Trump Adds Giuliani to Legal Team After FBI Raid on Cohen

In a statement on Thursday, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow announced that Giuliani would be joining the president's team along with two former federal prosecutors who run a Florida law firm, Jane Serene Raskin and Martin Raskin.

Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and vocal support of the president during the campaign, was reportedly considered to be on Trump's short list for secretary of state. "He has been my friend for a long time and wants to get this matter quickly resolved for the good of the country, '" Mr Sekulow said in a statement.

In recent weeks, Mr Trump has struggled to bring on attorneys and last month lost one of the key lawyers representing him.

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.

Per Sekulow's statement, Trump said of Giuliani: "Rudy is great".

Giuliani added that a decision on whether Trump should agree to be interviewed by the special counsel's team will be "up to the president" but "we'll hash that out".

Asked by reporters on Wednesday about his plans for Mueller and Rosenstein, Trump said: "They've been saying I'm going to get rid of them for the last three months, four months, five months, and they're still here".

Giuliani and Trump spoke on Thursday about legal strategy moving forward, along with Sekulow, whom Giuliani described as a "good friend".

"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.

Media reports about Trump's apparent recruitment woes prompted the president to tweet last month, "Many lawyers and top law firms want to represent me in the Russian Federation case.Fame & fortune will NEVER be turned down by a lawyer, though some are conflicted".

In 2016, Giuliani appeared to be vying for the job that now belongs to Jeff Sessions - attorney general.

Giuliani has always been supportive of Trump politically, often appearing as a surrogate for the campaign on cable news leading up to the 2016 election.
