Trump Lawyer Jay Sekulow Takes On Chuck Todd, Jake Tapper, Chris Wallace, John Dickerson In One Day


Member of President Trump's legal team and former Fox News contributor Jay Sekulow did three morning talk shows on Sunday, defending the president over and over. First, against CNN's Jake Tapper on 'State of the Union.' (above)

Sekuow argued that the president is not under investigation. The only source reporting that he is under investigation are anonymous leaks to the Washington Post, Sekulow says. And when President Trump tweeted " .. " he was referring to the Post article's claim, not confirming it.

Next Sekulow moved on to 'Fox News Sunday' host Chris Wallace (below), where he faced questions about.

He told Wallace: "The president has not been notified by anyone that he's under investigation. That tweet, Chris, was in response to The Washington Post story that alleged that five unnamed sources, anonymous sources, leaked to The Washington Post that the president was, in fact, under investigation. So that tweet was in response to that. There's been no notification of an investigation. Nothing's changed since James Comey said the president was not a target or subject of investigation. Nothing's changed."

About the president's tweet, he repeated that it was not a confirmation of an investigation: "The context of the tweet, I just gave you the legal theory, Chris, of how the Constitution works. If, in fact, it was correct that the president was being investigated, he would be investigating for taking action that an agency told him to take. So that is protected under the Constitution as his article one power. That's all I said. So I appreciate you trying to rephrase it, but I'm just being really direct with you, Chris."

Next, Sekulow appeared on 'Meet the Press' with Chuck Todd (below). Sekulow faced the same questions:

"The president sent out that tweet in response to the Washington Post story with the five unnamed sources," he repeated to Chuck Todd. "From unknown agencies. That's why he put that in the tweet."

"I want to be very clear here," he continued. "The president has not been, and is not under investigation."

Finally, Sekulow appeared on CBS's 'Face The Nation':
