President Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Jay Sekulow alleged Friday on the Fox News Channel that the newly released whistleblower complaint was written by a law firm, not an individual.
The whistleblower complaint, released to the public Thursday, accused Trump of asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced Tuesday that a formal impeachment inquiry against the president has begun.
Sekulow told the “Fox & Friends” co-hosts Friday morning that the complaint reads as though a law firm wrote it, not an individual. He brings up reasons to back up this allegation, which include looking at “the phraseology” and “the footnotes.”
“So, when you start with a witness saying, Steve and Brian, ‘I have no knowledge of the events I’m depicting here, and I’m basing this on conversations I had with colleagues of mine, and I think they are trustworthy,’” Sekulow said. “Well, do you know if they heard it correctly?”
“Well, I don’t know because I don’t have firsthand knowledge. And do you think the whistleblower drafted that complaint? I mean realistically?”
