President Trump’s lawyer Jay Sekulow battled Fox News Chris Wallace in a tense Sunday morning interview over what the Commander-in-chief thinks and innuendos.
After watching this interview, I saw something I never thought I would witness, the destruction of Wallace on his own show. Wallace tried to press Sekulow on what Trump was thinking and questions Sekulow wouldn’t know or divulge and when Jay responded telling him he was wrong, Wallace got hot under the collar.
I haven’t seen Wallace this off-balance in a long time and his questions were not formed to get information but more so to create a narrative that he would walk away from claiming he won the day.
Sorry Wallace, you got beat on your home court this Sunday morning.

In a heated interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Trump attorney Jay Sekulow insisted — as he did on the other Sunday political talk shows — that the president was not under criminal investigation, despite reporting from The Washington Post and the president’s own tweet that suggested he was a target of the investigation.
The interview became lively when Sekulow seemed to contradict himself, suggesting that Trump was under investigation after firing Comey on the recommendations of the attorney general and deputy attorney general.
In reality, the Business Insider is probably a left-leaning news outlet so let me say, Sekulow was responding to Wallace question about a tweet that he was under investigation. It seemed Wallace forgot his own question.
“He takes the action that they also, by the way, recommended. And now he’s being investigated by the Department of Justice,” Sekulow said. “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.”
“You’ve now said that he’s being investigated,” Wallace said.
“No, Chris. Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand: We have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the United States,” Sekulow replied.
“Sir, you’ve just said two times that he’s being investigated,” Wallace said.
As I mentioned before, Wallace forgot his original question and tried to create a contradiction that wasn’t there. Sekulow corrected him even though Wallace didn’t like it.
“I just gave you the legal theory of how the constitution works,” Sekulow said. “If in fact it’s correct that the president is being investigated, he’s being investigated for taking an action that an agency told him to take. That is protected under the constitution.”
