Donald Trump and his lawyer’s excuses for the meeting his son (Donald Trump Jr.) had with Russians just went from bad to worse. Now they want to throw the secret service under the bus. But the ‘Men In Black’ are not having it.
On Sunday Trump’s lawyer, Jay Sekulow told ABC’s ‘This Week’ that if meeting with the Russians was criminal than the Secret Service would have stepped up and stopped it.
If this was nefarious, why’d the Secret Service allow these people in? The president had Secret Service protection at that point. That raised a question with me.
What in the world? Really, nefarious? Who uses that word? I digress, It was so bad, the secret service actually responded! And those men are very private. In a statement made to Reuters on Sunday, Secret Service spokesman Mason Brayman said,
Donald Trump, Jr. was not a protectee of the USSS in June, 2016. Thus we would not have screened anyone he was meeting with at that time.
In other words, ‘keep our names out of your mouth’. According to their website, the secret service is authorized to protect immediate family members of the president, vice president, the president-elect, the vice president-elect, as well as other individuals in the presidential line of succession. And since in June Trump wasn’t the President, Trump wasn’t their problem.
Adjust your argument Sekulow, your desperation is showing. View video below,
