The former New York City mayor announced Thursday that he is resigning from the law firm, report the New York Times, Politico and the National Law Journal.

President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani told CNN on Thursday that there has not been a thorough and lengthy preparation session for a potential interview by Special Counsel Robert Mueller since Giuliani joined the team in April.

Giuliani said that while he hoped to have a decision made about a Mueller sit-down by May 17, more pressing matters at hand trump that.

The former mayor of New York City, used to be a staple in the seats near the Yankees' dugout at the old Yankee Stadium during his time in office, and given the magnitude of the series between the Red Sox and Yankees, it's no surprise he carved out time to make an appearance.

"This way, my sole concentration can be on this critically important matter for our country", Giuliani said in a statement.

"Several things delayed us, with the primary one being the whole situation with North Korea", Giuliani said of discussions over whether Trump would meet with Mueller.

Greenberg Traurig's executive chairman Richard Rosenbaum said Giuliani's resignation went into effect Wednesday.

However, Giuliani's departure may stem from tensions within the firm over his representation of the president. In interviews, Mr. Giuliani suggested that such payments were common at his firm.

Giuliani might have bothered a few folks at Greenberg in discussing the $130,000 that Trump attorney Michael Cohen paid to adult film star Stormy Daniels.

"We can not speak for Mr. Giuliani with respect to what was intended by his remarks", Greenberg managing director Jill Perry told The New York Times.

But she added, "Speaking for ourselves, we would not condone payments of the nature alleged to have been made or otherwise without the knowledge and direction of a client".
