Former NYC Mayor, Rudy Giuliani, has joined President Trump’s legal team and says he hopes to “negotiate an end” to the Mueller investigation regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
The former prosecutor told the Washington Post, “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have a high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller.”
Giuliani, who has been a friend of the President’s for a long time, told CNN his role on Trump’s legal team will be “limited”, telling the news outlet he will focus on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe to help bring everything to a conclusion.
Giuliani told CNN he has also known Mueller for a long time, having worked together in the justice department and said he hopes to get a list from Mueller about what is needed to “comply” with the remainder of the investigation as “it needs a little push.”
In addition to Rudy Giuliani, President Trump’s lead lawyer Jay Sekulow said former prosecutors Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin would also be joining the team.
