Rudolph Giuliani, one of Trump's lawyers, also downplayed the significance of the investigation.

Experts immediately reflected on the landmark nature of the story, coming as it has after two years of reporting about Trump associates' interactions with Russians and their attempts to cover them up; Trump's solicitous behavior toward Putin, despite the USA intelligence community's assessment that Russian hackers, under Putin's direction, had interfered in the 2016 election; and Trump's repeated public rejections of that assessment, including his refusal to implement sanctions against Russia that were near-unanimously passed by Congress.

But it held off on opening an investigation until the president sacked Mr Comey, who refused to swear his allegiance and roll back the nascent Russian Federation investigation, which is now being spearheaded by Mr Mueller.

As the Mueller investigation enters its 20th month, Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani is hoping he can make his own adjustments to "correct" the prosecutor's final report.

Giuliani told The Hill on Thursday that the president's legal team should be allowed to review and "correct" the report before it is released to Congress. They're not God, after all. We have reserved executive privilege and we have a right to assert it.

As for Manafort, two pro-Russia Ukrainian oligarchs were the intended recipients of U.S. polling data that Manafort admitted to sharing with a Russian during the 2016 presidential race, CNN reported.

Neal Katyal, the former acting solicitor general under President Obama, wrote that any Trump attempts to hide parts of the report from the public would be defeated in court.

Cohen will testify publicly before a House committee next month in a hearing that could serve as the opening salvo in a promised Democratic effort to greater scrutinize Trump, his conflicts of interest and his ties to Russian Federation. "I have no concerns about Cohen at all because I can prove with very little effort that he is a total, complete and absolute liar", he told The Hill. The story says it is unclear whether Mueller is pursuing the counterintelligence case.

"We gave very, very complete answers to a lot of questions that I shouldn't have even been asked, and I think that should solve the problem", President Trump added.
