President Donald Trump tweeted this morning about the Fox & Friend’s appearance of his attorney Jay Sekulow, who was trying to do damage control after his horrible interview with Fox News’ host Chris Wallace. Sekulow spent the morning trying to convince viewers that the president is not under investigation. However, when he got on CNN, things got crazy.
“It would not violate the law,” Sekulow maintained.
He also lauded Trump’s use of social media and the size of his following.
“What the president did using social media will be in the history books,” Sekulow said.
“You know what’s going on,” co-host Steve Doocy said. “When you look at the political atmosphere and the way The Washington Post goes after the president, they go after him every day. You go on their website right now there are 25 anti-Trump stories.
“And they’re not breaking stories,” echoed Brian Kilmeade. “These people are picking up the phone, they’re calling them who want to destroy the president.”
When Sekulow got to CNN, the questions became tougher. However, he continued to insist that Trump reacted to a Washington Post article, which he claims was false because the sources were anonymous.
“Comey talking about whether or not the president is under investigation has nothing to do with dealing with now with Mueller, who, common sense, if nothing else, is looking at whether the circumstances surrounding the firing of Comey,” CNN host Chris Cuomo said. “So saying the president can’t be under investigation because of Comey is illogical.”
Sekulaow insisted that the president hasn’t been notified about being under investigation, but Cuomo pointed out that you don’t need to get notified when you are fall under it.
The CNN host wondered why neither Trump or Sekulow called Meuller to find out if the president is actually under investigation.
“And why you haven’t picked up that phone to find out is a little odd,” Cuomo said. “If I hired you I’d want you to make that phone call.”
“Heh, well, you haven’t hired us because we represent the president of the United States,” was his only retort.
“Thank god,” Cuomo said. “Thank god I don’t need you right now, Jay Sekulow.”
“That’s good, I’m glad to hear that,” Sekulow said chuckling, not realizing he was being mocked.
“Look, you’re asking me to pick up the phone on an investigation we don’t even know exists,” Sekulow said.
“No, I’m not,” Cuomo said. “You know it exists. You know Mueller is looking at this. Why don’t you just pick up the phone and find out if it matters so much to the president, whether or not he’s being looked at, find out.”
“I’m just one lawyer!” Sekulow exclaimed at one point. “I haven’t made that call. That’s the end of that line of inquiry,”
