Trump's new lawyer is facing his own investigation: Authorities in two states examining Jay Sekulow's Christian nonprofit - 2017-06-29
Jay Sekulow, the lawyer who repeatedly insisted that President Donald Trump was not personally under investigation, may soon find himself under investigation after it was reported that his Christian nonprofit allegedly steered tens of millions of dollars to himself, family members and their businesses.
The Guardian reported this week that Eric Schneiderman, the attorney general of New York, said his office would begin examining "the operations of Jay Sekulow's group Christian Advocates Serving Evangelism (Case)."
The attorney general of North Carolina is also investigating allegations Sekulow steered $60 million in charitable donations to his family members. "The reports I've read are troubling. My office is looking into this matter," Josh Stein, the attorney general of North Carolina said in a statement. Amy Spitalnick, a spokeswoman for Schneiderman added in an emailed statement to the Guardian, "We're reviewing their filings."
