Rudy Giuliani claimed he and the rest of President Donald Trump’s lawyers should be allowed to “correct” the special counsel’s report before it’s made public — and he got laughed off the internet.
The former New York City mayor argued the president’s legal team should be allowed to read the report and make any corrections they wish before Robert Mueller’s findings are released to the public, reported The Hill.
“As a matter of fairness, they should show it to you — so we can correct it if they’re wrong,” Giuliani told the website. “They’re not God, after all. They could be wrong.”
Giuliani also insisted that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had done nothing wrong by allegedly sharing polling data during the 2016 campaign with Ukrainian associate Konstantin Kilimnik, and he downplayed the decision by former Trump attorney Michael Cohen to testify before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.
“Big deal!” Giuliani said sarcastically.
Social media users were amazed and baffled by Giuliani’s claims.

Just let me correct my paycheck before you deposit the funds in my account.

Reminds me of myself in middle school when I used to "correct" my report cards before I brought them home. Didn't know that would grant me a future in politics!

For someone who didn't collude with the Russians, Trump sure is convinced Mueller is going to find something bad

Is Rudy actually a lawyer? Did he go to trump law school or something?

How about he just tells everyone his version of what happened now? Why does he have to wait for Mueller.

Possible SNL skit:
Mueller: Rudy, what do you think of the report?
Giuliani: 10th paragraph should be moved up. You're burying the lede Bob.
Giuliani: How about adding "witch" somewhere in the title? And "impacts" as a verb? "Affects" much better.
Mueller: Hmmm. https://t.co/EpgxyVmTdT
