During the interview with The Hill, the former New York City mayor made light of Trump's former personal attorney Michael Cohen's intention to testify in public before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on february 7.

Trump submitted written answers to questions from Mueller in late November.

There has been no communication between either the special counsel or the president's legal team since before Christmas, Mr. Giuliani told Reuters.

"As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you - so we can correct it if they're wrong", Giuliani said. They're not God, after all.

Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani stated in a new interview that his team will push to get a look at it before it is released or ends up in the public domain.

"Of course we have to see [the report] before it goes to Congress". It is possible this would set off a battle over any executive privilege claims. "The only way we can assert it is if we see what is in the report". That's when the FBI made a decision to investigate "whether the president's own actions constituted a possible threat to national security", according to the Times. "Unlike President Obama who let Russian Federation and other foreign adversaries push America around, President Trump has actually been tough on Russian Federation".

The grand jury empaneled by the special counsel has been extended for another six months, however, signaling that the probe may continue beyond the winter.

The special counsel's team is investigating whether Russian Federation and the Trump campaign colluded during the 2016 presidential election and any obstruction of justice claims.

CNN also reported that investigators are examining whether conflicting public statements by Trump and his team would be considered an attempt to obstruct justice. But, according to the Times, the bureau decided not to open a file on Trump himself, because it was unsure of how to investigate a major party candidate for the president of the United States.
