"The counter-report was "set to drop alongside Mueller's findings" and would include the GOP theory that the investigation was tainted from the start. Giuliani worked on the report for "nearly a year." Where is it? He didn't need to release the report himself because he was able to place the information on the front page of the NY Times. How does this work? He knows the information he has is valuable. He's not just going to give it away for nothing. The Times could have refused Giuliani's scoops. But he would just go to the Washington Post, or the AP, or whatever reporters are willing to play the game. And the next time he had a juicy story, he'd call someone else. In fact he's been promoting the work of The Epoch Times, a mysterious Chinese publication that has been banned by the Chinese government and has taken a decidedly pro-Trump editorial turn.
