In an interview on "Meet The Press," Jay Sekulow repeatedly denied that Trump had become a subject of the FBI's investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, even when host Chuck Todd pointed out that Trump himself in a tweet last week seemed to confirm that he was a target of the investigation. "Then why did he say he was?" Todd asked. "I mean, was this just mistweeted? Are we not to take him at his word?" Sekulow insisted that Todd was "reading more to the tweet than what's there." Todd was one of many cable-news personalities who clashed with Trump's personal attorney over his insistence that The Washington Post's report was inaccurate. Sekulow made similar claims on CNN, Fox News, and CBS News.
