"All the way to the attorney general," Trump replied.
When Brennan asked if he "would have a problem" if the results of Mueller's investigation became public, Trump said: "That depends on the attorney general, I do not know, it depends, I have no idea what he's going to say."
Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker He said Last week, the investigation conducted by Mueller's team of federal prosecutors on Russia's interference in the 2016 elections and the possible coordination between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin was "close to completion."
The Senate Judiciary Committee also last week delayed a vote on Trump's candidate to head the Department of Justice, William Barr, until February 7.
Whitaker has previously criticized Mueller's investigation, and Barr's nomination is being criticized by Senate Democrats for a memo he wrote to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein last year criticizing the special lawyer's investigation.
