Giuliani joins Trump legal team to 'negotiate end' to Mueller probe

" I't performing it because I hope we can negotiate an end and due to the fact I have high regard for Bob Mueller and for the president, & rdquo; Giuliani advised the outlet.

Giuliani joins a legal team headed by Jay Sekulow. He praised the team and said sometimes a fresh perspective helps.

In recent weeks, Trump has struggled to bring on attorneys and last month lost one of the key lawyers representing him.

Still, Giuliani knows Mueller from prior work at the Justice Department as well as Mueller's tenure as Federal Bureau of Investigation director while Giuliani was New York's mayor.

Giuliani, who served as the mayor of NY between 1994 and 2001 and was in the post during the 9/11 attacks, was also the chief federal prosecutor in Manhattan for a long period in the 1980s.

Giuliani dismissed claims the president was planning on firing Mueller.

"What we've been seeing with the president is that he is picking A-level people that he knows are experienced but also know him well", said Trump ally Christopher Ruddy, the president and CEO of Newsmax Media, a conservative outlet.

But Giuliani will not change Mueller's agenda, Bharara reiterated.

President Donald Trump has been making plenty of additions to his legal team lately.

Trump added two more federal prosecutors to his legal team - Serene Raskin and Marty Raskin. Experts claimed Trump seemed like a tough client who does not pay heed to his lawyers' advice and some may fear potential conflict of interests, thus avoiding the job altogether. "I have no idea how it could have slipped my mind", he said.

"John Dowd left abruptly and put Sekulow in a hole".

"In addition to the conventional wisdom that Cohen poses great jeopardy to Donald Trump, that's built on another conventional wisdom, which is Michael Cohen is guilty of a lot of things and he is nearly certainly going to flip on Donald Trump", guest host John Heilemann analyzed.

CNN's Chris Cuomo, likewise, noted on New Day Friday the advantages for Trump of bringing the former mayor on board.

Rudy Giuliani, a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, will be joining his legal team with the goal of negotiating "an end" to the ongoing probe by special counsel Robert Mueller, according to a new report.

In a statement from Sekulow to Reuters, the lawyer quoted President Trump as saying: "Rudy is great".
