“It’s like waiting for a baby,” Giuliani told the Post. “Or, maybe, it’s more like waiting for a jury. You make your case, then you have to wait days for that verdict.”
“If the report is good,” he added, “I’ll give out cigars.”
Giuliani also told the newspaper that he has not received any information on when the probe will conclude.
“We just don’t know, and they haven’t told us anything,” he said.
Giuliani said his team wrote a “counter report” to prepare for allegations that special counsel Robert MuellerRobert (Bob) MuellerAn unquestioning press promotes Rep.

Mueller is investigating whether there was foreign interference in the 2016 presidential election, including whether Russia colluded with the Trump campaign.
Giuliani, the former Republican mayor of New York City, is one of the lawyers helping Trump handle the probe. The president has repeatedly blasted the inquiry as a "witch hunt" and insists there was no collusion.
In recent weeks, there has been much speculation about when Mueller will release the findings of his investigation. Several members of Mueller's team have been leaving, a possible indication that the probe is coming to an end.
