Trump Lawyer Jordan Sekulow Caught Lying as He Tries to Smear Sally Yates With His Bogus ‘Fact Check’

Trump lawyer Jordan Sekulow tried to smear former acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she told the Democratic National Convention on Aug.18 that she was fired by President Donald Trump on Jan. 30, 2017, after she refused to enact his “shameful and unlawful Muslim travel ban.

Sekulow — who has a history of making false statements — tweeted that Yates lied because the Supreme Court found the Muslim travel ban (predominantly Muslim countries) was “constitutional.”

In reality, five courts blocked the first Muslim ban (Yates opposed) on Jan. 29, one day before Yates was fired by Trump for not enforcing the blocked ban on Jan. 30, notes the ACLU of Washington.

Trump’s first Muslim ban (Yates opposed) and second Muslim ban both failed in the courts.

Trump’s third Muslim ban (which didn’t even exist when Yates was acting Attorney General in 2017) was upheld by the Supreme Court on June 26, 2018.
