      'Fox News anchor Chris Wallace grilled an attorney for President Donald Trump over the Russia investigation and the president's seeming acknowledgement that he was under investigation for potential obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

      'In a heated interview on "Fox News Sunday," Trump attorney Jay Sekulow insisted — as he did on the other Sunday political talk shows — that the president was not under criminal investigation, despite reporting from The Washington Post and the president's own tweet that suggested he was a target of the investigation.

      'The interview became lively when Sekulow seemed to contradict himself, suggesting that Trump was under investigation after firing Comey on the recommendations of the attorney general and deputy attorney general.

      '"He takes the action that they also, by the way, recommended. And now he's being investigated by the Department of Justice," Sekulow said. "So he's being investigated for taking the action the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency that recommended the determination."

      '"You've now said that he's being investigated," Wallace said.

      '"No, Chris. Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand: We have not received nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the United States," Sekulow replied.

      '"Sir, you've just said two times that he's being investigated," Wallace said.

      '"I just gave you the legal theory of how the constitution works," Sekulow said. "If in fact it's correct that the president is being investigated, he's being investigated for taking an action that an agency told him to take. That is protected under the constitution."'

          I just watched the other interview on Facebook. I don't think people are understanding what Sekulo is saying. (Which isn't good for an attorney who argues before the Supreme Court.)

          Let me try by paraphrasing Trumps tweet.

          My paraphrase: "So.....the Washington Post, sighting anonymous sources says: I am under investigation by the Justice Dept. for doing what the Justice Dept, recommended I do which was to fire Comey?????? That's ridiculous, and proves the Washington Post is fake news."


          Is that easier to understand?

              I've never understood how Chris Wallace ended up at FOX because he actually does call out a fair amount of right-wing BS. He's kind of a unicorn over there.

              Jay Sekulo, along with others trying to twist the narrative so that Stepford base can keep voting for hacks and con men, is well practiced at twisting the reality. It's refreshing when someone in his own camp calls him on his BS.
