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?
