James Risen overheard Jay Sekulow: They've lost control of the narrative, and they're frightened. [View all]

James Risen overheard Jay Sekulow, the President’s personal lawyer who probably will have to be Rudy’s cleanup brigade, in a green room. They’ve lost control of the narrative, and they’re frightened.

AT ABOUT 7:30 A.M. Friday morning, I arrived at Liveshots DC, a small television studio on Capitol Hill used by a number of different news programs. I had come to record an appearance on Democracy Now! with Amy Goodman, to talk about the Trump-Ukraine scandal.

After sitting down in one of two small adjoining rooms that served as the “green room” for guests, I looked up and noticed that there was one person waiting to appear on television in the next room. It was Jay Sekulow, who served as one of Donald Trump’s lawyers during the Trump-Russia investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, and continues to serve as one of Trump’s personal lawyers. I also noticed that there were two men standing just outside the green room, who appeared to be security guards there to protect Sekulow. (They were wearing lapel pins and dressed in dark suits, but I don’t know whether they were private security or government employees.)

Sekulow was standing on the other side of the open door connecting his room to mine. Not long after I noticed him, he got on his cell phone. I don’t know who he was talking to, but he got right to the point in his phone conversation.

“I’m going on CBS at 8,” he said. “I’m going to see the president at 10. We’ve got to get on top of this thing. I think we can, but we have got to get on top of this.”

A moment or two later, Sekulow added: “He’s going all around town, stirring things up. It’s not helpful."
