Jay Sekulow Biography

He is part of Trump’s defense group for the Senate impeachment trial. Other lawyers include Ken Starr, Pat Philbin, Pat Cipollone.
Jay Sekulow Politics
On May 14, 2019, The Intelligence Committee announced, that it would investigate whether Jay “reviewed, shaped and edited” Michael Cohen’s false testimony to Congress. On May 20, 2019, The Washington Post reported, that Cohen testified in closed session before the Intelligence Committee that Jay ordered him to falsely testify that the Trump Tower Moscow discussions ended in January 2016.
Michael Cohen reported in testimony before Congress on February 27, 2019, that Jay and other members of Trump’s legal team made “several” changes to his false statement to the House Intelligence Committee, including a change to the “length of time that the Trump Tower project stayed and remained alive.” Jay argued about the testimony “Today’s testimony by Michael Cohen that attorneys for the president edited or changed his statement to Congress to alter the duration of the Trump Tower Moscow negotiations is completely false”.
The Washington Post reported on June 27, 2017, that “Jay’s family has been paid millions from charities they control”. The Guardian reported, on June 27 and 28, 2017 that documents obtained by them confirmed later that “millions in donations” were steered to his family members, that Jay “approved plans to push poor and jobless people to donate money to his Christian nonprofit, which since 2000 has steered more than $60m to Jay, his family and their businesses”, and that attorneys general in New York and North Carolina opened investigations of Jay’s group Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (CASE) for possibly using pressure tactics in telemarketer calls to raise money which was allegedly misdirected to Jay and his family.
During the Senate impeachment trial, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow made a bold claim. “Not a single witness,” he declared, “testified that the president himself said that there was any connection between any investigation and security assistance, a presidential meeting, or anything else.” While he talked, Trump’s legal team displayed a slide making a similar assertion: “NONE of the Democrats’ witnesses say President Trump linked investigations to security assistance or a meeting.”
And that’s true! Sort of. While Trump’s EU ambassador, Gordon Sondland, testified that there was indeed a quid pro quo—Ukraine’s president would get a meeting at the White House only after he announced investigations into Trump’s political foes—he acknowledged that Trump had not told him this directly.
