    Jay Sekulow - Lawyer and spokesperson

    Jay Sekulow was retained on the Trump legal team. He's been appearing as a Trump spokesperson for weeks now.

    Today Sekulow revealed that Trump's legal team has not discussed pardons with Trump. If this is true, that's kind of strange, isn't it? Because Trump has been merrily tweeting about the legalities of pardons. Where would Trump's legal knowledge of such have come from?

    Does Trump have another source for his legal advice?

    Trump and his people continue with the shooting themselves in the feet.

    "In November 2005, Legal Times published an article which alleged that Sekulow "through the ACLJ and a string of interconnected nonprofit and for-profit entities, has built a financial empire that generates millions of dollars a year and supports a lavish lifestyle—complete with multiple homes, chauffeur-driven cars, and a private jet that he once used to ferry Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia." In the article, former donors and supporters claimed that Sekulow engaged in a pattern of self-dealing to finance his "high-flying lifestyle." According to a ranking by the American Institute of Philanthropy, a charity watchdog group, Sekulow was the 13th highest paid executive of a charitable organization in the United States.[14]

    On June 27, 2017, The Washington Post reported that "Jay Sekulow's family has been paid millions from charities they control".[15]

    On June 27 and 28, 2017, The Guardian reported, that documents obtained by them confirmed later that "millions in donations" were steered to his family members,[16] that Sekulow "approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60m to Sekulow, his family and their businesses",[16] and that attorney generals in New York and North Carolina opened investigations of Jay Sekulow’s group Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (CASE) for possibly using pressure tactics in telemarketer calls to raise money which was allegedly misdirected to Sekulow and his family.[17]"


    Sheesh! I guess this does not surprise me. But couldn't a lawyer with a bit of a less controversial background have been chosen?
