Jay Sekulow: ‘Why Don’t We Have a Special Counsel Reviewing…President Obama?’
Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for President Donald Trump, was back at Fox News Wednesday to rail against what he calls “the so-called Russian probe.”
Appearing on America’s Newsroom, the attorney pointed the finger at Trump’s predecessor, former President Barack Obama, and questioned why his administration’s actions with regard to Russian election interference aren’t being scrutinized more thoroughly.
“Why do we have a special counsel dealing with the Russia hacking when they had that evidence and did nothing?” Sekulow said. “Why don’t we have a special counsel reviewing why President Obama did nothing after he assured the American people — he gets intelligence briefings but assures the American people that Russia did not interfere with the election.”
As for the allegations against his client, Sekulow maintains that there is no there there.
“You know when the president said early on this was a witch hunt?” Sekulow said. “Every day that goes by, I’m not sure that’s fair to witch hunts to keep calling it that. It’s beyond that.”
Sekulow, remarkably, was not asked about — and therefore did not comment on — reports by The Guardian and The Washington Post published Tuesday which claim that millions of dollars were funneled to Sekulow’s family from a charity controlled by Sekulow.
