    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has been in talks to join the President Donald Trump’s personal legal team, according to a person familiar with the matter. No decision is currently final. A slew of foreign policy matters which Trump has had to deal with has slowed the process of expanding the president's legal team, according the person familiar with the matter. Trump’s time has been absorbed by North Korea and Syria, which has limited his availability to speak with potential new members of his legal team. Giuliani did not immediately return a request for comment. But he is...

    Former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani, a combative former prosecutor and longtime ally of President Trump, told The Washington Post on Thursday that he has joined the president’s legal team dealing with the ongoing special counsel probe. “I’m doing it because I hope we can negotiate an end to this for the good of the country and because I have high regard for the president and for Bob Mueller,” Giuliani said in an interview. Giuliani, who joins a legal team that has struggled to recruit new members to its ranks, said he has been speaking with Trump for weeks...

    Rudy Giuliani and his wife, Judith, are divorcing after 15 years of marriage, the former New York mayor confirmed first to Page Six. Giuliani, who married Judith in 2003, said, “It is with great sadness I can confirm that Judith and I are divorcing. We hope to do this as amicably as possible, and hope that people will respect the privacy of our children at this time.” Judith on Wednesday filed a contested divorce proceeding in Manhattan Supreme Court, which indicates she’s readying for a fight over their marital assets, which include property in Manhattan and Palm Beach, Fla. Rudy,...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) and his wife of more than a decade are calling it quits. “It is with great sadness I can confirm that Judith and I are divorcing,” the former presidential candidate said in a statement to The New York Post. The paper was first to report that Judith Giuliani had filed a contested divorce on Wednesday in Manhattan Supreme Court. “In these divorce situations, you cannot place blame. It is 50/50. There are problems on both sides,” he said. “We will have to divide our properties in New York and Palm Beach.” The...

    Bill De Blasio is New York’s DEM mayor, and the same guy who chose to put the kibosh on Giuliani’s/NYPD’s program of mosque surveillance, with the end result being a number of Islamic terrorist attacks in the Big Apple in the last year. By the way, the last two jihadists who wreaked havoc in NY attended mosques that were previously under surveillance, prior to De Blasio’s decision to kill the program. Now De Blasio will spend 50 million dollars of taxpayers money on steel barriers and “security infrastructure”. Let me quote from a BBC report: “The mayor of New York...
  • U.S. Attorney General appoints 17 interim top prosecutors

    01/04/2018 5:55:14 AM PST · by ransomnote · 14 replies ^ | JANUARY 3, 2018 | Karen Freifeld, Nathan Layne
    (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday appointed 17 current and former federal prosecutors as interim U.S. Attorneys in jurisdictions around the country, the Department of Justice said. The interim posts are for 120 days unless those holding them are re-appointed by a court or officially nominated by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the U.S. Senate, a Justice Department official said. It is unclear if those named on Wednesday will also be nominated. Some may face political opposition, as U.S. senators traditionally have some say in the nominations of U.S. Attorneys who would serve within their states....

    Rudy Giuliani was rushed to emergency surgery on Sunday after his right leg gave way on the first day of his vacation on Long Island. Talking about his quadriceps tendon surgery, the former mayor exclusively told Page Six from his hospital bed, “I was a catcher from a very young age, and I have suffered with ‘catcher’s knee’ for years, and the doctors said it would deteriorate.” “Then my knee gave way when I was walking on Sunday . . . I tried to get up but [my wife] Judith ordered me not to move. If it hadn’t been for...

    Am up in DC from Florida for my old firm's (I'm a retired Senior Partner) "Tennis and Tom Collins" Summer party. About 400 people here. Please understand, as soon as something becomes official or public news in Washington, it is no longer very interesting here. DC is all about rumors and the next day's news. For example, as soon as the stories about Monica became public on that Monday night, ("everyone" here knew the previous Friday) the really interesting stories all revolved around "would he admit it on TV and ask for forgiveness or would Hillary insist on legal ropa-dopa....

    Synopsis of video: Trump must fire Sessions and replace him with Giuliani Here's why: 1. Sessions emasculated himself by stating, during his confirmation hearing, that he was recusing himself from the Russian investigation, and from investigating Clinton because he was "too partisan" in that matter. 2. Because of this, Sessions has no power. He can't protect Trump and perform the duties of his office. 3. Rudy will fight for Trump...he has creditbility and is popular. As a former prosecutor, Rudy can fight Mueller on even terms. 4. Trump needs to understand this is a political fight, not a judicial one....

