Trump’s Lawyer Repeatedly Denied Trump Was Involved in Trump Jr.’S
Statement. But He Was.

President Trump’s personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow, has some explaining to do.
The Washington Post reported Monday night that the president himself was responsible for the drafting of Donald Trump Jr.’s misleading statement after the New York Times revealed that the younger Trump had arranged a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Sources say White House advisers had decided to be transparent about the meeting, but the president changed the game plan at the last minute to misleadingly suggest that the meeting was about adoption. The full truth soon came out that the meeting was arranged to discuss compromising information, supposedly from the Russian government, about Hillary Clinton.
The problem for Sekulow? He denied at least twice, pretty unequivocally, that the president played any role in the drafting of that statement.
Several of Sekulow’s claims in defense of Trump have come under scrutiny. I did a whole annotation of his Sunday show appearances last month.
But these statements are about as contradictory as it gets, when compared to The Post’s new report. What’s remarkable is that, as Stephanopoulos noted, the New York Times had reported at the time, on July 11, that the president himself approved the statement. Ultimately, the people said, the president signed off on a statement from Donald Trump Jr. for the Times, it wrote.
So it’s difficult to believe Sekulow didn’t have an opportunity to verify that information. Instead, he offered a broad and complete denial. And then, four days later, he offered the same broad denial.
