Jay Sekulow now trying to clean up his previous denials that Trump was involved in putting out a statement on the Trump Tower meeting, seems to imply someone misled him. “I had bad information at that time and made a mistake … over time facts develop.” (via ABC) pic.twitter.com/ELPCEDO2Ch

He shouldn’t feel bad, Trump has lied to all of us.

Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Donald Trump, said Sunday that he made a mistake by denying Trump was involved in a misleading statement last year on Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting at Trump Tower with a Russian attorney.
“I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement,” Sekulow said on ABC’s “This Week.” “I’ve talked about that before. That happens when you have cases like this.”
Last year, Sekulow denied Trump had signed off on a statement responding to revelations in The New York Times about the meeting Trump Jr. and other top Trump campaign hands had in June 2016 after being told about the opportunity to receive Russian dirt on Hillary Clinton. That initial statement from Trump Jr. said the meeting primarily concerned “a program about the adoption of Russian children.” But after further Times reporting revealed the motivation related to Clinton, Trump Jr. then issued a new statement acknowledging an offer of allegedly damaging information on Clinton and the Democratic Party, and he ultimately published his emails related to the meeting.
Sekulow’s “bad information” had to have come from his client, so what he is really saying is that Trump liked to him and then sent him out to tell those lies on national television.
In most cases that would be the last straw and the attorney would quit, but Sekulow clearly has not ethics.
Sekulow also said that Trump might refuse a subpoena and that the fight might go all the way to the Supreme Court.
Wait, I thought we heard that Trump WANTED to testify in front of Mueller and that they were simply working out the details.
Or was that just bullshit too?
Never mind, I know the answer.
