    He acts as if his client wasn’t the one who claimed exoneration. Why didn’t he advise him of this back then 🤔

      @Jon Z you people are delusional.

      It’s impossible to obstruct from something you never took part in in the first place… No collusion no interference in the investigation per MUELLER. Wanting to fire the hack investigating you based on a bogus dossier paid for by Hillary Clinton isnt obstruction. The president can fire special council at his pleasure. Doesnt mean he wont be impeached for it, but he never fired mueller either 🤣.

      You cannot obstruct an unobstructed investigation that finds no collusion…🤗

      But I wouldn’t expect someone of your superior idiocy to even begin to comprehend these simple things🤣

      like i wrote, these are some of the dumbest people on YT

      @bUH sNUH ah yes, I should refrain from engaging further!

      josh simpson – “Second, many obstruction cases involve the attempted or actual cover-up of an underlying crime. Personal criminal conduct can furnish strong evidence that the individual had an improper obstructive purpose, see, e.g., United States v. Willoughby, 860 F.2d 15, 24 (2d Cir. 1988), or that he contemplated an effect on an official proceeding , see, e.g., United States v. Binday, 804 F.3d 558, 591 (2d Cir . 2015). But proof of such a crime is not an element of an obstruction offense. See United States v. Greer, 872 F.3d 790, 798 (6th Cir . 2017) (stating , in applying the obstruction sentencing guideline, that “obstruction of a criminal investigation is punishable even if the prosecution is ultimately unsuccessful or even if the investigation ultimately reveals no underlying crime”). Obstruction of justice can be motivated by a desire to protect non-criminal personal interests, to protect against investigations where underlying criminal liability falls into a gray area, or to avoid personal embarrassment. The injury to the integrity of the justice system is the same regardless of whether a person committed an underlying wrong.” Mueller Report

      @J M M They are probably the same person, faking a conversation. Making it look like someone agrees with him.

  2. I must be from an inverted universe.

  3. If he’s going to argue that exoneration is a ridiculous standard and not something Mueller could do, is he going to stop claiming that Mueller did provide exoneration? Just seems like a requirement for basic consistency…

  4. Remember when Giuliani was somehow allowed to do TV interviews? I guess his privileges have been revoked and they’re sending in this clown instead.

    • Yea Giuliani was on fox but it wasn’t an interview, more the ramblings of someone on speed mixed with meth – he was all over the place. No wonder he thinks Spanky Bonespurs is innocent and sane, coz he’s neither

    • For sure.🤣🤡🤡🤡

    • @quietman356 123455 That’s because smart people are AWOKE and watch REAL NEWS with FACTS. But then again, you wouldn’t know about that.🙄😴

      @quietman356 123455 this isn’t fox news ///pay attention here!!!

    Sekulow just gave you, Legal mumbo-jumbo double-speak, garble.

    • Wake up.
      Not a witch Hunt, scam or a fairy.tale,but a search for truth.

    • Sask Sun seekers | July 25, 2019 at 11:31 AM | Reply

      @John Beckman yet another trump parrot that has no clue on what he is squawking about…if you indeed knew the law you certainly would not have posted what you did…again carry on posting stuff you think makes you look smart…the reality is that you are proving what most of us already know how truly ignorant you are…keep projecting your lack of intelligence it’s quite humorous ….idiots lol…right..good job making yourself look smart…FAIL!!! Boy matching wits with you trump parrots is like shooting an unarmed man!!!

    • @Alexander The Great I know he talks like a todler and that matters how? His lawyers said the same/did not correct him. Ignorance is no excuse. Furthermore, exonerate does not equate “not guilty”, so no that’s not going to fly.
      Are you a judge? If not, explain to me why part 2 of the Mueller report is meaningless please. Be very specific.

    • Alexander The Great | July 25, 2019 at 12:25 PM | Reply

      @sfamerken12 do you believe in innocent until proven guilty?

  6. Talk Blocked | July 24, 2019 at 10:59 PM | Reply

    It’s audience-abuse to subject your viewers to this Sekulow’s pitiful attempts to mislead America.

  7. Tracey Edwards | July 24, 2019 at 11:05 PM | Reply

    You & I both know he’s guilty!

    • You people are children. You wanna hear what you wanna hear. Truth and logic mean nothing. If you’re LEFT you listen to MSNBC or CNN etc etc, If you are RIGHT you listen to FOX. If you just want the truth, you’re out of luck coz there is NO money in truth.


