Chris Wallace shreds Trump lawyer for both confirming and denying investigation

Jay Sekulow, a conservative activist and attorney for President Donald Trump, insisted on Sunday that the president was not under investigation for obstruction of justice even though Trump has said otherwise on Twitter.

During an interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, Sekulow defended Trump’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

“He takes the action that [the Attorney General’s office] recommended and now he’s being investigated by the Department of Justice,” Sekulow complained. “He’s being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the terminations!”

“You’ve now said he is being investigated after saying [he isn’t],” Wallace observed.

“No, he’s not being investigated!” Sekulow shot back.

“You just said he’s being investigated,” Wallace noted.

Sekulow tried again to say that the president is not under investigation, but Wallace interrupted.

“Sir, you just said two times that he’s being investigated,” the Fox News host said. “And he’s not just being investigated for firing Comey, there’s also what he said to Comey when Comey was still the FBI director.”

“I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth,” Sekulow complained. “When I have been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation.”

    Chris is an idiot and a shill. He just wants to put it out in the ether that "Trump is under investigation". He doesn't care whether it's even remotely true. "Straight answer" my ass.

    There is no investigation. Trump could've used a different word. The media must be going crazy chasing their own tail. Trump is so awesome!

    How is this guy a lawyer? I get that Chris Wallace is a tough interviewer but Sekulow sounded either really dumb or very much unprepared.

    "Notified" is the operative word. His staff chooses what they tell him, so he will stop incriminating himself with his deranged tweets.

    Not only do liberals brains not work but clearly their ears dont either. Lawyer clearly stated that he was stating a hypothetical and anyone with any intelligence can see that Also love how Chris Wallace keeps saying "You dont know that he isnt under investigation"..since when do we have a system that requires proving innocence? Our legal system is innocent til PROVEN guilty.

    Trump can not be under investigation for firing Cuomo or for hoping that Cuomo let Flinn off. He has the constitutional right to do these things. It is politely bad but not illegal for him to do under the Constitution. Sorry Chris
