This looks like a report designed to malign Mueller and steal the spotlight for when Mueller drops his own report on the public. It is beyond obvious at this point to anyone who hasn’t been in a coma for the past year that the Mueller investigation has devolved into a “help Democrats get elected” investigation, so why shouldn’t Trump create a report of his own?
President Trump’s legal team is preparing a “voluminous” report aimed at discrediting special counsel Robert Mueller and aims to have a “preliminary draft” of the report ready by next week, Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani told the Daily Beast.
He also indicated that most of the information in the counterreport is publicly available information that can be found on Google.
“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,” Giuliani told the Beast.
The “counterreport” is intended to help Trump’s team defend the president against special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice charges.
Giuliani also told the Daily Beast that Trump knows the report is part of the team’s legal strategy “and he’s happy with it.”
“We may have to use it in court, or [send it to] Congress,” he said.
Giuliani has previously discussed the counterreport, telling USA Today last month that Trump’s legal team is “writing the report as we speak.”
