reveal the special counsel's findings, if any, during the team's investigation into allegations that Donald Trump's election campaign colluded with Russian agents.

President Trump describes Mueller's Russia probe as a "political witch hunt."

Karl revealed what his sources allegedly told him during ABC’s “This Week” on Sunday.

A partial transcript is as follows:

KARL: "What I am getting is that this is all building up to the Mueller report and raising expectations of a bombshell report.

"And there have been expectations that have been building, of course, for over a year on this.

"But people who are closest to what Mueller has been doing, interacting with the special counsel caution me that this report is almost certain to be anti-climactic.

"If you look at what the FBI was investigating in that New York Times report, you look at what they were investigating, Mueller did not go anywhere with that investigation.

"He has been writing his report in real time through these indictments and we have seen nothing from Mueller on the central question of, was there any coordination, collusion, with the Russians in the effort to meddle in the elections?

"Or was there even any knowledge on the part of the president or anybody in his campaign with what the Russians were doing, there’s been no indication of that …"

STEPHANOPOULOS: "They hadn’t laid that out yet in the indictments but how do things like the Trump Tower meeting with Russians, Don Jr., Paul Manafort, Paul Manafort giving polling data to Ukrainian oligarchs, the pursuit of a Trump Tower in Moscow.

"How does that fit into this theory?"

KARL: "What we’ve certainly seen over and over again is the people around the president, first of all, have been willing to lie to investigators and had their own dealings with Russians, had their own agendas with Russians.

"And Manafort was trying to get paid for his work on behalf of Ukraine.

"Flynn had his own dealings. But it is not added up to anything of the central question, again, was there anybody – was the Trump campaign aware of or coordinating with the Russians in their effort to meddle with the election.

"So far there’s been nothing on that and I’m led to believe don’t expect there’s going to be any."
