Donald Trump's lawyer, Jay Sekulow, mocked the whistleblower's report that President Donald Trump was abusing his office and trying to get the Ukrainian president to investigate his political rival – he said he didn't even write the detailed report.
The president's lawyer spoke Friday, one day after the bomb allegations were released. They contain a detailed set of allegations about the call from Trump-Ukraine – and also describe the allegations that Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani met with top Ukrainian officials to strengthen the president's demands.
& # 39; Just look at the phraseology! & # 39; Sekulow told Friday & # 39; Fox and Friends & # 39 ;. & # 39; The footnotes. This is not prepared by this person. This is written by a law firm and you know what? The American people see it as it is, & he mocked.
Sekulow pointed to the addition of the Latin expression among other things (among other things) as proof that the whistleblower had help.
The passage takes place where the whistleblower, identified by the New York Times as a male CIA officer who at some point was detailed for the White House.
After using the sentence, the whistleblower quoted & # 39; multiple & # 39; White House officials who had immediate knowledge of the call.
He further claimed that Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden's son Hunter, & # 39; help unmask allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US presidential election in Ukraine & # 39; and & # 39; and meet or speak with two people the President specifically mentioned as his personal envoys on these matters, Mr. Giuliani and Attorney General Barr, to whom the President has referred several times in succession. & # 39;
President Trump raged Thursday against the whistleblower and said his sources were spies, who called treason and execution
Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow said the complaint was written by a law firm, not by the whistleblower
All three allegations are supported by a transcript of the call that the White House released this week. Trump repeatedly encourages Zelensky to contact Giuliani, the former mayor of New York and attorney general Bob Barr.
The Times, in a controversial story providing identifying information about the whistleblower, also wrote that the author appeared for legal knowledge.
The report & # 39; suggested that he was an analyst through training and made clear that he was steeped in details of US foreign policy towards Europe, demonstrating a refined understanding of Ukrainian politics and at least some knowledge of the law & # 39 ;, the newspaper said.
The whistleblower claimed that Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate a company associated with Joe Biden's son Hunter, as evidenced by a transcript
House speaker Nancy Pelosi told MSNBC on Friday about & # 39; Morning Joe & # 39; and spoke about Barr: & # 39; He has become unfair. & # 39;
Pelosi also spoke about another whistleblower charge – that officials have moved the content of Trump's call with Zelensky to a secret server normally used for & # 39; secret actions & # 39; although not & # 39; sensitive to national security & # 39; to be.
When asked about the secret server, Pelosi said: & # 39; & # 39; As part of a cover-up. & # 39;
But she tried to keep the focus on what happened during the call, after she had been charged this week. & # 39; But I think we should keep the public focused on the fact that the President of the United States used taxpayers dollars to take out the leader of another country for his own political gain, & # 39; she said. & # 39; The rest is additional. & # 39;
Sekulow has ridiculed the claims about the server. & # 39; Think about that. The White House called a telephone call with the President of Ukraine. And by the way, it's such a secret and such a cover-up – here's the document, & # 39; Sekulow said, referring to the release of the call.
The director of the national intelligence service initially refused to hand over the whistleblower's report, citing the privilege generated by White House lawyers and the Ministry of Justice. Trump ordered it released after a major commotion.
