President Donald Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani said in a recent interview Trump's legal team might cite executive privilege to keep special counsel Robert Mueller's final report on the investigation into Russian election interference from the public.
Giuliani told The New Yorker in an interview released in the Sept. 10 issue, he is "sure" the Trump administration will take issue with the report from being made public, noting the president's original legal team reached an agreement with Mueller's team that allows the White House to object to any public disclosure of information that could be protected by executive privilege.
The former New York City mayor added his legal team has already begun preparing a "counter-report" to refute Mueller's findings. Giuliani told The Daily Beast last week his "counter-report" is "quite voluminous," although it is not done yet.
"The first half of it is 58 pages, and second half isn't done yet . . . It needs an executive summary if it goes over a hundred," he said, adding the "counter-report" will not include any new interviews or information.
"I don't think there's anything in it that isn't publicly available in some form or another," Giuliani said. "There is no [secret] grand jury material here . . . It'll be our report, put out on . . . personal stationery, and it would be in response to their report . . . We may have to use it in court, or [send to] Congress."
