Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s lawyer, declared Sunday that NOTHING in a 2016 meeting between Trump advisers and a Russian lawyer was “against the law” and defended the president and members of his team for denying contact with the Russians.(VIDEO BELOW)
Chris Wallace instantly gets schooled by Jay Sekulow. Wallace acts like an interrogator instead of journalist and is way over the line. Jay held his ground with grace and facts, while Wallace had an obvious script. Wallace was doing his liberal best to degrade Sekulow and the Trump administration. Epic FAIL! Sekulow drop the bombs on Wallace. (VIDEO BELOW)
Seckulow quickly clears President Trump by saying:
“THERE WAS NOTHING IN THAT MEETING THAT IS ILLEGAL, AGAINST THE LAW. THE MEETING, THE DISCUSSION, WAS NOT A VIOLATION OF THE LAW.” JAY SEKULOW
THE MEETING WAS NOT A VIOLATION OF THE LAW!
Most politicians would have gone to a meeting like the one Don jr attended in order to get info on an opponent. That's politics!

“Opposition research is a big part of the campaign,” Sekulow added.
He also said the president’s statements “have been clear” about him having no connection with Russian President Vladimir Putin or other Russian officials in trying to win the White House race.
Trump did not attend the meeting with the Russian lawyer. And James Comey, who served as FBI director before Trump fired him in May, has acknowledged that Trump was not the target of the agency’s Russia meddling-collusion probe.
Sekulow also blasted Comey for leaking memos of several private meetings with Trump and now shopping his time as FBI director for a book deal.
“He leaked information for one purpose and one purpose only: to get a special counsel,”Sekulow said. (h/t Fox News)
