President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, has been unafraid to fight back against the left, and he recently called for an investigation into former FBI Director James Comey’s “illegal” leak of personal memos to the media.
Going one step further, Sekulow asserted on Wednesday that we need a special counsel reviewing why President Obama did nothing to stop Russia interference in our election after he assured the American people that we were safe.
On Wednesday, Trump’s attorney was interviewed on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom, during which he questioned why the Obama administration’s failure to respond to Russian interference hasn’t been scrutinized more thoroughly.
Why do we have a special counsel dealing with the Russia hacking when they had that evidence and did nothing?
Sekulow maintained that Democrats and the mainstream media have concocted a year-long witch hunt that has lead to zero evidence of any wrongdoing by the president:
You know when the president said early on this was a witch hunt? Every day that goes by, I’m not sure that’s fair to witch hunts to keep calling it that. It’s beyond that.
“I’m telling you what I think is owed here: an apology to the President, an apology to the American people,” Sekulow said, calling on Obama to testify before Congress. full story
