Former President Donald Trump’s longtime personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, is “not currently representing President Trump in any legal matters,” senior Trump adviser Jason Miller told CNN on Tuesday. The former New York City mayor was the face of Trump’s failed bid to overturn the presidential election results, but his legal work with the former President dates back years.
Miller said in a tweet that Giuliani remained an “ally and a friend” and is not representing Trump only because there are no pending cases in which he’s involved. Trump had signaled frustration with Giuliani last month. He told his staff to stop paying Giuliani’s legal fees, a person familiar with the matter previously told CNN, though aides were not clear if Trump was serious about his instructions.
