Former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, a one-time federal prosecutor, is joining U.S. President Donald Trump's personal legal team, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow said in a statement on Thursday.

"Rudy is great. He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country," Sekulow quoted Trump as saying.
Giuliani was one of three attorneys Sekulow said were being added to the legal team that is dealing with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Russia has denied any meddling. Trump has said there was no collusion between his team and Moscow, and has called the Mueller probe a "witch hunt."
The Republican mayor of New York from 1994 to 2001, Giuliani was also the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan for much of the 1980s. During that time, he brought many high-profile cases targeting insider trading on Wall Street.

Giuliani was also a top Department of Justice official in the Reagan administration.
Since exiting the mayor's office, Giuliani has been in private practice, most recently at the law firm of Greenberg Traurig. The firm said Giuliani is on a leave of absence, effective today.
Sekulow said the other two attorneys joining Trump's team are the Florida husband-and-wife white-collar defence lawyers Martin and Jane Raskin.

He will get fired in about a Scaramucci and then his sister Trudy Giuliani will join the team. Ratings~!

Shouldn't this say "Trump panics, accidentally hires alleged co-conspirator as his lawyer"?

Trump only hires the best, and there is no sharper legal brain than the one that Rudy Giuliani keeps on his end table.

Last I knew he was rumored to be suffering from Alzheimer's or dementia, so it would seem par for the course.

He claimed there was never a terrorist attack on American soil until Obama became president. Dude, ummmm 9/11? You never shut up about it for 15 years and now you don't remember it?

I really admired Rudy once upon a time. He was always a dick but knew how to get things done. Now, he is a rambling mess.

In one of his first interviews, Senile Rudy said that Trump paid back Michael Cohen the $130,000 hush money to Stormy Daniels, completely blowing up Trump's claim that he didn't even know money exchanged hands.  And thus ended Rudy's tenure on Team Trump...again.

Well add to the fact that Guiliani went on Fox a few days ago and said he didn't pay him

Because it's working with his base.   He has gotten away with shit like this for so long, that he honestly believes he's untouchable.

The honeymoon lasted about a week.  Sources say that Trump is discussing "benching" Rudy from all media appearances already.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/headlines-swirl-trump-grows-frustrated-234514624.html

NEW YORK (AP) — President Donald Trump is growing increasingly irritated with lawyer Rudy Giuliani's frequently off-message media blitz, in which he has muddied the waters on hush money paid to porn actress Stormy Daniels and made claims that could complicate the president's standing in the special counsel's Russia probe.

Trump has begun questioning whether Giuliani, the former New York City mayor, should be sidelined from television interviews, according to two people familiar with the president's thinking but not authorized to speak publicly about private discussions.

Trump also expressed annoyance that Giuliani's theatrics have breathed new life into the Daniels story and extended its lifespan. It's a concern shared by Trump allies who think Giuliani is only generating more legal and political trouble for the White House.

Giuliani, the newest addition to the president's legal team, first rattled the White House last week when he sat for interviews on Fox News and seemed to contradict Trump's previous statements by saying the president was aware of the October 2016 payout to Daniels from his personal attorney, Michael Cohen. He also suggested the settlement with Daniels had been made because Trump was in the stretch run of his presidential campaign.

After Trump chided Giuliani on Friday, saying the lawyer needed to "get his facts straight," the former mayor put out a statement trying to clarify his remarks. But in weekend interviews, Giuliani appeared to dig himself a deeper hole by acknowledging that "Cohen takes care of situations like this, then gets paid for them sometimes." He did not rule out the possibility that Cohen had paid off other women.

Trump, who has denied the affair with Daniels, was angry that Giuliani had given the impression that other women may make similar charges of infidelity, according to the people familiar with his views.

Additionally, Trump has grown agitated in recent days by cable news replays of Giuliani's Wednesday interview with Sean Hannity, in which he first said that Trump knew about the payment but claimed it wouldn't be a campaign violation. A clearly surprised Hannity then asked, "Because they funneled it through the law firm?"

To which Giuliani responded, "Funneled it through the law firm, and the president repaid him."

Trump snapped at both men in recent days, chiding Hannity for using the word "funneled," which he believes had illegal connotations, according to the people. As for Giuliani, the president has not yet signaled to him to stop appearing on television, but told a confidant recently that perhaps his new lawyer should "be benched" at least temporarily, if he can't improve his performance.

