Giuliani Quits Law Firm Due to Mueller Probe

Giuliani Quits Law Firm Due to Mueller Probe

Rudy Giuliani, the former NY mayor and the latest appointee to President Donald Trump's legal team, attends the 2018 Iran Freedom Convention for Human Rights & Democracy, in Washington, D.C., on May 5.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's resignation from Greenberg Traurig to devote his time to representing President Donald Trump pushed the Miami-born law firm into the national spotlight again for a few hours.

"I wouldn't want to take his concentration off something far, far more important", Giuliani added, saying it "would be silly to make a decision" on whether Trump would sit down with the special counsel's office with so little preparation done.

Richard A. Rosenbaum, the firm's chairman, said Giuliani had planned "to play a limited role, for a short period of time, to address specific matters for President Trump".

Rudy Giuliani speaks at the Conference on Iran in Washington, D.C., on May 5, 2018.

However, in a joint statement released Thursday, the firm said the parting will be permanent, due to White House demand which is "all consuming and is lasting longer than initially anticipated".

SpaceX Block 5 Falcon 9 Launch
The first "Block 5" Falcon 9 is set to launch from pad 39A at 4:12 p.m., which is the opening of a two-hour 10-minute window. But Musk has said Falcon 9 Block 5 will be the " final version " before SpaceX moves on to bigger, badder Mars rockets.

Firm partners cringed after Giuliani's comments about the payment that Trump fixer Michael Cohen made to Daniels to keep her quiet about a one-night stand she said she had with Trump in 2006, the paper reported.

But Giuliani later blew that story out of the water when he said that Trump had reimbursed his fixer.

Rosenbaum works out of NY, now the nucleus of the firm that Miami lawyers Mel Greenberg, Bob Traurig and Larry Hoffman founded in 1967.

But Mr. Giuliani has enjoyed the public-relations work he has been doing for Mr. Trump, according to three people who have spoken with him.

"That was money that was paid by his lawyer, the way I would do, out of his law firm funds", he said on Fox News. The president has denied her allegations.

"Michael would take care of things like this, like I take care of things like this for my clients", he said.
