Attorney Jay Sekulow has turned his daily radio show into a courtroom of sorts, spending much of the past three weeks defending President Donald Trump against the myriad Russia probes, Politico reports.

Sekulow, part of Trump's personal legal team, has used the platform of "Jay Sekulow Live" to blast the investigations into Trump on 14 of the past 19 shows, Politico reports.

Sekulow, who says he has 1.5 million listeners, cites the efforts of the "deep state" who are out to get Trump, Politico reports.  

Experts wonder if Sekulow risks too much putting his Supreme Court credentials on the line in the effort to weave a public relations defense for the president, especially when it involves drifting into conspiracy theories.   

"Whenever you’re representing the president, obviously the line between politics and the law is a blurry one,” Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz told Politico. “There’s both a tactical line and an ethical one. He seems to be walking it.”

"He is making a big mistake as a credible pundit and even more as an attorney if he is ignoring facts and using innuendo and rhetoric as a surrogate for facts," Lanny Davis told Politico.

But Sekulow dismissed those notions.

"I know what does and doesn’t cross the line, and what you can and cannot do," Sekulow told Politico.
