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

Trump lawyer Rudy 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.

Giuliani went farther than any of Trump's legal advisers in demanding the right to review the report into claims of collusion with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, The Hill reported.

The former mayor-turned-lawyer for President Donald Trump insisted to The Hill that "As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you - so we can correct it if they're wrong".

"Of course we have to see [the report] before it goes to Congress", Giuiani said.

As the Mueller investigation enters its 20th month, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani is hoping he can make his own adjustments to "correct" the prosecutor's final report. "The only way we can assert it is if we see what is in the report".

CNN also reported that investigators are examining whether conflicting public statements by Trump and his team would be considered an attempt to obstruct justice.

But there's nothing criminal about it, ' Giuliani said. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him, announced that he will be stepping down soon, later clarifying he would stay until Mueller finished his work.

It is not clear when the special counsel will wrap up his probe.

Giuliani also expressed no worry that longtime Trump lawyer Michael Cohen - who he has termed a liar, and who has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about a Trump Moscow tower project as well as campaign violations related to hush payments to women - will be testifying publicly before Democratic-run committees.

"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.

"There is no legal protection of polling data".

"The crime is the conspiracy, the agreement".
