Sekulow Schools Williams After Host Couldn’t Grasp How Barr Determined “No Collusion”
The Daily Caller highlighted an epic exchange between Trump attorney Jay Sekulow and disgraced MSNBC anchor Brian Williams yesterday after the host expressed his surprise that Attorney General William Barr could “get off” with the conclusion that the Trump campaign did not collude with Russia.
“My first question, I’m afraid, is going to verge on plain English,” Williams said. “Where did the Attorney General get off with that characterization this morning, including four mentions that there was no collusion? What document was he reading, compared to the one we’re left with?”
Sekulow responded, citing the second page of the Mueller report.
“Well, page two of the document says, ‘The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election of interference activities.’ So it’s right from the document itself.”
Williams moved on, “Have you read part one?” he asked.
“I have read part one and part two,” Sekulow responded.
“Do you find good news in here for the president and the administration?”
“The investigation—page 181—the investigation did not establish the Contacts described in volume one—that’s the Russian contacts—amounted to an agreement to commit any violation of federal criminal law, including foreign influence and campaign finance laws,” Sekulow replied. “Yes, I think it’s very good win.”
