Trump's Lawyer Brings Even More Ties To Administrations Russian Connections
Jay Sekulow is charged with advising the President while there is an investigation into possible collusion with members from his 2016 campaign and the Russian government.
The frequent commentator on Fox News and the Christian Broadcasting Network, he is also the head of Christian legal group American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).
The ACLJ, which has branches around the world, has a group called the Slavic Center for Law and Justice (SCLJ) in Moscow.
Tax filings show the ACLJ provided more than $1.5 million in funding to its Russia affiliate from 2011 to 2015, the most recent years with available data, according to the Daily Beast.
SCLJ co-chair Anatoly Pchelintsev told Voice of America in 2012 ‘homosexual propaganda’ exists in ”both direct and hidden forms,’ and legislation to bar it would be good, as the Human Rights Campaign has said.
He also praised the passage of a regional law banning the so-called propaganda.
Sekulow also once said legalizing homosexuality in the US would have terrible consequences.
Sekulow started his career as a lawyer for Pat Robertson and also for Jerry Falwell.
He is a radicalized Christian terrorist with a lifetime of legal opposition to LGBT equality.
He said in 2003: ‘By providing constitutional protection to same-sex sodomy, the Supreme Court strikes a damaging blow for the traditional family that will only intensify the legal battle to protect marriage and the traditional family.’
