  • Trump Lawyer Contradicts Trump Tweet, Stumps Sunday Beltway Hosts

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 Post report 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.

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.

Earlier in the morning, Kellyanne Conway summed up the case Sekulow had made ad nauseam on Sunday.

Sekulow did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment Sunday night. "That the President was not and is not a target of investigation". What Sekulow - or anyone, for that matter - may lack in proven skills tailored to the task at hand, he may make up for in loyalty to Trump. In May, Sekulow guest-hosted the latter's radio show. 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. Late a year ago, ACLJ sued the Justice Department, seeking records of the June meeting at the Phoenix airport between then-Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch and former president Bill Clinton.

"Let me be clear here", Sekulow said at one point this weekend, according to the Hill. This is an attack on the presidency.
