Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and President Donald Trump's newest lawyer, met yesterday with special counsel Robert Mueller to discuss a face-to-face meeting between the investigator and the president.


The Washington Post reported Wednesday that according to three sources briefed on the meeting, Giuliani "conveyed the ongoing resistance of Trump and his advisers to an interview with federal investigators," but also communicated that they are not closed off to the concept.

The former mayor's hiring caused waves last week after it was reported that he'd joined the president's legal team despite not practicing law in decades in hopes of ending Mueller's probe by the summer.
