Rudy Giuliani: Trump's lawyers should get chance to "correct" Mueller report

Rudy Giuliani: Trump's lawyers should get chance to

They're not God, after all.

The 20-minute interview continuously reveals an adamant Giuliani set on protecting one thing: executive privilege. Trump may still invoke executive privilege to block parts of the report from being released to Congress and the public.

We may finally have a concrete deadline for the Mueller report. "At the time, the special counsel had been digging into Manafort's finances and political work ahead of his trial".

Giuliani said the ball was now in the special counsel's court.

Trump is facing criminal investigations in Washington and NY. In an interview with Reuters, Giuliani said Mueller raised the possibility of follow-up questions but that the president's outside legal team told the special counsel before Christmas that Trump would not respond.

"Our collective understanding, the public's understanding of the Trump investigation [and] the Mueller investigation of Trump, has been focused to the past year and a half on the question of criminal obstruction", NYT reporter Michael Schmidt explained to MSNBC's Chris Hayes after the report was published. But the president's activities before and after Comey's firing in May 2017, particularly two instances in which Trump tied the Comey dismissal to the Russian Federation investigation, helped prompt the counterintelligence aspect of the inquiry, the people said.

Gabbard positioned herself as one of President Barack Obama's fiercest critics over his handling of the so-called Islamic State . She drew controversy when she met with Syrian president Bashar al-Assad in 2017 amidst the brutal civil war there.

The House Oversight and Reform Committee announced Thursday that Cohen will testify before that panel february 7, a little more than a month after the Democrats took the House majority.

"I have no concerns about Cohen at all because I can prove with very little effort that he is a total, complete and absolute liar", Giuliani told The Hill.

Now, Trump said Thursday before he left for Texas that he "didn't know anything about" Manafort's dealing with Kilimnik - or the fact that his campaign chairman shared polling data with the Russian.

"There is no legal protection of polling data".

According to the Times report, the inquiry was ultimately handed over to Robert Mueller. But Trump's behavior in the days around Comey's May 2017 firing, specifically two instances in which he seemed to tie Comey's ousting to the Russian Federation investigation, helped trigger the counterintelligence part of the investigation, according to the Times' sources.
