Former New York Mayor Giuliani joins Trump's legal team

Rudy Giuliani Joins President Trump's Legal Team “for the good of the Country”

The new hires round out a more legal robust team for Trump.

Giuliani had a long legal career before he was elected mayor of New York City in 1997.

Of interest, at one time Giuliani ran the Southern District of NY U.S. Attorney's office, which is the office that recently raided the office of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen. But what exactly is Giuliani's role going to be? Jane was once the First Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of MA, and handled organized crime cases for the Department of Justice. The legal team has often been beset by infighting. "By nature, it's going to expand the scope of who you're going to retain". "Will he be combative Rudy, or will he play well with Mueller's team?" His legal team has been told by Mueller that the president is not a target of the investigation, suggesting he's not in imminent criminal jeopardy. "And will Trump listen to him?" Trump reacted angrily, calling it "disgraceful".

He said her campaign seems to be focused very much downstate in the city, Long Island and the lower Hudson Valley. Barone said he was contacted by the governor's office shortly before the executive order was signed.

Sekulow added: "I have had the privilege of working with Mayor Giuliani for many years, and we welcome his expertise". Giuliani's arrival signals that something darker - perhaps something worse than the Mueller probe - could be lurking around the corner.

White House Counsel Don McGahn has been mostly focused on issues that don't involve the Russian Federation investigation. "My advice onto Mueller has been that: He ought to be allowed to do his own job, he'therefore entitled to do his own position".

"We're back on track and this should help bring this down the home stretch", said one source close to Trump.

National Weather Service meteorologist Doug Speheger says such conditions haven't been seen in at least a decade. Officials estimated the fire could be fully contained late Friday, a "target date", Nichols said.

The mainstream legal world appeared to continue to want to keep Trump at arm's length on Thursday. He added that he and Cobb also spoke, on Wednesday.

Sekulow offered in his statement: "The president said, 'Rudy is great". He has been frequently seen holding court at the Trump International Hotel in Washington, dining and drinking with friends and browsing for gourmet cigars. Shortly before the FBI director at the time, James Comey, reopened that investigation that October, Giuliani said the Trump campaign had "a couple of things up our sleeves that should turn things around".

Some of their cases high-profile white collar cases include representing federal immigration agents suspected of extorting money from drug kingpins, mob suspects, and a contractor tied to the 1996 Valujet plane crash in the Everglades. More recently, he has said he was consulted by Trump on how to implement the travel ban put in place a year ago against Muslim-majority nations.
