WEST PALM BEACH, Florida (AP) - President Donald Trump gains a former U.S. attorney, a past presidential candidate and a TV-savvy defender with the addition of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani to his legal team.
And this comes at a time when the White House is looking for ways to bring special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation to a close.
Trump has touted Giuliani's toughness and star power as his team weighs whether the president should sit for an interview with Mueller's team.
For weeks, Trump had grown increasingly frustrated with the cable news chatter that he couldn't hire a big-name attorney.
He hopes the addition of Giuliani silences his critics.
