Poor Jay Sekulow. Stands by his man and gets undermined anyway.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday said President Donald Trump did “as any father would” when he worked on a statement brushing off his eldest son’s June 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-linked lawyer as insignificant.
“The President weighed in as any father would, based on the limited information that he had,” Sanders said during her daily briefing.
The Washington Post on Monday night reported that Trump dictated his son Donald Trump Jr.’s initial statement about his meeting with a Russian lawyer. Trump Jr. attended the meeting after being promised damaging information on Hillary Clinton as part of a Russian government effort to help his father’s campaign, but characterized it as a discussion about Russian adoption in his initial response.
Jay Sekulow, a member of Trump’s outside legal team, repeatedly denied in July that President Trump had anything to do with his son’s statement.
When this is all over, the tell-all books from all the former Trump folks will be all over the remainder tables at the last Barnes & Noble in America.
