President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani said in an interview Sunday that “all the information” from special counsel Robert Mueller should be made available to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, including grand jury material.
“Except for little quibbles, I’m not worried about the report at all,” Giuliani said for CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
He added that Trump’s legal team was open to providing as much information as possible, although he noted that the President “can’t waive all executive privilege,” The Hill writes.
“[Attorney General William Barr] has said he’s going to put up the maximum amount of information possible. The only thing that will stop him will be legal barriers,” Giuliani stressed.
The President’s attorney further criticized Nadler for saying that Barr was biased in favor of Trump, maintaining that Nadler “prejudged this case a year ago.” According to Giuliani, Nadler “was overheard on Amtrak talking about impeachment well before the report came out.”
He also pushed back against claims by members of Mueller’s team that the attorney general’s summary of the report misinterpreted the special counsel’s findings of the investigation, pointing out that Mueller’s investigators would have disclosed specific damaging details if there were any.
“If Andrew Weissmann, who was crying at Hillary Clinton’s losing party, couldn’t find anything, believe me, there was nothing there,” Giuliani said, stressing that the President had nothing to hide.
Responding to host Margaret Brennan, Giuliani further pointed out that not one Republican was against releasing the report to Congress.
