And then in January of this year, the president’s legal team, including you, sent a memo to Robert Mueller saying this: “You have received all the notes, communications and testimony indicating that the president did dictate a short but accurate response to the New York Times article on behalf of his son.”
So why did you deny President Trump’s involvement? When did you learn that the denial wasn’t true?
SEKULOW: Well, let me tell you two things on that one. Number one, as you know, George, I was in the case at that point, what, a couple of weeks? And there was a lot of information that was gathering and as my colleague Rudy Giuliani said, I had — I had bad information at that time and made a mistake in my statement. I’ve talked about that before. That happens when you have cases like this.
As far as when did we correct it, the important part is the information that we’ve shared with the Office of Special Counsel — I’m not going to get into the details — but we were very clear as to the situation involving that trip and the — and the statements that were made to the New York Times. So I think it’s very important to point out that in a situation like this, you have — over time, facts develop.
