Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow: We Will Fight Mueller Subpoena in the Supreme Court (VIDEO)
An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow told George Stephanopoulos on Sunday that they will fight any subpoena from Robert Mueller.
Sekulow said a Mueller subpoena would spark a legal battle and they will take the fight all the way up to the Supreme Court.
Stephanopoulos asked Sekulow what he would do if Mueller were to subpoena President Trump.
“You have a fight under the Constitution because it really becomes an Article II question,” Sekulow told Stephanopoulos.
“…If you get a subpoena, you file what’s called a motion to quash, that will be argued at the district court then it would go to the court of appeals, then it would go to the Supreme Court of the United States,” Sekulow said.
“A subpoena for live testimony has never been tested in court as to a president of the United States,” Sekulow continued, saying Trump’s legal team is prepared to fight it in court.

The Deep State and Democrats know President Trump and his legal team will take Mueller to the Supreme Court which is why they are doing everything they can to stall Judge Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the SCOTUS.
