Michael Cohen Vows to Fill in Redactions in Robert Mueller's Report
Disgraced lawyer says he will be 'ready to address the American people again'
Donald Trump's disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen said on Thursday that he would fill in redactions in the redacted version of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.
“Soon I will be ready to address the American people again...tell it all...and tell it myself!” Cohen tweeted early Thursday morning.
Cohen retweeted his personal lawyer Lanny Davis, who vowed that Cohen could “fill in” the majority of the redactions.
Cohen's offer came as the Mueller report containing redactions throughout its 400-plus pages was released.
Attorney General William Barr reaffirmed on Thursday that the Mueller concluded that the "bottom line" is there was "no collusion" with Russia.
Barr also confirmed there was no evidence that any Americans had colluded with Russia.
“After nearly two years of investigation, thousands of subpoenas, and hundreds of warrants and witness interviews, the special counsel confirmed that the Russian government-sponsored efforts to illegally interfere with the 2016 presidential election but did not find that the Trump campaign or other Americans colluded in those schemes,” Barr said during the press conference.

Nice try Mr. @POTUS. #Truth We will tell it all— Lanny Davis (@LannyDavis) April 18, 2019
In February, Cohen delivered his testimony before the House Oversight and Reform Committee on Wednesday, accusing President Donald Trump of being a "racist," a "cheat," and a "conman."
Trump's former personal lawyer claimed that the president knew that Roger Stone correlated with whistleblowing agency Wikileaks ahead of dumping the Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails during the 2016 election which saw Hillary Clinton lose the election.
"I am ashamed because I know what Mr. Trump is. He is a racist. He is a conman. He is a cheat. He was a presidential candidate who knew that Roger Stone was talking with Julian Assange about a WikiLeaks drop of DNC emails," Cohen prepared remark to say.
