Giuliani Joins President Trump's Legal Team

Giuliani Joins President Trump's Legal Team

In case you were anxious Donald Trump's legal team wasn't desperate enough, the president has somehow convinced Rudy Giuliani to hop aboard and try to save him from Robert Mueller's investigation!

Trump's decision to hire Giuliani to assist him in the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election came as he grew increasingly frustrated with speculation that he was having trouble finding a legal heavyweight to join his team.

Several news reports on Thursday afternoon cited interviews, including with Giuliani himself, confirming his plans to join Trump's legal team as part of the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller related to Russian interference in the 2016 USA election.

After drawing wide praise for his leadership in NY after the September 11, 2001, terror attacks, Giuliani ran for president seven years later, only to see his bid quickly falter. "They have a nationwide practice and reputation for excellence and integrity", Trump's personal attorney, Jay Sekulow, said in a statement Thursday.

We may not know what exactly inspired Giuliani to hop aboard Trump's sinking legal ship, but we're sure it wasn't just the honor of serving the president. "He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country". "Every time New York City suffered a tragedy, Donald Trump was there to help". Trump has been mulling for weeks whether to do so, veering between wanting to meet with Mueller to moving away from the idea, especially after the home, offices and hotel room of his personal attorney, Michael Cohen, were raided this month.

"I've had a long relationship with Bob Mueller". That probe is being led by the USA attorney in Manhattan.

Meanwhile, Giuliana has been an outspoken supporter of Donald Trump since the early days of his campaign. Giuliani had been widely expected to join Trump's administration but was passed over for the position of secretary of state, the position he badly wanted, and eventually left without a Cabinet post.
