Giuliani Predicts Mueller Report Won't Have 'Evidence Of Anything Really Bad'

JESSICA RINALDI  GLOBE STAFF		Protesters gathered across from the State House on Thursday to demand a full release of the Mueller report

If Special Counsel Robert Mueller thought he was safe from the president's Twitter-based criticism now that he's turned in his report to the Department of Justice, he's in for a rude awakening. Trump has claimed the report totally exonerates him, "no collusion, no obstruction, no nothing".

"I'm going to tell you why I'm confident there will be no evidence of anything really bad", Giuliani said, before pivoting to a separate point and accusing Mueller's team of leaking to reporters "all along" during the investigation.

Additional media reports following the release of the Mueller findings detail that the team assembled to create it are dissatisfied with how Barr has described their conclusions.

Barr has faced criticism since penning his letter that he unduly sanitized the full report in Trump's favor, including on the key question of whether the president obstructed justice.

Since Mueller punted on the issue, Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein made the decision not to purse an obstruction case since Trump & Co. had been cleared on the collusion question.

The Justice Department on Friday hit back at the first lawsuit seeking the full release of special counsel Robert Mueller's report on Russian interference in the 2016 election, saying, in essence, that they're already working on it.

Barr added, however, that the Mueller findings also did not let Trump and his team off the hook, according to multiple reports.

Barr has said he plans to release a version of the Mueller report to Congress by the middle of April.

Congressional Democrats have indicated they will fight those redactions in court if the subpoena is ignored.

The Kremlin has consistently denied any involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. "We're entitled to see it because Congress represents the nation".

One of the many investigations targeting Mr Trump on Capitol Hill and in the United States court system, the House Democrat's probe into the president's tax returns could pull back the curtain on his business empire and his reputation as a savvy dealmaker.

"The requests for his private tax information are not consistent with governing law, do not advance any proper legislative goal, and threaten to interfere with the ordinary conduct of audits", Mr Consovoy said.

House Democrats have also asked the country's tax agency, the Internal Revenue Service, to turn over the last six years of Trump's federal tax returns, which, breaking custom from previous presidents the last four decades, Trump has refused to disclose. He is seeking both Mr Trump's personal and business tax returns.
