WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says his legal team has already drafted a rebuttal to any report issued by the special counsel in the Russia investigation.
Trump took to Twitter on Friday to say his legal team is preparing to counter special counsel Robert Mueller’s findings on whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian election interference.
It has been incorrectly reported that Rudy Giuliani and others will not be doing a counter to the Mueller Report. That is Fake News. Already 87 pages done, but obviously cannot complete until we see the final Witch Hunt Report.

The Republican president says his team’s report is 87 pages so far. But he says it won’t be complete until Mueller issues his report.
Trump’s comments come as Mueller is facing court deadlines to detail the cooperation of Trump’s longtime legal fixer Michael Cohen. The special counsel also will detail the lies prosecutors say former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort told that led to his plea deal falling apart.
Manafort has said he believes he provided “truthful information.”
