Trump Legal Team Should Be Allowed to Correct Mueller's Final Report - Giuliani

An anonymous source told CNN that Trump's comments raised enough concern that they started investigating him.

In this image released by ABC News, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey appears at an interview with George Stephanopoulos set to air during a prime time "20/20" special on April 15, 2018 on the ABC Television Network.

The counterintelligence investigation was ultimately opened after Trump publicly discussed Comey's firing, suggesting it was because of the Russian Federation probe.

It previously reported Mueller and the FBI are investigating Trump for possible obstruction of justice over Comey's firing, but the counterintelligence investigation into Trump had not been disclosed until the Times scoop.

The reporter also clarified, as per the Times' report, that the investigation was later taken on by Mueller when he was appointed in the days following Comey's firing.

During the campaign, FBI officials were troubled by Trump's ties to Russia, and opened an investigation into the campaign in August 2016, two months after the Trump Tower meeting between campaign senior officials and Russian surrogates. Not only do we know that Mueller knows Manafort was talking with - and sharing polling data with - Konstantin Kilimnik - while he was the head of Trump's campaign, we also now know that Mueller has talked to the pollster from whom Manafort may well have taken those numbers that he shared with Kilimnik.

A petition filed in Delhi High Court seeking a ban on the movie's trailer is due for a hearing on Wednesday. He has also complained against the film's director and producer.

The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, called the Times' report "absurd" and said Comey was sacked for being "a disgraced partisan hack". And there is no evidence yet public that Manafort ever told Trump that he was talking with Kilimnik, much less sharing poll numbers and discussing Ukraine and Russian Federation.

President Trump said he was unaware of Mr. Whitaker's past statements about Mr. Mueller's probe and that he would "not get involved" if Mr. Whitaker moved to curtail it.

"I think we have wasted enough time on this witch hunt and the answer is probably, we're finished", President Trump said, though he added "I can change my mind".

Giuliani said it is unclear to the legal team whether acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is now in charge of the investigation.

It's not clear whether the report will ever be released publicly.
