Rudy Giuliani says the White House would likely attempt to block a full public release of Robert Mueller's anticipated final report about the Russian Federation investigation ― bolstering long-held fears that the special counsel's ultimate findings may never see the light of day.

The Times cited "two people briefed on" a letter 's office sent to 's lawyers.

Mueller is wary that the Trump's legal team may use executive privilege to shield the president from answering questions about obstruction of justice - another avenue of the inquiry.

Mueller's office had previously indicated that it had many questions for the president on the obstruction issue.

Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, the president's personal attorneys, declined comment, as did a representative for the special counsel's office, according to The Washington Post.

The president could submit written answers to questions about whether his campaign was involved with Russian interference in the 2016 election. After weeks of back-and-forth, Mueller warned Trump's legal team in a tense March meeting that he could subpoena Trump if he refused to grant an interview voluntarily.

Mueller's decision to accept at least some written responses represents a concession to Trump's legal team, which since December has resisted the special counsel's efforts to interview the president.

But they have dangled written answers as a possibility, and Mueller's team appears receptive to it as an interim measure. You know, he's Comey's best friend.
