Sekulow: Trump should be above the law bc having to hire a lawyer is an undue burden.

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/05/justice-kagan-thumps-sekulows-immunity-claim-in-trump-tax-case-the-president-isnt-above-the-law/

Sekulow countered with the argument that hiring counsel to fight subpoenas “would raise a serious impact on the president’s Article II functions.” The attorney called on the court to “categorically” strike down the ability to subpoena the president.


Imagine being so holed up in your job that you don't even have the time to hire a lawyer!

5. Jay Sekulow and family another bunch of grifters

Jay Sekulow is up for the second Supreme Court case heard today regarding Donald Trump.

The Republican National Committee has paid more than $250,000 to Sekulow.
More than $65 million in charitable funds were paid to Sekulow, his wife, and his sons.


But Sekulow, 63, is registered as chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice, a non-profit Christian legal advocacy group...

Gary Sekulow, Jay’s 61-year-old brother, was paid a total of $985,947 in salary and benefits...

Adam Sekulow, Gary’s 31-year-old son, was paid $229,227 as the director of development at CASE and $65,052 as the director of major donors at ACLJ...

Records show millions more each year going to for-profit companies controlled by the family. In addition to the $5.8 million ACLJ paid to CLA Group in 2017, $1.4 million was paid to Regency Productions, a company owned by Jay Sekulow that receives his fees for appearing on the radio show “Jay Sekulow Live!” and his television show “ACLJ This Week with Jay Sekulow,” which airs on the same Christian network as Pat Robertson’s “The 700 Club.”

6. Sekulow is a piece of shit

Met him when I was in the cult assemblies of god.
When I hung out with that fraud Denny nissley.

He's more repulsive in person.

7. Translated: Trump won't pay his lawyers and they won't give him any more credit.
