Giuliani resigns from law firm due to 'pressing demands' of Mueller probe

Giuliani resigns from law firm due to 'pressing demands' of Mueller probe

Rudy Giuliani, a member of President Trump's legal team, said the president's lawyers need more time before deciding whether the president will sit down for an interview with Special Counsel Robert Mueller for his Russian Federation probe.

The former New York City mayor joined the President's legal team last month, saying at the time he meant to work on bringing the special counsel investigation to a conclusion. But he now has chose to officially step down from the firm.

"In light of the pressing demands of the Mueller investigation, I believe it is in everyone's best interest that I make it a permanent resignation".

Giuliani backed up Rosenbaum's statement and said the resignation affords him the time concentrate on representing Trump "on this critically important matter for our country".

Greenberg Executive Chairman Richard Rosenbaum's statement read in part, "When Rudy Giuliani took an unpaid leave of absence from the firm, his intent was to play a limited role, for a short period of time, to address specific matters for President Trump".

Giuliani joined Greenberg Traurig as a partner in 2016 after leaving Bracewell, where he was a named partner for 10 years.

"As far as we know, we're basically the last witness", Giuliani said regarding a possible Trump-Mueller showdown.

Trump hired Giuliani several weeks ago, but his time on the case was not expected to be long.

Trump had previously denied knowledge of the payment.

Giuliani joined the team almost one month after the resignation of John Dowd, a former personal attorney to Trump.

In a recent appearance on Fox News, Giuliani said that Michael Cohen had made a $130,000 payment to the adult film actress in order to secure her silence before the 2016 election.

"That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds", Giuliani said.

"(The detainee release) is just going to lead into heavy negotiations with North Korea to try to get a meeting that is on our terms, or at least good terms, and it's going to be hard to interrupt him and I wouldn't do it unless it was an emergency", Giuliani said.
