Worst Quote of the Week – January 25, 2020

“Lawyer lawsuits?  We’re talking about the impeachment of a president of the United States, duly elected, and the managers are complaining about lawyer lawsuits?  The Constitution allows lawyer lawsuits.  It’s disrespecting the Constitution of the United States to even say that in this chamber.  Lawyer lawsuits.”

– Jay Sekulow, personal attorney to Donald Trump, apparently misunderstanding the term FOIA (Freedom of Information Act)

Sekulow flew into a rage because he misheard a common legal phrase.  Representative Val Demings, one of the impeachment managers, had said, “The president’s lawyers may suggest that the House should have sought – that this House should have sought these materials in court, or awaited further lawsuits under the Freedom of Information Act, a.k.a. FOIA lawsuits.”  She repeated term “FOIA lawsuits,” which must have struck Sekulow as unfamiliar.

As we often say here in Texas, ‘Bless his heart.’  Or in more common vernacular, ‘Dumb ass!’
