Trump Legal Aide Explains the Law in Crash Course to CNN Host
"I'm not waiving...anything. Absent what? A court order. And there's going to be no court order here."— Cuomo Prime Time (@CuomoPrimeTime) March 26, 2019

Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s lawyers, appeared Monday on Cuomo’s crosstalk-fest, where he addressed whether the written answers ought to be released.
Both Cuomo and Sekulow, it’s worth noting, are attorneys. After examining the exchange, you’ll probably have a good idea which one you’d prefer as legal representation.
Cuomo began the dialogue on the issue by asking why he shouldn’t be able to look at the president’s answers to the special counsel.
“Well, number one, you don’t have a right to see the president’s answers,” Sekulow responded.
Later, Cuomo pressed Sekulow over whether the president was justified to consider himself exonerated when describing the summary of the Mueller report.
Sekulow aptly noted that the prosecutor isn't supposed to exonerate him, but investigate alleged charges – in this case, Mueller came up empty-handed.
