"I'm going to tell you why I'm confident there will be no evidence of anything really bad", Giuliani said, before pivoting to a separate point and accusing Mueller's team of leaking to reporters "all along" during the investigation.

In another tweet, Trump called the report "a total waste of time".

Democratic Lawmaker: ‘Some Things May Need To Be Redacted’ From Mueller Report

In recent days, unnamed members of Mueller's team have expressed irritation in the press, complaining that the report's findings were more damning than Barr indicated. He also asked Barr to hand over communications between the special counsel's team and the department about the report. But Barr said he concluded there was not enough evidence to show that Trump committed the crime of obstruction.

"There's no way those two good lawyers would have written that kind of letter if there's any issue", Giuliani said on "Face the Nation" Sunday, referring to Attorney General William Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who authored the four-page summary of Mueller's conclusions.

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, wife MacKenzie finalise divorce
People getting divorced is now commonplace, and when one gets announced, it does not draw as much attention as it once did. Bezos subsequently accused the tabloid of attempting to blackmail him by threatening to publish more intimate photos.

Despite the Democrats' determination to hold Trump's bone spurs to the fire, the president is clearly feeling he has the upper hand, given the favorable summary produced by his handpicked attorney general.

Giuliani's comments come just days after The New York Times reported on the upset among some Mueller staffers over Barr's handling of the report - particularly the attorney general's four-page summary that noted there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, and Barr's decision not to proceed with obstruction of justice charges against Trump.

House of Representatives Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler, already pressing Barr to release the entire unredacted report to Congress, expanded his demands.

Kristofer Hivju, who played the role of Tormund Giantsbane, pointed to the show's unpredictability as part of its strength. It also has one of the most dynamic battle scenes ever filmed in an episode called, "Battle of the Bastards".

He told Congress in a letter last week he must redact material that was presented to a grand jury, as required by law, as well as information that could reveal USA intelligence agencies' sources and methods. We have an obligation to read the full report, and the Department of Justice has an obligation to provide it, in its entirely, without delay. He is reviewing the report to determine whether grand jury and classified information has to be withheld. "This Russia Hoax must never happen to another President, and Law Enforcement must find out, HOW DID IT START?" The Department of Justice will continue to defend the long-established tradition of protecting grand jury information, " Laco said.
