Donald Trump’s Lawyer: Nothing Illegal About Donald Trump, Jr’s Meeting

“Everybody is coming to the same conclusion [that] there’s nothing illegal about that meeting,” Sekulow told NBC’s Chuck Todd.

President Donald Trump’s attorney, Jay Sekulow, told NBC News on Sunday that there was nothing illegal about Donald Trump, Jr.’s meeting with a Russian attorney during the 2016 presidential campaign.

On “Meet the Press,” NBC’s Chuck Todd asked Sekulow why it has taken six days to find out who was in the meeting that occurred between Donald Trump, Jr. and the Russian attorney. Todd commented that it looks like an effort to mislead the American people at the very least, if not a cover up.

“You use the phrase, Chuck, ‘cover up.’ I mean let’s be realistic here. You’ve had lawyers on your broadcast, and NBC’s had lawyers on their network, and everybody is coming to the same conclusion regarding the legality. There’s nothing illegal about that meeting,” Sekulow responded. “With regard to how the information came out, as I said, that was information that was controlled not by my client, not by the president. It was controlled by Donald Trump, Jr.”
