Rudy Giuliani used a broad-range interview on Thursday to say the White House should get to review and “correct” Robert Mueller‘s investigative findings before the special counsel presents them to the public.
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.”
Giuliani acknowledges that it wouldn’t look good for Trump if they administration tries to have parts of Mueller’s report redacted from the public, but he also made a point of saying executive privilege must be upheld.
Just In: Rudy Giuliani tells me that Trump's team should be allowed to "correct" Mueller's final report before it goes to Congress or to the public. https://t.co/Tqtq39Xwvf

Possible SNL skit:
Mueller: Rudy, what do you think of the report?
Giuliani: 10th paragraph should be moved up. You're burying the lede Bob.
Giuliani: How about adding "witch" somewhere in the title? And "impacts" as a verb? "Affects" much better.
Mueller: Hmmm. https://t.co/EpgxyVmTdT

Giuliani also made light of the decision by Michael Cohen … to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7.
“Big deal!” Giuliani exclaimed sarcastically.https://t.co/G7x7Ny8RT6