    • @bianca devino Willfully ignorant is no way to go through life. Hundreds of contacts with Russians that they should have reported, but instead denied ever happened = lied about, then it changed to it did happen but they didn’t get anything from it and eventually ended up (from Trump’s own mouth) that yeah, they did it and they would do it again EVEN THOUGH IT IS CRIME TO DO SO. So much for Trump following our laws and Constitution.

  8. Splitting hairs….. spin spin spin!
    Sekulow really earns his money!

    • he needs that money for the botox and black hair dye

    • I wonder what the $ amount for this weasel (or any of Trumps cronies) was to contribute to the downfall of the nation?
      A million? 100 million? Even if it’s for $100 they are garbage human beings.

  9. i’m surprised sekulow came back on ari’s show after the last time ari mugged him.

      @Lucifer Augustus wow, i’m amazed on how bots type this days. cudos to the programmer! I replied so you could explain in english what you just said, and you typed a even more garbled response.. lets see what the bot responds this time! Also the cat was being malicious in his day to day dealings with the agent, so we had to put him down in august.

    • Lucifer Augustus | July 25, 2019 at 4:35 AM | Reply

      @Federico Barrio Linares One (1,) first letters of sentences are always capitalized. Also, it’s “kudos,” not “cudos” [sic;] plus ellipses (…) require three puncta, not two. An ellipsis is used when one is prevented from expressing oneself, not because one refuses to express themselves. Funnily enough, your English sucks, which is why you have a superiority/inferiority complex about it. Finally, Roman [dates] such as [August] are to be capitalized unless enclosed by square-ended brackets as seen here. Meaning the word, itself, is negated from the page.

      @Lucifer Augustus You really are intoxicated by the exuberance of your own pointless verbosity

    • kidcopernicus | July 25, 2019 at 10:50 AM | Reply

      @Lucifer Augustus It’s really more your delivery. The information is interesting but your pedantic demeanor is tiring.

    • Federico Barrio Linares | July 25, 2019 at 11:08 AM | Reply

      @Lucifer Augustus I can’t believe I’m having a conversation with a bot, I had the impression it was an Internet myth, but look at this. Funny thing is, it replies stuff more interesting than most republicans.
      Also, while Teamviewer is a great tool for remote control, there is many other options in the realm of cats with hats.

    Omg go to fox if you want to spue this nonsense

    • Soulfyah Management | July 25, 2019 at 3:03 AM | Reply

      Why not go to real alt news. Serious investigative researchers. QAnon

    • Well, at least you admit to extreme bias. If you hate Trump, hang out here, if you love Trump, go to fox. Those who are grown up enough to actually care about the real truth…..sorry, that’s so rare, there is no money in the truth.

  12. What’s the over/under on the # of lies told by obviously guilty traitor trump’s obviously lying lawyer in a 6 minute clip?

  13. When the only thing keeping you from going to jail is your the President, That’s a good sign you shouldn’t be President anymore

  14. Steven Horwich | July 24, 2019 at 11:49 PM | Reply

    Lord, please spare us Sekulow’s ridiculous nonsense.

  15. Josh Sanders | July 24, 2019 at 11:55 PM | Reply

    Evidence is what exonerates or implicates, not a person or office.

  16. Am I missing something. Why am I hearing a total different thing than this lawyer

  17. Sad, but true. | July 25, 2019 at 12:23 AM | Reply

    I don’t think that it was a good day for the president…how could that be possible?

    • Alexander The Great | July 25, 2019 at 2:16 AM | Reply

      @Phatkillz Mueller testified today. Left wing media even said it was disastrous for the Democrats.

    • Wally Tverstol | July 25, 2019 at 9:06 AM | Reply

      in his own mind. trump’s interps are not that perceptive. he is trying to appeal to the fox news public viewers and his base

  18. “The Department of Justice concluded there was no obstruction” ? No, Trump’s corrupt functionary, Bill Barr, did as he was hired to do… lie

  19. Sekolow accuses Mueller of not understanding the issues involved. I call BS!

  20. Name Withheld | July 25, 2019 at 3:51 AM | Reply

    Even if Trump was in an *orange suit* Jay Sekulow would say he’s technically not in jail he is in appeals
