While the cringing Wormtongue could also be used to describe many in the current administration, Gollum seems like the best fit for Trump's current counsel.
Giuliani told USAToday that he expects a final report to be issued by Mueller and his team prior to September 1, and added, that in his opinion, Mueller is "writing the report as we speak".
