The U.S. has waited a year to hear what special counsel Robert Mueller concludes about the 2016 election, meddling by the Russians and – most of all – what Donald Trump did or didn't do.Though Mueller is expected to report his findings to Rosenstein, there's no requirement that those conclusions be made public.A forthcoming decision by Trump and his lawyers on whether to sit for an interview with Mueller, who is examining whether the president sought to obstruct justice, could hasten the conclusion of the investigation with regard to the White House. What happens next is unclear, though Mueller has been closely conferring along the way with Rosenstein, the No. 2 Justice Department official who appointed him special counsel.The regulations require Mueller to report his findings confidentially to Rosenstein, who would then decide how and whether to share them with Congress.Spokespeople for Mueller and the Justice Department declined to comment on the options under consideration.The easiest avenue for public disclosure in any criminal investigation is an indictment in which prosecutors lay out their allegations.
