His comment is probably worth taking with a large pinch of salt.
This is not the first time Karl has downplayed the contents of the coming report from Mueller.
'I don't mind. I mean, frankly, I told the House, if you want, let them see it, ' he said of a unanimous vote on the House to make the prosecutor's findings public.
Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the chair of the House Intelligence Committee, has been at the forefront of Democratic and Congressional oversight of President Donald Trump's ties to Russian Federation and the ongoing special counsel investigation.
TRUMP: "I know that he's conflicted and I know that his best friend is Comey, who's a bad cop". And you know who I want to see it?
Comey will be introduced by moderator Dick Henning, who founded the series, and will share remarks and answer audience questions from 8 p.m.to 9:30 p.m. Mueller was not a candidate for president in that race. It was a symbolic action created to pressure Barr into releasing as much information as possible.
The President's sincerity is also called into question by a tweet last weekend that appeared to signal he was more interested in going through the motions of accountability than adopting it as a practice. "Play along with the game!"
"Again, I say, a deputy, because of the fact that the attorney general didn't have the courage to do it himself, a deputy that's appointed appoints another man to write a report", he said.
"My voters don't get it and I don't get it", he said of the Mueller probe.
He turned up the heat on the prosecutor expected to release a report in the Russian Federation investigation any day on Wednesday as he left the White House for OH, saying Robert Mueller is "conflicted" because they had a "nasty" business transaction once. "That's up to the attorney general".
Special counsel is not an elected position, and Mueller, former head of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has not sought elective office.
Assessing the battle to come is also hard because no one knows what form Mueller's conclusions will take. Comey claimed that Trump asked him to shut down an investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
Whatever is in the report, we may not get all the juicy details that were uncovered over the past 22 months - at least not right away. That's up to the attorney general.
Of Mueller's team, most worked at the Department of Justice or Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters during the Obama administration.

"I would think it would be more descriptive, more accurate to quit calling it the Mueller report whenever it comes out".
Trump taunted the special counsel, suggesting he is "look [ing] forward" to seeing what Mueller came up with, while also dismissively describing it as an illegitimate effort to undermine his presidency by unelected bureaucrats. The whole thing, Trump declared, is "Totally illegal!"
The struggle over disclosure is already getting a preview.
But Trump again questioned the grounds for the almost two-year-old investigation, which is also examining whether the president himself criminally obstructed the probe.
On Twitter, he said that DOJ is "laying the groundwork to withhold evidence from the American people" which "would pose a great danger to our country".
"We will be aggressively responding", the official added.
The White House has also missed a deadline to provide documents to the House Judiciary Committee.
So far, the charges Mueller has brought against Trump associates have mostly been unrelated to the campaign or "process" violations incurred during the special counsel's investigation.
Congressional investigations also are swirling around the president. "That's up to the Attorney General ... and we'll see what happens". "And I don't get it", he said. That's a tremendous victory.
TRUMP: "I got 306 electoral votes against 223".
"Mueller is required to produce a confidential report that at a minimum explains decisions about who was and was not prosecuted", AP reports.
The President spoke rapidly, offering new talking points in his anti-Mueller meltdown.
"He's just not worth it", Pelosi said in a Washington Post interview earlier this month.
He drew criticism from both Democrats and Republicans for his role in investigating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails during her 2016 presidential run.
In December, 80% of self-identified Democrats said they were in favor of impeachment - that now stands at 68%, a 12-point dip.
