Trump lawyer slams Mark Warner over Russia texts

Source: Politico




Following President Donald Trump's lead, his lawyer Jay Sekulow lit into Warner for trying to communicate with the author of a controversial dossier— even as other top Republicans defended the Democratic senator.

A lawyer for President Donald Trump criticized Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee Friday, over leaked text messages that show Warner attempted to contact the author of a 2016 dossier alleging illicit ties between Trump and the Kremlin.

The comments by Jay Sekulow, a personal attorney to Trump, marked the latest stage in an ongoing conservative assault on congressional and law enforcement officials investigating possible Kremlin influence over Trump’s presidential campaign.

They followed a Thursday Fox News report revealing Warner’s texts with Washington lawyer Adam Waldman, who has ties to Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent who produced the controversial Trump-Russia dossier. Waldman also represents one of Russia’s top oligarchs, Oleg Deripaska, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"Why would the majority ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee be doing this?" Sekulow said on his daily radio show Friday. He implied that the messages revealed bias on Warner’s part that should give potential committee witnesses pause.

2. Already debunked, dumbass

Washington Examiner, yesterday:

“Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, defended the top Democrat on the committee, Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., after a report was published detailing communications he had with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch who said he could put Warner in touch with Christopher Steele, the former British spy who wrote the controversial “Trump dossier."

“Sen.Warner fully disclosed this to the committee four months ago.Has had zero impact on our work,” Rubio tweeted Thursday night.”


TRY TO KEEP UP SEKULOW

6. Debunked, yes....

...but Sekulow is already ahead of this!

Rubio, Burr and basically EVERYONE on the Intel committees are ALL IN ON IT.

The COVER-UP, I mean!

LOL

"Who's watching the watchers? Well, WE are Jay...."

They're REALLY winding their audience up over this, and the ultimate prize, of course is a SECOND SPECIAL PROSECUTOR to "sort this whole mess out"!
