Former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani has joined President Trump’s legal team and has expressed hopes to end the Russia probe in “a week or two”.
Giuliani made the announcement on Thursday in addition to sharing his first task of bringing an end to the special counsel’s investigation into Russia’s hacking of the 2016 presidential election within “a week or two.”
“I’m going to join the legal team to try to bring this to a resolution,” Giuliani told The Post. “The country deserves it. I’ve got great admiration for President Trump.“I’ve had a long relationship with Bob Mueller. I have great respect for him. He’s done a good job.”
Giuliani is a former US Attorney who helped the American government bring down the Italian mob in the 80s and served as New York City’s mayor when Mueller was the FBI director.
“I don’t know yet what’s outstanding. But I don’t think it’s going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution. They’re almost there. “I’m going to ask Mueller, ‘What do you need to wrap it up?’” he said.
Giuliani has been an avid supporter of Trump whom he has known for decades.
“What I did for New York City, Donald Trump will do for America,” the former mayor said at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in the summer of 2016. “I have known Donald Trump for almost 30 years. And he has created and accomplished great things. But beyond that this is a man with a big heart. Every time New York City suffered a tragedy, Donald Trump was there to help.”
Giuliani will work with lawyers Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.
