In a statement, Sekulow quoted Trump as saying, "Rudy is great".
Giuliani, who was angling to be Trump's secretary of state, was eventually given a crumb of a role as an informal adviser on the issue of cybersecurity.
Rather than attack the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and any possible American connections to it-something his new boss likes to do-Giuliani took a diplomatic approach, one that recognizes Mueller is a public servant with a task he can't simply turn his back on.
A Justice Department Inspector General report on the department's handling of the Clinton investigations is expected to be released in coming weeks and will probably include results of leak investigations regarding the Clinton probe.
Everyone is rightfully preoccupied with the freaky decision by the Republicans to release James Comey's memos which make President Trump look anything but innocent, but let's not forget about the other utterly insane news to come out of yesterday: Rudy Giuliani is back baby!

The addition of Giuliani and the Raskins comes as the Trump team has been in disarray for almost a month, following the resignation of chief criminal attorney John Dowd.
Well-known Washington lawyers cited several reasons for declining to join the President's team, CNN reported in March, citing multiple sources familiar with their decisions.
But Giuliani has remained a supporter of the president, and he may yet be in line for a high-level position in the administration.
"John Dowd left abruptly and put Sekulow in a hole". (Giuliani will also be working strictly on a pro bono basis.) "I don't think it's going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution".
