Rudolph Giuliani is joining Trump's legal team dealing with the Mueller investigation.
Curiously enough, I wrote a post on Rudi and his involvement with the Clinton email scandal two days ago.
It turns out Giuliani was also the subject of several references in James Comey's new book, "A Higher Loyalty."
In his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Comey did say he was aware that Giuliani was on TV in 2016 predicting surprise developments from the FBI just before the November election. Giuliani’s comments suggested he was privy to the discovery of more Clinton emails on a laptop belonging to former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), which the FBI got while investigating him on charges of sexting with a minor.
“Yes, I saw that,” Comey said. “It’s part of what I ordered investigated.”
At a Senate hearing last year, days before Comey was fired, he was also asked specifically about leaks to Giuliani. Comey was careful not to accuse Giuliani of anything and said it wasn’t clear whether people at the FBI were leaking to him.
“I don’t know yet,” Comey told Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.). “But if I find out that people were leaking information about our investigations, whether it’s to reporters or to private parties, there will be severe consequences. … It’s a matter that I’m very, very interested in.”It's reported that Giuliani's new role will be to advise Trump on ways he can bring the Mueller investigation to an early end.
