“That would not be a position that I would want to make a statement where we would release confidential communications that took place between the president of the United States and the Department of Justice or the special counsel’s office," he said on CNN's "New Day."

"As a lawyer, you don't wave privileges and you don’t wave investigative detail absent a court order or an agreement between the parties … I think that would be very inappropriate."

Attorney General William Barr sent a letter to Congress on Sunday detailing the top-level conclusions from Mueller's probe that there was no evidence that the Trump campaign conspired or coordinated with the Russian government to interfere in the 2016 election.


Mueller's team did not reach a conclusion on whether or not Trump obstructed justice while in the presidency, however, and Barr said he and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein decided not to pursue an obstruction charge after reviewing the special counsel's findings.

Sekulow and the rest of Trump's legal team praised the results of the investigation Sunday, calling them a "complete and total vindication of the president."

Although the top-level findings of Mueller's report are now public, many have called for more information to be disclosed.

The House voted 420 to 0 last week to demand that the full report be released.

Following Barr's letter, Democratic leadership renewed their push for the document's disclosure.

Trump submitted written answers to Mueller's inquiries in November after refusing to sit down for an interview.
