“America’s Mayor,” former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, played a big role in cleaning up crime in his city and getting things rolling again after the devastating terrorist attacks of 9/11. Now he’s teaming up with President Trump for a role he feels will make a big difference for our country.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of alleged Russian interference in the last presidential election has been going on for almost a year now. Giuliani believes it’s time to move it along and wrap things up as no conclusive evidence has been found showing that Russia is responsible for Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton.
According to Fox News, Giuliani will be joining up with Trump’s legal team. He’ll be relying on his long legal history to give the president a helping hand.
“I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani told the Washington Post.
Fox News confirmed the move on Thursday. Giuliani is a former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York and a United States Associate Attorney General under former president Ronald Reagan.
Amidst rumors that Trump plans to fire Mueller, Giuliani believes the former FBI director should be allowed to keep doing what he’s doing. Despite Trump downplaying those rumors, the Pittsburgh police say they’re preparing for a possible riot if the president does make that move, CNN reported.
"My advice on Mueller has been this: He should be allowed to do his job, he’s entitled to do his job,” the former NYC mayor said.
Trump and his lawyer Jay Sekulow were cheered by the offer of extra help, with Sekulow saying, "The President said, ‘Rudy is great. He has been my friend for a long time.’ I have had the privilege of working with Mayor Giuliani for many years, and we welcome his expertise.”
Sekulow continued, "Mayor Giuliani expressed his deep appreciation to the President for allowing him to assist in this important matter.”
Giuliani replied by saying, “It is an honor to be a part of such an important legal team, and I look forward to not only working with the President but with Jay, Ty, and their colleagues.”
