President Trump’s personal lawyer Jay Sekulow floated that Donald Trump Jr’s meeting with Russians in Trump Tower last June couldn’t have been so bad, because the Secret Service let them in the door.

‘I wonder why the Secret Service, if this was nefarious, why the Secret Service allowed these people in,’ Sekulow said Sunday on ABC’s This Week. ‘The president has Secret Service protection at that point, and that raised a question with me.’

The Secret Service is enlisted to protect a presidential candidate, not chaperone or babysit a presidential campaign. And as Sekulow noted, Trump himself, wasn’t privy to details about the meeting until recently.

‘Well, let me say this, you know, I don’t represent Donald Trump Jr, I represent the president and what I can tell you is the president was not aware of that meeting, did not attend that meeting,’ Sekulow told ABC News’ Jonathan Karl at the top of the interview.

Sekulow also stood by what Donald Trump Jr told Sean Hannity on Tuesday night – that no other information on the meeting would come out.

‘This is everything. This is everything,’ Donald Trump Jr said.

Of course it wasn’t, with NBC News and then the Associated Press revealing on Friday that another individual, a Russian-American lobbyist with a counterintelligence Russian military past, was also in the room, among several previously undisclosed individuals.

Sekulow brushed past that during Sunday’s interview.
