On Tuesday during the Sean Hannity radio show, Trump Jr’s Attorney (who also represents his father) Jay Sekulow gave an interview. Some of the statements he said have many cheering and others are downright furious. Sekulow stated:
Sean asked Sekulow to weigh-in on the media’s frenzy over the meeting, with some news outlets calling the publicly released emails proof of “treason.”
“Well the interview with the lawyer establishes that in fact the meeting, in reality, had nothing to do with anything involving the election. That she was basically lobbying for a change in a law,” said Sekulow.
“Here’s what we do know: nothing happened. She got no documents, no documents were released, no documents were given out, nothing on Hillary Clinton, no follow-up, no case, no issue, done,” he added.
Hannity asked the White House counsel if the President’s son was in any legal danger for knowingly meeting with a foreign agent, even if the discussions yielded no results.
“What about the idea in the email that it does mention in some capacity […] Donald Trump at least in an email thought it was somebody, operatives in the Russian government?”
“There’s no illegality in the meeting. Opposition research is not an unusual discussion within a political campaign. So, here’s what you got, no illegality in the meeting,” said Sekulow. “At the end of the day there’s nothing to it […] None of that ended up being true. None of it happened.”
“What do you really have here? You have a meeting that produced nothing. That’s not a crime,” he added.
