Rudy Giuliani wants to see the Mueller report before it is released so that he will know how to write his rebuttal.

I say fuck that, let the Trump team read it in the New York Times like the rest of us.

As the special counsel Robert Mueller prepares to complete a report about his inquiry into whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice during the Russia investigation, Trump’s lawyers have begun laying the groundwork to argue that the report should not be released to Congress or the public in the first place.

The crux of the argument is the claim that much of the information in Mueller’s report would be subject to executive privilege and would need to be approved by the White House before being released to the public.

Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s lead defense attorney, told Business Insider that the White House would waive executive privilege if, among other things, it were allowed to review a draft of Mueller’s report before it is released.

Trump’s legal team wants to review Mueller’s findings beforehand, Giuliani said, because it wants to release a rebuttal at the same time as Mueller’s report is released.

Giuliani cites a couple of examples to bolster his argument, but they those are really concerning internal reports about employees who have certain rights to see reports before they are sent up the chain of command.

That does not pertain to the report by the Special Counsel as we are now in uncharted waters.

Moreover, as written in the article, prosecutors do not typically share their findings beforehand with the subjects of their investigations.

So that really leaves this decision entirely in the hands of Rod Rosenstein, the same Rod Rosenstein that Donald Trump has been attacking for months. 

Gee, I wonder what he will decide?

    Sarah Huckabee Sanders sends Trump’s fans to attack New York Times, breaks federal regulations

    ………..As the White House apparently scrambles, on Trump’s insistence, to find the identity of the leaker, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mounted a Twitter effort encouraging Trump allies to jam the New York Times phone lines. As former Obama White House ethics czar Norm Eisen points out, this is a violation of federal regulations.

    .. A government official inciting the public to flood the phones of a private corporation & media outlet with harassing calls–openly interfering with its work–is a violation of the prohibition on “Misuse of Position” in 5 CFR 2635.702. Oh, the 1st Amendment is kinda relevant too……..

    In 2011 Kavanaugh Ruled Foreign Actors May Fund American Political Advocacy Groups (Russia/NRA)

    Why Kavanaugh? Turns out in 2011 Kavanaugh was one of three judges who ruled that foreigners may fund American political advocacy groups. And now a Russian company accused by Mueller of influencing an American election is using Kavanaugh’s opinion to get the case against them thrown out. Boiled down, Kavanaugh believes foreign actors may legally spend unlimited money in our political elections as long as they launder/funnel it through a political advocacy group. Like Russian officials giving the NRA & Paul Ryan’s Super PAC millions to get Trump elected…….

    “When Trump didn’t separate his business from his presidential campaign, Trump gave federal prosecutors an easy, but indirect way, to indict him. Much of the focus from the feds is on the fact that Trump funneled money from his company to pay back Michael Cohen for the hush money payouts to keep Trump’s affairs quiet, but the business and the campaign were so mixed together that it would be worthwhile for investigators to examine the potential for a wide series of campaign finance violations.”
