But according to multiple reports, people at the White House are seriously concerned about what the Mueller report, even in redacted and pre-spun form, will show when it's released to the public this Thursday.
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," @jonkarl reports on @ThisWeekABC https://t.co/2gNCrsGh2B pic.twitter.com/do39TZFBZz

Even if the report doesn't end up containing any bombshells about how Trump behaved behind the scenes toward Comey, Mueller, Putin, and others, it will hopefully answer THE question of the 2016 election: WTF was going on?

Amazingly, more than two years after Trump won the White House, we still don't know. But an entire section of the Mueller report is allegedly devoted to this topic.
