Sekulow: Trump will decide whether he continues with Müller
Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow, Sean Hannity says that, although there is no constitutional basis for the special counsel’s interview with President Turmp, which is ultimately the responsibility of the decision to the President.
President Trump team is legally engaged in “ongoing discussions” with the Special Counsel, Robert Müller the team to a possible sit-down with the President and Federal investigators, Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said in an interview on Fox News’ “Hannity” on Tuesday.
But Sekulow added, to Trump the decision, ultimately, he was strongly leaning against the grant Mueller access to the President.
“To be honest, it is the position of the legal team, and it was not quite clear, to move that there is a constitutional basis, a interview to the front,” he said.
Sekulow cited a number of concerns Mueller to investigate, saying it was initiated, because the non-verified DNC-funded Steele Dossier and what he described as political leaks, the by fired FBI Director James Comey motivated.
“The depth of the corruption that led to this investigation, and, frankly continue to penetrate this investigation is unprecedented,” Sekulow, Sean Hannity said.
Sekulow addressed the constitutional concerns, the Federal investigation of alleged obstruction of justice by trump, saying it was “inappropriate” to pursue the charges against the President in the exercise of its inherent constitutional powers, such as the triggering of an FBI Director.
“When you explained the constitutional problems involved through an interview, it is very serious,” Sekulow. “It raises very serious constitutional questions, the core of the separation of powers and [the President] article II authority.”
SEKULOW TAKE THE BLAME FOR “BAD INFORMATION” FOR THE CONFUSION WITH THE TRUMP TOWER
Sekulow the comments echo those of colleagues Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani, in the last month, said Miller, could you not force, the trump card is the cooperation through a subpoena, because the Federal investigators were not necessary for his testimony.
On Sunday, Sekulow blame “bad information” to deny falsely that the President had a role in the elaboration of its campaign is in response to a key-June 2016 meeting with a Russian lawyer at the Trump Tower.
Donald Trump Jr, his brother-in-law, Jared Kushner, and then-campaign Chairman, Paul Manafort, were known to have been a meeting with the Kremlin-linked lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
A first July 2017-statement, dictated by President Trump and published by Trump Jr immediately after the meeting came to light that read, in part: “We have discussed, a program on the adoption of Russian children that was active, and popular among American families years ago.” The statement, no mention of Trump officials seeking damaging information on Hillary Clinton, Trump was later suggested, in fact, the point of the meeting.
Müller’s team is allegedly looking into the president’s measures in relation to the meeting, and his tweets.
But Sekulow Hannity said that Müller, the actions would have long-lasting negative impact on the presidential authority and democracy itself.
“This is not a trial version. This is a political process, said forward,” Sekulow. “The constitutional issues … in fact, the most important questions that this study poses. There are serious constitutional implications, not only for this President but for the presidency, and that is what history will remember.”
Sekulow, however, declined to say whether Trump would declassify and release justice Department and the FBI probe documents sought currently by house investigators by subpoena, in connection with possible anti-Trump bias and the Russia.
“He is to be respected, the process is not explained in the place; this is not the decision we are making, as his private lawyers-we are the White House Counsel”,” Sekulow. “The decision that I’m sure will be discussed.”
