Trump team should be allowed to "correct" final Mueller report, says Giuliani

BEDMINSTER TOWNSHIP NJ- NOVEMBER 20 President-elect Donald Trump greets Rudy Giuliani at the clubhouse at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in Bedminster Township N.J. on Sunday Nov. 20 2016

During the campaign, FBI officials were troubled by Trump's ties to Russia, and opened an investigation into the campaign in August 2016, two months after the Trump Tower meeting between campaign senior officials and Russian surrogates.

On May 11, 2017, Trump told NBC, "when I made a decision to just do it, I said to myself, I said, 'you know, this Russian Federation thing with Trump and Russian Federation is a made-up story". We have reserved executive privilege and we have a right to assert it.

Reiterating that Trump was innocent of all claims, Giuliani said that it was important to protect executive privilege but admitted it would be tough to withhold parts of Mueller's final report.

However, Giuliani hoping to "correct" the report is a legally dubious statement.

"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.

As for Manafort, two pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs were the intended recipients of United States polling data that Manafort admitted to sharing with a Russian during the 2016 presidential race, CNN reported. NBC News reported that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein plans to step down after Mueller completes the investigation and expects that he will be able to leave by March.

Friday's New York Time's report said the intelligence officials had to consider whether the president's actions had constituted a "threat to national security".

Cohen will testify publicly before a House committee next month in a hearing that could serve as the opening salvo in a promised Democratic effort to greater scrutinize Trump, his conflicts of interest and his ties to Russian Federation. "I think he's very well aware politically".

Court documents submitted by Paul Manafort's lawyers accidentally revealed that, while serving as Trump campaign chairman, Manafort handed over internal campaign polling data to Konstantin V. Kilimnik, a Russian businessman linked to the GRU intelligence agency GRU. You can give it to anyone.

McCabe said he believed Comey was sacked because he refused to give in to Trump's requests to kill the probe. The Times says it's unclear whether Mueller is still pursuing the counterintelligence angle. "Collusion is a nonlegal term", he said, adding that giving polling data to the Russians "would probably fit into that kind of a category".
