Trump’s Attorney Contradicts Himself And President on Investigation

By Steve Neavling

Donald Trump’s attorney repeatedly denied the president is under investigation before saying twice “he’s being investigated” and then denying he said it moments earlier during a contentious interview on “Fox News Sunday.” 

Confused?

So was host Chris Wallace, whose refusal to let the attorney, Jay Sekulow, get away with contradictory statements about the investigation led to a tense back-and-forth.

Sekulow, who set out Sunday to deny the president is under investigation, said Trump fired FBI Director James Comey last month “based on numerous events, including recommendations from his attorney general and the deputy attorney general’s office.”

“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. So that’s the constitutional threshold question here,” Sekulow said.

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.”

Wallace noted that the “tape will speak for itself.”

The contradictions really began Friday, when Trump tweeted, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt!”
