Giuliani: ‘I’m Sure We Will’ Block Parts of Mueller’s Report

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani says the president’s legal team likely plans to use executive privilege to block the release of parts of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on the Russia investigation. In comments to The New Yorker published Monday, Giuliani said Trump’s original legal team had secured a deal with Mueller allowing the White House to object to the public disclosure of information in the report. Asked whether the White House would indeed object to the report, Giuliani said, “I’m sure we will.” The report, a conclusion of the investigation to be filed once Mueller’s team has completed its work, will be submitted to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has the option of releasing it to both Congress and the wider public. Giuliani, who has aggressively sought to undermine Mueller since joining Trump’s legal team earlier this year, also said he already has 45 pages of a “counter-report” prepared to refute Mueller’s findings.
