Appearing on several morning news shows Sunday, Sekulow attempted to convince viewers that the president was not speaking literally when he tweeted Friday: "I'm being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director".
Trump tapped Jay Sekulow earlier this month to join his legal team that is advising and defending him on FBI and congressional investigations looking into possible collusion between members of his 2016 campaign and the Russian government. "If the Washington Post leaks were correct, the president would be under investigation for taking an action that the Justice Department asked him to take".
"You're right, Chris, I can't read the mind of the special prosecutor", he said.
No. The context of the tweet, I just gave you the legal theory, Chris, of how the Constitution works.
When Wallace pointed out that Sekulow had just contradicted himself by acknowledging Trump was under investigation, the president's attorney accused the host of "putting words in my mouth, when I've been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been undeyinvestigation".
"There is not an investigation of the President of the United States".
