Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, one of Donald Trump’s most active surrogates, used a CNN interview today to tout his qualification to be attorney general, the Washington Post reports. Giuliani first said he would take the job if he couldn’t point to three other lawyers who would be just as good. Asked by anchor Chris Cuomo if he had the energy to be Attorney General, Giuliani said, “I certainly have the energy, and there’s probably nobody that knows the Justice Department better than me.”

He added, “I was an assistant U.S. attorney. I was the associate attorney general of the United States, third-ranking official under Ronald Reagan. I’ve argued in front of the Supreme Court of the United States. I’ve argued in almost every circuit. And I tried, as a personal lawyer and U.S. attorney, over 50 cases… So I know the bottom of the Justice Department, and I know the top.”
