Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, continued to be furious with Robert Mueller's team on Friday, claiming that prosecutors would investigate the president if it was up to them.
Giuliani said they would like to keep looking for evidence that Trump was blocking justice, and that they thought they would fire him in their final report.
& # 39; They would still investigate if they could. They just believe he's bad and that something bad is wrong with him, & he said to & # 39; Fox & Friends & # 39 ;. & # 39; Consider how distorted you just read, read it again. & # 39;
Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani continued to be furious with Robert Mueller's team on Friday and claimed that prosecutors would still investigate the president if it was up to them
The president's lawyer picked up the spot where Trump had stopped when he left his beach resort in Palm Beach to hit the left in his private club.
President Trump has the & # 39; Crazy Mueller report & # 39; destroyed in a morning tweet. He insisted that parts of it & # 39; made-up & # 39; and & # 39; total nonsense * t & # 39; and he never made embarrassing statements that were attributed to him.
According to the report, Trump claimed that he & # 39; f ** ed & # 39; was when he heard about Robert Mueller's appointment. He stated that it was & # 39; the end of my presidency & # 39; said, said Jody Hunt, chief of staff of former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Hunt wrote simultaneous notes that he shared with the Special Counsel about Trump's response to Mueller staff in the moments after Sessions that the President had announced that an independent investigator had been announced.
Trump seemed to be aiming for him on Friday in a tweet dedicated to followers & # 39; to watch out & # 39; for sources that use so-called & # 39; notes & # 39; produce that was previously unknown to exist.
Giuliani said to Fox that he could have referred to any number of incidents in the report.
He noted that Trump had refuted the alleged claims of FBI director James Comey that he & # 39; loyalty & # 39; demanded and asked him to stop investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
& # 39; I'll tell you one that is a counterfeit note. A false note is that the entire story of the president told him he should take it easy with Flynn or that he hoped he could see his way freely, & Giuliani said. & # 39; President said this conversation never took place, he only produced those notes three months later, three months later after he was fired, and he changed his entire version of it. & # 39;
The president's lawyer said & # 39; you should go to jail & # 39; because of lies like that according to Trump according to Comey.
Trump may refer to former White House Counsel Don McGahn's claims that the president asked him to dismiss Mueller, but he refused. That detail appeared in news reports long before the Special Counsel submitted his final assessment.
According to the Mueller report & # 39; the president pressed him & # 39; to deny it happened.
& # 39; At the same meeting, President McGahn also asked why he had told the Special Counsel about the President's attempt to remove the Special Counsel and why McGahn made notes of his talks with the President & # 39; said the report. & # 39; McGahn refused to distance himself from what he remembered and saw the president investigate his courage. & # 39;
Giuliani told & # 39; Fox & Friends & # 39; that he could not say & # 39; what is not true and not true & # 39; about the episode, but offered that part of it & # 39; demonstratively incorrect & # 39; is.
He also said that Trump had referred to statements made by Trump's previous lawyer, Michael Cohen.
& # 39; If half of what they write about Michael Cohen is true, I would be surprised. Half of them are perjury, they write on the basis of false statements and perjury, the man needs to free up more time for the perjury he committed in the course of this investigation, & he said.
Giuliani complained that Cohen, an admitted liar who tends to imprison for perjury, is a credible source of information.
& # 39; He actually went to the convention just a few weeks ago and purged himself seven times, including the fact that he said he didn't ask for work & # 39 ;, said the president's current lawyer.
Exclusive: President Trump reads the Wall Street Journal on his way to his Palm Beach golf club on Friday morning
President Trump went after the & # 39; Crazy Mueller report & # 39; Friday morning. and insisted that parts of the hit & # 39; made-up & # 39; and & # 39; total bullsh * t & # 39; and he never made embarrassing statements that were attributed to him
Trump has rejected the allegations in the report about Cohen and Comey. Yesterday he denied trying to get Mueller fired several times.
& # 39; I had the right to end the entire witch hunt if I wanted to. I could have fired anyone, including Mueller, if I wanted to. I chose not to do that. I had the RIGHT to use Executive Privilege. Not me! & # 39;
The president repeatedly said on Thursday that he had a & # 39; good day & # 39; after the edited Mueller report had fallen.
& # 39; It was called, no collusion, no hindrance & # 39 ;, he said during an event at the White House. & # 39; By the way, there was never anything and it will never be. & # 39;
However, as the day progressed, his comment became more mean and on Friday, he denied that certain events in the Mueller report ever occurred.
Trump seemed to refute the notes of Jody Hunt in his tweets. Hunt was chief of staff at the AG at the time of Mueller & # 39; s appointment
& # 39; Statements are made about me by certain people in the Crazy Mueller report, written by the 18 Angry Democrat Trump Haters, who were made up and totally untrue. Watch out for people who use so-called & # 39; notes & # 39; when the notes never existed until they were needed & he said.
& # 39; Because I never agreed to testify, I didn't have to respond to statements in the & # 39; Report & # 39; about me, some of which are totally bullsh * t and only given to make the other person look good (or me to look) bad). & # 39;
Trump seemed to refute Hunt's note in the report – and attack Mueller as an & # 39; Angry Democrat & # 39; who was out to get him.
