Sekulow responded by saying the president hasn't said anything about the deputy AG while stating that POTUS is now being investigated by the Department of Justice, leading to a contentious back-and-forth as Wallace pointed out Sekulow just stated the president is under investigation.
In a heated interview with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, Jay Sekulow, a member of President Donald Trump's personal legal team, repeatedly insisted that the president is not under investigation by the special counsel overseeing the federal Russian Federation probe, contradicting a Washington Postreport and Trump's own tweet declaring that he is a subject of the inquiry.
"So he's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take, by the agency who recommended the termination", Sekulow said.
American Lawyer magazine wrote at the time that Sekulow was "rude and aggressive" and "so nervous that at times he appeared almost out of control".
Sekulow joined Trump's personal legal team, which includes Marc Kasowitz, Trump's go-to lawyer for years on both personal and business matters; Mark Bowe, who works with Kasowitz; and newly hired John Dowd, a well-known DC-based attorney.

There's only one thing missing: "facts".
After Comey's closely watched testimony before the Senate earlier this month, Sekulow called the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director the "leaker in chief" and said he should face charges.
