RUDY RETURNS: Giuliani VOWS to End Mueller Probe Within 'Weeks'

"I for one will sleep much easier knowing that Mayor Giuliani and these other people have joined the team to give the president's team extra power", said Jason Miller, a senior adviser to Trump's 2016 campaign who also served as deputy communications director when Giuliani ran for president in 2008.

Giuliani will be joining Sekulow on Trump's personal legal team but will be working closely with White House lawyer Ty Cobb, who has also been handling the administration's cooperation with the Mueller investigation.

"The president said, 'Rudy is great".

In a statement announcing Giuliani's hire, Trump expressed his wish that the investigation wrap up soon and praised Giuliani, a fellow New Yorker, confidant and Mar-a-Lago regular.

As for why Giuliani took on this role, sources close to the president told the New York Times that Trump might be replacing attorney general Jeff Sessions with Giuliani in the coming months.

The former NY mayor told The Washington Post on Thursday that he hopes to "negotiate an end" to the investigation into Russian interference in the election "for the good of the country". "He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country".

Giuliani is a former US attorney for the Southern District of NY, which is the office now overseeing an investigation of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

Giuliani declined to say whether Trump has made a final decision on whether to sit for an interview with Mueller and his investigators.

"Trump personal attorney Jay Sekulow told The Associated Press that Giuliani will be focusing on the Mueller investigation â€" not the legal matters raised by the ongoing investigation into Trump attorney Michael Cohen.

"I've had a long relationship with Bob Mueller".

The Daily Beast reported earlier Thursday that Giuliani was in talks with Trump about joining the legal team. That probe is being led by the US attorney in Manhattan. He was considered for a job in Trump's Cabinet but was ultimately passed over.
