Jay Sekulow, personal lawyer to President Donald Trump, shared on CNN’s “New Day” that he would would not allow Trump’s written answers to special counsel Robert Mueller to be made public.
“I would fight very aggressively for that information to not to be released,” Sekulow stated. “You’d have to weigh a lot of factors there on how that affects other presidencies. So I think it’s not a simple ‘just waive your hand and here’ we release the document. That would be very inappropriate.”
While Sekulow did admit that ultimately the decision resides with Attorney General William Barr, he still said that he had, “some strong opinions about that.”
Mueller’s report has already cleared President Trump of any possible collusion, so the only reason for Democrats to seek his written answers is to try and find something else to ridicule him about.
