Jay Sekulow's radio show is covering Jay Sekulow's impeachment lawyering - 2020-01-31
President Donald Trump prefers to get his legal representation from TV lawyers. All of his personal attorneys—Rudy Giuliani, Alan Dershowitz, Joseph diGenova and his wife, Victoria Toensing—have been regular talking heads on Fox News and in conservative media. But none of them can compete with what attorney Jay Sekulow offers Trump: his own show. And for the past two weeks, Jay Sekulow Live! has been covering Jay Sekulow—live!—as he defends the president on the Senate floor, with special guest Jay Sekulow, proving to be an underappreciated megaphone for Trump's case in the media.
As chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, a nonprofit founded by televangelist Pat Robertson in 1990 as the religious-right counterweight to the American Civil Liberties Union, Sekulow is a legal warrior who fights for the pre-born and battles the IRS, gays, and liberals. He is also a Christian media star whose daily radio show, Jay Sekulow Live!, reportedly reaches an audience of 1.5 million and also airs on several Christian TV networks.
Sekulow is no slouch in the legal department. He's argued 12 cases in front of the Supreme Court, many on behalf of anti-abortion groups. And now, as many of Trump's other lawyers have fallen by the wayside after disputes with their client, Sekulow has ended up front and center during the president's Senate impeachment trial, arguing passionately that the trial is about a policy dispute and the Democrats' dislike for Trump and not about high crimes and misdemeanors.
