Manatt’s Jack Quinn, a partner in the government and regulatory practice, spoke with CNN about special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election and the possibility that this report may be released in the near future.
Speaking with CNN’s Poppy Harlow and Jim Scuitto, Quinn detailed what is “required of [Mueller]” and what his report could potentially disclose.
“He is permitted to reveal almost everything if he deems it to be in the public interest to reveal it,” said Quinn. “The exceptions, of course, are classified material, material relating to ongoing investigations, [and] material that would implicate significant privacy interests on the part of people not being indicted.”
Quinn says he suspects the report will answer “core questions that initiated the Mueller investigation,” specifically involving alleged coordination between the United States and Russia in the election, and whether or not President Donald Trump or anyone close to him was involved in the coordination.
