President Donald Trump kicked off the weekend with a tweet announcing, "I'm being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director".
The attorney did the rounds on the morning shows on Sunday, appearingon CNN's "State of the Union", where he argued Trump is not under investigation, despite the president tweeting "I am being investigated" last week. As Salon's Heather Digby Parton points out, Sekulow's wife, brother, sons and sister-in-law "dominate the boards of both organizations" in an arrangement not dissimilar from how Trump ran his business and, to a lesser extent, the White House.
Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow invoked Trump's Article 1 powers under the Constitution to justify the President's firing of James Comey, which suggests that Trump believes that he could use the same path to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.
"There is an audience for that, and the base is important when you're under fire", Confessore said.
Chris Wallace was not the only anchor to dunk on Trump's lawyer this weekend, as Jake Tapper questioned Sekulow about Trump's tweet.
The Fox News host didn't let up, again telling Sekulow that he doesn't know whether Trump is under investigation or not.
"No, he's not being investigated", Sekulow interjected. "So he's being investigated for taking the action the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency that recommended the determination".
Things continued to go down hill from there. Sekulow again repeated that he can not read minds.
"You just said two times that he's being investigated", Wallace said. "Actually, what I'm trying to get is a straight answer out of you".
