James Comey thinks he is beyond the law for what he did to the President by leaking information about Trump to his Columbia University professor friend but don’t tell Jay Sekulow.
Sekulow is one of President Trump’s lawyers and he’s pissed that former FBI director would be this careless in releasing classified information to his friend to get back at President Trump. He joined Fox & Friends on Tuesday morning to express his anger while also addressing Donald Trump Jr situation being blown up into an international scandal by the media.
Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow appeared on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, and he defended President Trump over the emerging legal matters putting the administration under pressure.
Sekulow was asked about the recent reports about James Comey‘s memos, and whether the former FBI director leaked sensitive information by releasing them to the press. While Fox & Friends acknowledged they were mistaken with their previous coverage on the matter, Sekulow argued that there’s sufficient legal grounds to say Comey broke the law by releasing his conversation with president.
“It was covered by executive privilege at a minimum and James Comey ignored that when he illegally…distributed that information for one purpose only: to get a special prosecutor,” said Sekulow. “He gets a special prosecutor based on illegally leaked information. What does that tell you about the whole basis for this special counsel?”
Sekulow also went after the law professor who acted as the intermediary between Comey and The New York Times. Daniel Richman says Comey’s memos were not marked classified when he informed the press of their existence, though Sekulow argued Comey’s “taking that property was violation of the law” by default.
