He added, "let me say for the 400th time, the president did not do anything wrong.”

Giuliani called Attorney General William Barr’s summary of Mueller’s findings a “complete exoneration” of the president.

In a letter to Congress, Barr wrote that Mueller's investigation found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia but made no conclusion on whether Trump obstructed justice over the course of the probe.

"That is a complete exoneration by the attorney general and Rod Rosenstein," Giuliani said.

“It’s quite clear, no collusion of any kind … which kind of raises the question, why did this ever start in the first place?” Giuliani told CNN on Sunday.

Mueller turned in his report to the DOJ on Friday. Giuliani described Trump as “in a remarkably good mood” ahead of the summary’s release on Sunday.

“He’s never terribly bothered by these things,” Giuliani told Politico. “The only time the president has ever been bothered is when they go after other people.”
