Rudy Giuliani Just Lost His Day Job

Rudy Giuliani officially resigns from law firm dedicates himself to President Trump's legal team

Rudy Giuliani officially resigns from law firm dedicates himself to President Trump's legal team

Giuliani took a leave of absence from the firm in April to represent Trump, but, he said, "the pressing demands" of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation led him to decide to permanently resign.

New details are emerging about Rudy Giuliani's bitter break-up with his law firm, Greenberg Traurig.

"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", the firm's executive chairman, Richard A. Rosenbaum, said in a statement to The New York Times.

After Giuliani's resignation, effective Wednesday, was made public, Greenberg Traurig spokeswoman Jill Perry told The New York Times,"We can not speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks".

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".

Firm partners had chafed over Mr. Giuliani's public comments about payments that another of Mr. Trump's lawyers, Michael D. Cohen, made to secure the silence of a pornographic film actress who said she had an affair with Mr. Trump.

Critics are skeptical of Giuliani's objective on the Trump team, many puzzled at what appears to be Giuliani daylighting as an administration media surrogate. "Speaking for ourselves, we would not condone payments of the nature alleged to have been made or otherwise without the knowledge and direction of a client".

In a statement Thursday, Giuliani said the move would be permanent.

Since Giuliani joined Trump's legal team, he and the president have altered their story about the payment and its timing.

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

Most people around the President say that sitting for an interview would be a big mistake, though Trump said last week that he would "love to speak" with Mueller on the condition that he's "treated fairly".
