Three months into the job, however, it’s not clear what if anything investigators may uncover about the president, who has repeatedly denied any improper contacts with people in Russia and has called the special counsel probe “a witch hunt.”

“They’re investigating something that never happened,” Trump told reporters last week. “There was no collusion between us and Russia. In fact, the opposite. Russia spent a lot of money on fighting me.”

Moreover, even if authorities uncover damaging information about Trump or anyone else in the White House, there are serious questions about whether that material will ever be made public, short of an indictment or impeachment.
