The Mueller report will do nothing but "further entrench" opinions already held about the Russia probe, according to Fox News contributor and former congressman Trey Gowdy.

Appearing on "America's Newsroom" Wednesday, Gowdy, a former federal prosecutor, said that he believes few, if any, people will change their mind about Mueller's investigation after the report is released to Congress and the public on Thursday.

"This is going to be an evidentiary summary without a verdict," Gowdy said. "Tomorrow's gonna do nothing but validate what your previously held conviction is, which is why I'm not a fan of releasing the report."

He lamented that the probe into Russia's election meddling devolved into a partisan, Democrat-versus-Republican issue, because this should be a unifying "American issue."

"If you don't like Trump, you're gonna seize on something," Gowdy said. "Someone's gonna seize on something they consider to be 'evidence,' and they're going to use that to extrapolate and try to reach a conclusion. That's why you need a jury that's impartial, and we don't have that."

"I have low expectations. It's gonna do nothing except further entrench people as to where they are today with their positions."
