Conservative Talk Radio Star Is Trump’s Newest Lawyer
June 21, 2017
The newest member of President Donald Trump’s legal team, Jay Sekulow, is a fixture on conservative talk radio who made a name for himself arguing high-profile First Amendment cases on behalf of religious organizations. He has appeared before the Supreme Court to argue a dozen cases. His daily radio talk show, Jay Sekulow Live!, is broadcast on more than 850 radio stations, satellite radio, and on his website.
