Hallucinations: "Trump team should be allowed to ‘correct’ final Mueller report, says Giuliani"

Trump team should be allowed to ‘correct’ final Mueller report, says Giuliani
[thehill.com]


Rudy Giuliani says President Trump’s legal team should be allowed to “correct” special counsel Robert Mueller’s final report before Congress or the American people get the chance to read it.

The claim, made in a telephone interview with The Hill on Thursday evening, goes further than the president’s legal advisers have ever gone before in arguing they have a right to review the conclusions of Mueller’s probe, which is now in its 20th month.

“As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you — so we can correct it if they’re wrong,” said the former New York City mayor, who is a member of Trump's personal legal team. “They’re not God, after all. They could be wrong.”

The special counsel's office declined to comment.

In the wide-ranging interview, Giuliani also made light of the decision by Michael Cohen — Trump’s former attorney, who was recently sentenced to three years in prison — to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Feb. 7.

“Big deal!” Giuliani exclaimed sarcastically.

He also downplayed this week’s revelation that the president’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, allegedly shared opinion poll data during the 2016 campaign with Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian citizen who had previously worked with Manafort in Ukraine and is suspected of having ties to Russia’s military intelligence unit, the GRU.

“Should he have done it? No. But there’s nothing criminal about it,” Giuliani said.

It is the assertion that Trump’s legal representatives should be allowed to vet Mueller’s report that carries the most profound implications, however.

Up to now, speculation has focused on the idea that the White House Counsel’s office might push back on certain disclosures within Mueller’s final report if it believes the details violate executive privilege.

Giuliani repeated that claim in a 20-minute phone interview with The Hill but went further with the suggestion of correcting purported factual errors.

Any such attempt would spark an instant political firestorm.

Giuliani is still on Trump's personal legal team?

You'd think WH adults would know better than to allow this.

"They could be wrong.”

It's good to know Trump's legal team, by comparison, could therefore not be wrong. So helpful.

A "WH Adult" is as rare as a "Fiscal Conservative."

i.e. imaginary.

Silly. Two wrongs make a right!
