Davis added that Cohen "has 7 days, 70 hours, + 100 pages of what" Mueller's team knows.

"As the #Country waits for the #MuellerReport, know this … it does not matter how #Barr #RedactedMuellerReport," tweeted Davis, who is also an opinion contributor to The Hill.

Cohen pleaded guilty during Mueller's investigation and cooperated with the special counsel's office while it conducted a probe into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible obstruction of justice by Trump.

Barr said in a four-page summary last month that Mueller did not uncover evidence to conclude that the Trump campaign coordinated with Russia. The summary also said that Mueller did not implicate or exonerate Trump on obstruction of justice. 
 
The Post, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that Mueller's report will show that he could not reach a conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice due to the difficulty determining Trump's intent.
