WASHINGTON (AP/WBEN) - President Donald Trump's lawyers are putting the finishing touches on a rebuttal to the forthcoming report by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Rudy Giuliani, one of the president's attorneys, said Tuesday that their document will be dozens of pages long. Giuliani says it will be published in the hours after the release of Mueller's report on Russian interference into the 2016 presidential election. The Justice Department says it expects to unveil a redacted version of the 400-page document Thursday.

The President isn't the only one ready to respond.

"I think the Democrats, they've already given their reaction and they haven't even seen the report," Congressman Chris Collins told WBEN. "It will take Nancy Pelosi a half a second, and it will take Alexandria Orcasio [sic] Cortez even less time than that. They don't care what's in the report."

Attorney General Robert Barr last month released a four-page summary of the report and said Mueller did not conclude that Trump's campaign colluded with Russians.

He did not rule on whether Trump obstructed justice. Barr and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein ruled that he did not.
