Sekulow Hits Cable News Circuit Hard For Trump

Jeff Sessions témoigne au Sénat le 13 juin 2017 à WashingtonSAUL LOEB

"So he's being investigated for taking the action the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency that recommended the determination".

Jay Sekulow, an attorney on President Donald Trump's legal team, on Sunday sent mixed messages about Trump's remarks on Robert Mueller, special counsel overseeing the probe into Russian election meddling, his comments about the investigation itself, and whether Trump is being investigated for potential obstruction of justice.

Sekulow said Trump is savvy on Twitter and reaches over 100 million people whenever he wants to get a message across on social media.

This is absurd, because as we already know, Trump has confirmed on national television that he was going to fire Comey regardless of Rosenstein's recommendation and that his motive was rooted in unhappiness with Comey's handling of the Russian Federation probe. The Washington Post has reported that in that meeting, Trump - having already chose to fire Comey - demanded that Rosenstein memo as a rationale.

"He takes the action that they also, by the way, recommended". It's hard to imagine this meeting not coming under scrutiny. Kilmeade said. "You're his lawyer".

The attorney did the rounds on the morning shows on Sunday, appearing on CNN's "State of the Union", where he argued Trump is not under investigation, despite the president tweeting "I am being investigated" last week.

Sekulow: No, Chris, I said that - let me be crystal clear so you completely understand.

"No, he's not being investigated", Sekulow interjected.

Things continued to go down hill from there.

"Well then, don't tell me what I'm trying to do, because you don't know what I'm trying to do", Wallace replied. "Which I don't read minds". Sekulow again repeated that he can not read minds.

"I just gave you the legal theory of how the constitution works", Sekulow said.
