Rudy Giuliani said Thursday that he will join President Trump’s legal team and hopes to bring an end to the special counsel’s investigation into Russian election meddling in “a week or two.”

“I’m going to join the legal team to try to bring this to a resolution,” Giuliani told The Post.

“The country deserves it. I’ve got great admiration for President Trump.

“I’ve had a long relationship with Bob Mueller. I have great respect for him. He’s done a good job.”

Giuliani, a former US Attorney, served as New York City’s mayor when Mueller was the FBI director.

“I don’t know yet what’s outstanding. But I don’t think it’s going to take more than a week or two to get a resolution. They’re almost there.

“I’m going to ask Mueller, ‘What do you need to wrap it up?’” he said.

The president’s effort to beef up his team following the resignation of John Dowd was slowed because of rapidly moving events abroad, including the Syrian civil war and negotiations with North Korea, according to The Daily Beast.

Giuliani is a staunch ally and frequent defender of the president, whom he has known for decades.

“What I did for New York City, Donald Trump will do for America,” the former mayor said at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland in the summer of 2016.

“I have known Donald Trump for almost 30 years. And he has created and accomplished great things. But beyond that this is a man with a big heart. Every time New York City suffered a tragedy, Donald Trump was there to help.”

Giuliani will work with lawyers Ty Cobb and Jay Sekulow.

County attorney announces charging decision in probe into Prince’s death.

 

 

Carver County attorney Mark Metz said the recording artist Prince died from an accidental fentanyl overdose after he took counterfeit pills containing the powerful painkiller.
“Prince had no idea he was taking a counterfeit pill that could kill him,” Metz said.
There is no evidence showing how he obtained that counterfeit pill, he said. Because of that, there will be no criminal charges filed in the case, he said.

(CNN) — The Minnesota physician who saw Prince twice in the weeks before the artist’s death agreed to pay $30,000 to the US to settle allegations that he prescribed drugs to someone else knowing that Prince would take them.
The settlement comes nearly two years after Prince, the larger-than-life recording artist, was found unresponsive in an elevator at Paisley Park, his home and recording studio in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The cause of death was an accidental overdose of the opioid fentanyl, according to the Midwest Medical Examiner’s office. He was 57.
Federal prosecutors and the Drug Enforcement Administration had opened an investigation into how Prince obtained the prescription medication, the agencies have said.
None of the medications found in Prince’s home was prescribed to him, according to court documents unsealed in April 2017. Some bottles of opioid painkillers in his home were prescribed to his former drummer and longtime friend Kirk Johnson, and other medications were found in vitamin bottles and envelopes, search warrants showed.
Dr. Michael Schulenberg did not admit liability as part of the agreement, which settled what law enforcement officials contended was a civil violation of the Controlled Substances Act.
“Doctors are trusted medical professionals and, in the midst of our opioid crisis, they must be part of the solution,” said US Attorney Greg Brooker. “As licensed professionals, doctors are held to a high level of accountability in their prescribing practices, especially when it comes to highly addictive painkillers.”

Amy S. Conners, Schulenberg’s attorney, said in a statement the settlement was made “in order to avoid the expense, delay, and unknown outcome of litigation.” The doctor made no admission of facts and denied any liability, she said.

Conners said that Schulenberg affirmed he did not prescribe opiates to any patient with the intention that they be given to Prince.
“After he learned of Prince’s addiction, he immediately worked to refer Prince to a treatment facility and to transfer care to a chemical dependency specialist,” Conners said. “Dr. Schulenberg has previously disclosed all information regarding his care and treatment of Prince to his employers, law enforcement, and regulatory authorities in the course of his complete cooperation with all related investigations.”
‘I’m outraged’
Carver County Attorney Mark Metz is expected to speak Thursday as to whether anyone will be charged in connection to Prince’s death.
Charles “Chazz” Smith, Prince’s cousin and drummer, said he was “outraged” by the decision.
“I know the DEA and the investigators and all of the law enforcement people went through Prince’s house with a fine-tooth comb and conducted this investigation to the best of their abilities. My hats off to them,” he said.
“I’m not outraged at them. I’m outraged by people in Prince’s inner circle not speaking up about what really happened. Those people who were around him when he died, they know what went on.”
Prince, whose full name is Prince Rogers Nelson, had a complicated history with opioids, the addicting painkillers. The day before he died, his team had called an opioid addiction specialist in California seeking urgent help for him, an attorney working for the specialist and his son said in 2016.

Lock them up! Eleven House Republicans demand Jeff Sessions prosecute Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe AND the FBI lovers!

A group of 11 Republican lawmakers is asking the FBI and the Justice Department to investigate Hillary Clinton, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, as well as FBI agents and other top figures who feature in the Clinton email investigation.

‘Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately,’ according to the letter by Florida GOP Rep. Ron DeSantis and 10 other Republicans.

They complained about ‘dissimilar degrees of zealousness’ between how Clnton and President Trump were investigated, a reference to the Mueller probe.

GOP lawmakers wrote attorney general Jeff Sessions urging criminal investigations of Hillary Clinton and others

On Comey, who is in the midst of a book tour criticizing President Trump, the GOP lawmakers say he his actions suggest ‘improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda.’

On Clinton, they mention how her campaign lawyer made payments to the firm that hired Christopher Steele to produce the dossier of damaging information on Trump. Trump brought up the issue in his press conference Wednesday.

For former obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch, they cite the Uranium One deal.

The criminal referral doesn’t have the force of law. Ordinary citizens also can urge investigations.

They also accuse fired FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe with potential criminal violations, and also raise concerns with FBI lovers Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, accusing them of ‘interference’ in the Clinton email probe.

Several of the signers of the letter also pushed a second special counsel to investigate Clinton, the Hill reported.

The letter comes as former FBI director James Comey does interviews on a book tour, where he has repeatedly accused President Trump of acting like a mob boss, and urging him to life the ‘cloud’ of the Russia investigation.

Trump said at a press conference Wednesday: ‘There’s been nobody tougher on Russia than President Donald Trump.’
