    Rudi is at the ready.

    "As President Donald Trump publicly boasts that special counsel Robert Mueller’s anticipated 400-page report “totally exonerated” him, White House officials are completing a counter-report that rebuts its findings.


    The Department of Justice is preparing to release a redacted version of the special counsel’s report on Thursday morning. The report is the result of a two-year investigation into whether the president’s campaign played a role in Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 election. Last month, Attorney General William Barr released a four-page memo relaying Mueller’s team did not find the Trump campaign colluded with Russia, but did not exonerate him of obstructing justice.


    The White House has been briefed “in broad-brush strokes” on the report and it will not invoke executive privilege to get further redactions, ABC News reported Sunday.


    Despite all this, Trump’s legal team has been working on a counter-report for months, which will attack the legitimacy of the investigation and focus on obstruction of justice claims the special counsel lays out in his report, according to Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani. The counter-report is reportedly 140 pages long, and Giuliani said the team is trying to cut it down to around 50 pages.