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions “made the right decision under the rules of the Justice Department” to recuse himself from federal probes involving Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Monday. Giuliani, a former prosecutor and current cybersecurity adviser to President Donald Trump, also swatted down reports that he could replace the attorney general, who Trump called "beleaguered” on Monday.

    Rudy Giuliani has worked with both Donald Trump and James Comey ... and if push comes to shove over who's telling the truth, Rudy's squarely in Trump's corner. The former NYC mayor arrived at LAX Sunday, and the photog grilled him hard ... grilled him about the alleged Comey memo, Lindsey Graham's statement the probe is now a criminal investigation, Trump's poll numbers ... the works. Giuliani didn't flinch ... he's as solid a Trump supporter as they come.

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is visiting the White House on Thursday but denied reports he's on the short list to replace FBI Director James Comey. “I’m not a candidate for FBI director,” he said in a New York Magazine story published Wednesday. “I am not. The president’s not gonna ask me, and I’m not gonna be FBI director.” He declined to say whether he is meeting personally with President Trump on Thursday, saying: “If I am, I wouldn’t say.” Giuliani added that he approves of Trump’s decision to fire Comey. “I think the president...

    In the aftermath of reports that Russian agents acting at the behest of strongman Vladimir Putin compromised the presidential election—and perhaps even President-elect Donald Trump himself—the incoming commander-in-chief announced he is turning to the man he passed over for the role of U.S. Secretary of State last year: former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. In a statement to the press this morning, the president-elect’s transition team announced that Giuliani would provide consultation on the matter of cyber security. Until recently, Giuliani served as head of the global cyber security practice at mega-firm Greenberg Traurig.

    Rudy Giuliani has found his place in the Trump administration. The former New York City mayor will be advising President-elect Donald Trump on cyber security issues, the presidential transition team announced Thursday. “Mayor Rudy Giuliani will be sharing his expertise and insight as a trusted friend concerning private sector cyber security problems and emerging solutions developing in the private sector,” the Trump team said in a press release. The soon-to-be president also plans to meet with corporate executives to understand their cyber challenges — as well as those that face the US government.

    America is already gearing up for one of the most exciting civic ceremonies in the world: the inauguration of our next president. But even as the eagerness for that day builds, we ought to stop and recognize the history unfolding before our eyes. By almost any measure, President-elect Donald J. Trump is leading one of the most extraordinary presidential transition periods of all time. One of President-elect Trump’s most historic characteristics is his complete outsider status. On the day President-elect Trump takes office, he will be the first individual ever to serve as president who did not have any previous...
  • Trump thought Giuliani ‘lacked stamina’ to be secretary of state

    12/14/2016 8:32:43 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 40 replies
    Donald Trump worried that Rudy Giuliani might lack the stamina to fulfill the duties of secretary of state, according to a report. Once a leading candidate to be America’s top diplomat, Giuliani fell out of favor, in part because Trump began to question the 72-year-old’s fitness, according to the Wall Street Journal, which cited an unnamed transition official. Giuliani strongly disagreed, telling the paper: “My stamina is unbelievable.” The former mayor, who was one of the billionaire’s fiercest loyalists on the campaign trail, has said he has so far passed on two cabinet postings in the Trump administration, without specifying...

    Minutes after news broke that he withdrew his name from consideration for Secretary of State, Rudy Giuliani called in to Fox News to speak to Neil Cavuto about his decision. Giuliani told Cavuto his desire to be in the Cabinet was great, but not “that great,” and he made his decision after seeing some of the other names of people on the list. He said he made the decision he would be better as an outside advisor, while mentioning that there were people in Team Trump who wanted to keep him in consideration. But as for who should get that...

    Truthfully, I know this is not the party line -- certainly not the line coming from Obama, because it's his job to act calm -- but I'm not a politician, and to me, what this feels like is if the South had won the Civil War. It took them 150 years, but they finally won. That's what this is. I don't care what people say. Yes, they lost their jobs and it's horrible. I wasn't alone in feeling this, but I would say [on the left] I was unusually sympathetic to these people. I was against NAFTA. They have absolutely...
