Former acting White House Chief of Staff and current Special Envoy to Northern Ireland Mick Mulvaney is not happy that Rudy Giuliani was chosen to lead the “most important lawsuit in the history of the country.”
Mulvaney pointed to the fact that there are multiple experts in the field who litigate these issues on a regular basis.
President Trump recently announced that Giuliani would be spearheading the efforts:
I look forward to Mayor Giuliani spearheading the legal effort to defend OUR RIGHT to FREE and FAIR ELECTIONS! Rudy Giuliani, Joseph diGenova, Victoria Toensing, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, a truly great team, added to our other wonderful lawyers and representatives!

According to Fox News:
“I’m still a little concerned about the use of Rudy Giuliani,” Mulvaney said during an interview on FOX Business’ “Mornings with Maria.” “It strikes me that this is the most important lawsuit in the history of the country, and they’re not using the most well-noted election lawyers.”
“There are folks who do this all of the time. This is a specialty,” Mulvaney continued. “This is not a television program. This is the real thing.”
