People close to the president have been left reeling in the wake of the release of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report, according to Vanity Fair.


Despite finding no evidence that Trump willfully colluded with Russian operatives, Mueller’s report outlines 10 episodes of potential obstruction of justice.

Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman said that while “it took awhile for the report’s full impact to sink in,” the devastating truth of the report later became clear to people in Trump’s orbit.

“A normal person would have been indicted for this,” a Republican close to the White House told reporter Sherman.

“The obstruction stuff is pretty damning,” added former Trump campaign adviser Sam Nunberg.

Trump on Friday lashed out at the Mueller report, claiming some of the findings were “fabricated.” He labelled the investigative report as “crazy.” The president has previously claimed that the report “exonerated” him.

Sherman described Trump’s latest attacks on Mueller as “an unmistakeable sign of the devastation.”

A former West Wing official told Vanity Fair that “Trump stinks,” adding that the “report gives everyone a better whiff of the odor.”
