Donald Trump has now hired Christian right lawyer Jay Sekulow, whose track record of lying is almost as bad as his own, and is sending him out to defend him in the media. But he can’t seem to decide whether Trump is under investigation or not.
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.”
So crystal clear that you literally contradicted yourself in consecutive sentences. Maybe this is like the trinity. If Jesus can be “fully man” and “fully god” at the same time, I suppose Trump can be under investigation and not under investigation at the same time. If, that is, you decide to throw rationality out the window in both cases.
