Giuliani: Trump special counsel interview decision delayed
13 May 2018, 12:17 | Tara Lloyd
But in a statement on Thursday, the former New York City mayor said he meant to permanently resign from the firm.
Incredibly, that's what Giuliani toldSean Hannity during his how infamous interview two weeks ago, while trying - and failing - to explain the $130,000 hush-money payment that Trump's attorney made to Stormy Daniels on the eve of the 2013 election.
"In light of the pressing demands of the Mueller investigation, I believe it is in everyone's best interest that I make it a permanent resignation", Giuliani said.
But it's likely those at-times baffling television appearances are what cost Giuliani his law job.
Giuliani made explosive headlines after revealing that Trump reimbursed Cohen for paying Daniels, in order to stave off allegations that the payment was a campaign contribution.
Giuliani was actually hired by Trump to handle negotiations with special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, the need for a sit-down interview between Trump and investigators.
Significantly, Trump has taken to the Fox News airwaves to sing the praises of a quartet of "absolute warriors" - relatively junior GOP congressmen Jim Jordan, Mark Meadows, Matt Gaetz and Ron DeSantis.
Shortly after his role on Trump's team was announced in late April, Giuliani told CNN that he would be able to wrap up his efforts on the Mueller investigation in as quickly as "a couple of weeks".
All are key members of the ultra-conservative, pro-Trump House Freedom Caucus on Capitol Hill and are known to receive frequent personal phone calls from the president and, in some case, invites to travel with him on Air Force One.
Some have speculated the departure is due to more than just the Mueller probe.
Giuliani joined the team almost one month after the resignation of John Dowd, a former personal attorney to Trump. In the past McGahn was credited with foiling POTUS's plan to fire Mueller and also attorney general Jeff Sessions, by threatening to resign himself in protest.
"It would be very helpful for the public to witness a discussion between Mr. Giuliani and me concerning the facts of the case", Avenatti said Tuesday in a Twitter post.
