Jay Sekulow, an attorney for President Donald Trump, said on the Fox News show Hannity Monday night that the second whistleblower is irrelevant to impeachment because the transcript of the phone call in question has already been released.
“They are now talking about a second whistleblower and my statement on that is, so what?” Sekulow said. “We’ve already released the transcript. So, does — is it really relevant what some other person who may or may not have heard the conversation thought about it?”
“They couldn’t get Russia, they couldn’t get obstruction, then it was a quid pro quo with Ukraine, and then there was a transcript that showed no quid pro quo, then it was a cover-up, except there was no cover-up because the transcript was released,” Sekulow continued.
“So, now that we have a second whistle-blower — again, the transcript out, it speaks for itself,” he went on. “It is not an impeachable offense, period.”
