Jay Sekulow Squashes Trump Attending Senate Trial

(C-SPAN)

By    |   Wednesday, 22 January 2020 08:32 PM EST

Despite an invitation extended to President Donald Trump to appear at his Senate impeachment trial, his attorney Jay Sekulow quickly rejected that as a possibility.

"His counsel might recommend against that," Sekulow told ABC News with a slight laugh before being unequivocally serious. 

"That's not the way it works. I mean, no, presidents don't do that."

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., tweeted an invitation to Trump on Wednesday:

"I heard @realDonaldTrump would like to attend the impeachment trial. Mr. President, would love to have you as my guest during this partisan charade."

"Wouldn't that be great? Wouldn't that be beautiful?" Trump told reporters at Davos' World Economic Forum on Wednesday. "I'd sort of love [to] sit right in the front row and stare at their corrupt faces. I'd love to do it.

"I don't know. Don't keep talking, because you may convince me to do it."

Trump did admit he would face an objection from his legal team.

"I think they might have a problem," he said.
