Mike Pompeo becomes Senior Counsel for Global Affairs at the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), a non-profit group group whose chief counsel is Trump impeachment attorney Jay Sekulow.
Sekulow and employee Colby May are both members of the Council for National Policy. Like CNP, the American Center for Law and Justice is a religion-based conservative group. It was founded in 1990 by former CNP president Pat Robertson as a right-wing platform to take on the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
The ACLJ came under scrutiny in January 2020 when reports surfaced that the non-profit was used to funnel $65 million to Sekulow, his companies, and his family over the span of 10 years.
Additionally, Sekulow is just one of six ACLJ lawyers who worked on Trump’s first impeachment defense team. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the ACLJ is not legally allowed to engage in partisan political activities.
