In a bizarre interview with Fox News Host Chris Wallace on Sunday, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow seemed to contradict himself on whether the president was under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
At 3:02 in the video below, Sekulow states clearly,” Now he’s being investigated by the Department of justice, because the Special Counsel under the Special Counsel regulations reports still to the Department of Justice not an independent counsel, so he’s being investigated for taking the action that the Attorney General and the Deputy Attorney General recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the terminnation.”
When Wallace responded, “Now you’re saying he is being investigated,” Sekulow made a dizzying pivot. “Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand,” he said with frustration. “We have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the President of the United States.”
It’s an entertaining exchange, which concluded with the talking yam’s attorney admitting, he doesn’t actually know whether he’s being investigated or not.
I’m loving Chris Wallace’s coverage of the Russia investigation. His fiery interrogations show a lot more balls than most of the pundits on the so-called liberal outposts. The only other guy who comes close is another Republican — Joe Scarborough. Incredible, maybe the talking heads on some of these other shows should take a page out of their playbook!
And is it just me, or does Jay Sekulow remind anyone else of Martin Short’s character Nathan Thurm?
