Secret Service Denies Lawyer’s Claims About Trump Jr. Meeting
They’re not shielding him on this. Jay Sekulow, one of President Donald Trump’s personal lawyers, suggested yesterday that the Secret Service would have vetted attendees at a controversial campaign meeting between Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, a Russian lawyer, a Russian-American lobbyist and at least two others. But the Secret Service has responded that Trump Jr. wasn’t under their protection in June 2016, and therefore they wouldn’t have screened the meeting’s guests, eliminating that line of defense. Sekulow maintains that President Trump was unaware of the meeting.