The president has not publicly discussed dismissing Giuliani and has been appreciative of his sharp attacks on the Russia investigation and his forceful battles with the press, according to three White House aides and outside allies. The two men have spoken frequently, according to officials familiar with their interactions.

But many Trump allies both inside and outside the White House have grown anxious in recent days about Giuliani's whirlwind and unpredictable interviews.
"They're admitting to enough that warrants scrutiny. It shouldn't be put on television shows off the cuff," said Alan Dershowitz, the emeritus Harvard law professor who has been informally advising Trump on the Russia collusion probe.
"This is not the way to handle a complicated case."

Trump, according to one confidant, celebrated Giuliani's hiring last month by declaring that he had enlisted "America's F---ing Mayor" as a legal attack dog with star power. But many in the White House have begun evoking comparisons with Anthony Scaramucci — who, like Giuliani, was a hard-charging New Yorker with a knack for getting TV airtime.

Scaramucci only lasted 11 days before being fired. The former White House communications director himself drew parallels between his own burn-bright-burn-fast tenure and Giuliani's performance — but said he meant it as a "big compliment."

"I am enjoying all of the comparisons between me and the mayor #RudyGiuliani," Scaramucci tweeted Sunday. "He is loyal, tough and a fierce competitor. He fights and will win for @realDonaldTrump @POTUS. Big compliment thank you!"

Giuliani did not respond to requests for comment.

West Wing aides were blindsided by Giuliani's TV appearances last week and many senior advisers and members of the president's legal team have been cut out of the decision-making process. But some aides have been reluctant to broach the subject with Trump because it only increases their liability, according to officials.

Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who was among those surprised by Giuliani's string of TV appearances, said Monday that Trump felt the former mayor "added value" to his outside legal team. On Friday, Trump said Giuliani was "a great guy but he just started a day ago" on the defense team. He made clear the former New York mayor was still "learning the subject matter."

Some West Wing aides have complained that Giuliani, who ran for president in 2008, was acting like a "principal" and not a member of a team. And some in Trump's inner circle raised their eyebrows at Giuliani's declaration that Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and senior adviser, was "disposable." He also declined to rule out Trump invoking the Fifth Amendment in special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing Russia probe.

Trump has repeatedly railed against those who take the Fifth, declaring at one September 2016 campaign rally: "The mob takes the Fifth. If you're innocent, why are you taking the Fifth Amendment?"

The episode revived worries in Trump's inner circle about Giuliani, who enjoys the media limelight and has a tendency to go off-script. His behavior grew more unpredictable during the stretch run of the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump chided him for falling asleep on the campaign plane, according to two former campaign officials.

Giuliani also alienated a number of people in Trump's inner circle by insisting that the only Cabinet position he would consider would be secretary of state. He did not get the post.

Giuliani's remarks have also been watched with concern at the State Department and Pentagon after he weighed in recently on international affairs, raising questions about whether he was speaking for the president. He declared last week that North Korea would be releasing three Americans being held captive, which has not yet happened, and said the administration was committed to regime change in Iran, a stance Trump has not taken.

"He speaks for himself and not on behalf of the administration on foreign policy," State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Monday.

It got way way worse for Trump last night. Michael Avenatti (Daniels' Lawyer), announced that Cohen got $500K from Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg into the same account (an LLC) that was used to pay both Daniels and the playmate that was paid off over the abortion for Eric Broidy. Add AT&T and a pharmaceutical company.

Shell corps to launder money and garner pay to play for access to Trump.

All very serious campaign fraud and bank fraud allegations. And the kicker is we're just hearing about his now, but all of those companies have verified that Mueller interviewed them six months ago. So he's way ahead on all of this.

Remember that Cohen really had no other clients outside of Trump.

This dipshit has been fired from his cushy job at his law firm Greenberg Traurig now.  Rudy publicly stated that he's taking a leave of absence because of the time demands of the Trump case, but the law firm then said, "Uh, no, he doesn't work here anymore."

The quote that got him fired and even pissed off Trump was this: "That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds.  Michael would take care of things like this like I take care of this with my clients.”

The Greenberg Traurig partners were obviously incensed that Rudy would say something like that, bringing his own unethical work while working for them into the Trump mess. 

They released this statement: “We cannot speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks. Speaking for ourselves, we would not condone payments of the nature alleged to have been made or otherwise without the knowledge and direction of a client.”

And that was the end of Rudy's job.  Trump will fire him within days and then he'll be sleeping on a gay dude's couch again.
