Sekulow Hits Cable News Circuit Hard For Trump

Sekulow Hits Cable News Circuit Hard For Trump

"So nothing has changed", Sekulow said.

Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow invoked Trump's Article 1 powers under the Constitution to justify the President's firing of James Comey, which suggests that Trump believes that he could use the same path to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

Why he's representing Trump: "If the president of the United States asks you for legal advice and you're a lawyer and you're serving your country and the Constitution, you do it", Sekulow said on his radio show earlier this month.

As he did in exchanges with other news anchors, Sekulow bullishly emphasized to Wallace that Trump's tweet should only be interpreted as a response to the Post report and insisted that that no one has notified Trump or his team that the president is under investigation.

On Fox News, on MSNBC, on CNN, and on CBS, Sekulow stumped for the Trump defense campaign, claiming that Trump was not under investigation and providing "constitutional legal theories" for Trump's behavior.

The Pentagon justified the massive sale by saying the jets-reportedly 39 of them-would increase "security cooperation" between the two countries.

Sekulow renewed the suggestion that Trump fired the Federal Bureau of Investigation director at the recommendation of the deputy attorney general. "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".

"Sir, you've just said two times that he's being investigated", Wallace said. "I don't tell him what to write or not write", Sekulow said. Sekulow again repeated that he can not read minds. And in 1990, Sekulow launched the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), viewed as the conservative counterpart to the ACLU, and has defended numerous evangelical causes. "You're asking me to read people's minds".

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

"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.
