According to his website, Sekulow is widely regarded as one of the foremost free speech and religious liberties litigators in the United States, having argued 12 times before the U.S. Supreme Court in some of the most groundbreaking First Amendment cases of the past quarter century.

Sekulow's considered a renowned constitutional attorney, an international expert on religious liberty, and an acclaimed and distinguished broadcaster who is a passionate advocate for protecting religious and constitutional freedoms with an impressive track record of success.

Sekulow jumped into action over the weekend, defending the president who tweeted he is under investigation.

"Let me be clear here," says Sekulow, the president of the American Center for Law and Justice. "The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction."

When asked specifically about Trump's tweets, Sekulow says, "That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources."

He continues: "There's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know. The president's response was as it related to the Washington Post report. He cannot in a Twitter statement include all of that in there ... That's it. Simple explanation."

The ACLJ typically takes on cases involving the persecuted Church, national security, religious freedom and traditional marriage attacks.
