Jay Sekulow said that the former FBI Director had no right to disclose his meetings with the president.
Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s lawyer, told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday that former FBI Director James Comey illegally violated executive privilege when he disclosed his meetings with the president without authorization.
“No one denies that there was a privilege that existed between the president of the United States and James Comey, and James Comey, willfully and without the consent of the White House or the president, released information that was covered by that privilege,” Sekulow said.
“That’s illegal!” he declared.
Sekulow compared executive privilege to attorney-client privilege, saying that he, unlike Comey, respected the right of the president to maintain the confidentiality of his meetings.
Trump’s lawyer accused Comey of leaking sensitive information in order to secure a book deal.
