This revelation comes toward the end of an expansive New Yorker article about how Rudy Giuliani became Trump’s little bitch, and where his testicles are now located. (If I read it correctly I think Moscow.)
I have a rather overwhelmingly dislike for Giuliani so I am not going to share any of the interesting tidbits about his past career, his many marriages, or his complete supplication to Trump, here.
Instead, I am going to focus on the portion that I thought would interest all of us, the portion where he reveals that Trump is going to try and block Mueller’s report from seeing the light of day.
And that portion is right here:
Mueller will file a concluding report with Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, at the end of the investigation, and, in theory, Rosenstein has the option of releasing the report to Congress and to the public. But Giuliani pointed out a little-known aspect of the agreement that Trump’s original legal team struck with Mueller: the White House reserved the right to object to the public disclosure of information that might be covered by executive privilege. I asked Giuliani if he thought the White House would raise objections. “I’m sure we will,” he said, adding that the President would make the final call. In other words, the conclusion of the special counsel’s investigation could be the beginning of a contentious fight over whether Rosenstein is allowed to release a complete version of Mueller’s report.
So that means that even if Trump fails to obstruct the investigation itself he can still try to block the public’s right to see what the investigation uncovered.
But fo you know what? I am not going to worry about it.
And the reason I am not going to worry about it is that the Trump White House leaks like the Titanic in its final moments before slipping to an icy grave, and so I know there is no way that this report is not going to be leaked to the media moments after it lands on Trump’s desk.
So will Trump try to block this report?
Will he be successful?
Oh, hell no!
