Chris Wallace Grills Sekulow: Aren’t Past Team Trump Denials of Russian Contacts Now ‘Suspect’?

On Fox News Sunday this morning, Chris Wallace repeatedly grilled Jay Sekulow over whether the past denials of Russian contact by people on the Trump Team now look “suspect.”

Sekulow, a member of President Trump‘s legal team, did the Full Ginsburg on the Sunday shows this morning, and his Fox interview started with Wallace playing clips of Donald Trump Jr., the President himself, and Vice President Mike Pence insisting there were no Russian contacts.

Wallace asked, “Do you now acknowledge that all of those denials are at the very least suspect?”

Sekulow was quick to bring up James Comey, which led Wallace to interject, “This doesn’t have anything to do with my question.”

When Sekulow said he would answer the question, Wallace replied, “It depends how long we’re gonna take to get there.”

Sekulow brought up Comey’s actions––leaking his memos to help create a special counsel––but again Wallace said, “I’m not asking you about any of that.”

They continued going back and forth over whether the Don Jr. meeting itself was improper, with Wallace confronting Sekulow on whether it showed “intent and willingness” to collude.