The president had referred to the 17 prosecutors of the Special Counsel during a months-long printing campaign. His claim was based on their ties with Hillary Clinton, through donations to her or their known party arrangements.
He counted the number to 18 on Friday morning in the tweet that suggested that he was in Mueller, most recently known as Republican, with the former FBI director of the researchers.
After Attorney General William Barr sent a letter to Congress in which Mueller's conclusion was revealed that neither the president nor his campaign conspired with Russia to get involved in the elections, Trump acknowledged that the special council was an honorable person.
Trump seemed to be on the wrong track on Friday when he refuted the part of the report that Rod Rosenstein's assistant of May 2017 told Sessions, who had turned himself off of the Russian probe, to say he had appointed a special council.
At the White House on Thursday, counselor Kellyanne Conway tried to expose Hunt's claims that Trump said he & # 39; f ** ed & # 39; and was likely to be removed from office
& # 39; This was an Illegally Started Hoax that should never have happened & # 39 ;, he wrote in an open oath tweet that used blasphemy to claim that he never used blasphemy to describe the special council agreement.
In the White House on Thursday, president-advisor Kellyanne Conway also tried to make harmful claims that were included in the report disappear.
Conway told reporters that she & # 39; never & # 39; Trump had heard such comments.
& # 39; I was very surprised to see that from someone who has been sparing here in recent years, & # 39; she said about Hunt. & # 39; I was very surprised to see that, because that was not the President's response that day when I was there. & # 39;
She noted that the report contains & # 39; words in which the president has quoted throughout the report, where he does not use those words & # 39; and that the quotes are framed as generalizations.
The senior White House official said that Trump had never talked about resigning or ending his presidential campaign, as far as she knows.
& # 39; I will tell you that he has never said on the campaign: & # 39; I think we should step down, I'm not going to run anymore, let's just – I'm done here, I can go back to my happy life, make billions of dollars. "He never said that during the campaign and he certainly never said it since he was here. & # 39;
His former campaign leader said: & I have been by his side for three consecutive years now. He never said that: & # 39; my presidency is over & # 39 ;.
& # 39; And I know that was the promise and desire of many people, many people who for a lot of reason give a lot of air time and ink, who now have zero credibility, who promised collusion, who swore that there was a would be a criminal conspiracy that would whisper in the ears of people like me that my colleagues or members of the Trump family, or both, would be led to prison, sued by the grand jury, in prison would be included, & she said. & # 39; None of that happened.
Eer Honestly, it's time to move on, total indemnity, the president is in a good mood. And I think it is incredibly important that democracy flourishes in & # 39; the world's largest country, the largest democracy. & # 39;
Conway said that Trump & # 39; s & # 39; biggest refutation & # 39; of the special council probe is that he remains in function and that he does not have to publish a dissertation that defends itself.
& # 39; He doesn't need a point-by-point reply. Do you know what his biggest reply will be? His biggest reply will be that he remains in office, he will remain in office and he will be re-elected because the Democrats have nothing, & she insisted.
Trump came out of the Mueller report without charge, but the special council did paint a non-flattering portrait of a staff member who believed that the Russian probe would lead to his demise.
When Mueller was appointed, the special council report said that Trump said: & I am numb. This is the end of my presidency. & # 39;
The account is included in the report that was released to Congress and the public at the end of Thursday morning. It gives new details the moment Trump heard of Mueller's appointment and several attempts to fire him.
Mueller wrote that Trump had sent adjutants more than once to have him fired, but they refused. The report indicated that Trump wanted to remove the special council, but he didn't want to be seen pulling the handle after what had happened to James Comey.
The firing of the former FBI director led to the appointment of the Special Counsel in the first place.
In one episode, President McGahn would have directed to give Mueller the ax. He told him about & # 39; conflicts of interest & # 39; as a reason for the removal of the Special Counsel.
& # 39; McGahn did not perform the instruction for fear of being seen as causing another Saturday Night Massacre and instead willing to resign. McGahn eventually did not stop and the president did not follow McGahn's request to have the Special Counsel removed, & the report says.
After tweets, he spent his Friday morning in Palm Beach playing golf. He was seen as the engine run that Mar-a-Lago turned off with glasses and read the Wall Street Journal through the window of his vehicle

Mueller refused to call one of the actions criminal – but he deliberately left room for Congress to come to a different conclusion.
& # 39; If we had faith after a thorough investigation of the facts that the president clearly did not commit an obstruction of justice, we would say so & he said.
Nevertheless, the White House on Thursday claimed that the president came out of the probe intact.
& # 39; I think the White House is in a great position. And what we have said in the last 2-1 / 2 years is ultimately that I think it has been fully stated, & # 39; Sarah Sanders told Fox News in an evening interview. & # 39; The president has been completely acquitted, no collusion, no impediment. & # 39;
When he landed in Palm Beach to enjoy the long Easter vacation weekend with his family on his Florida estate, the President delivered a similar message supporters and media.
& # 39; Game over, people, now it's back to work, & # 39; he said from the asphalt of the airport.
