Is Donald Trump Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice?

20 June 2017, 11:07 | Terri Saunders

That's what palace informers are leaking this week - Trump is said to be "yelling at television sets in the White House over the Mueller probe reportage, fuming at the same man who advised him to fire Comey, annoyed that his big anti-Obama legislative agenda has been backburnered by the Russian Federation investigations and is troubled enough to have appointed yet another outside lawyer to douse the fires licking the main door of the White House".

"The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction", lawyer Jay Sekulow said on NBC's Meet the Press.

Meanwhile, despite growing concerns that the president may fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel running the Russian Federation probe, Sen. "Thank God I don't need you right now Jay Sekulow".

I want to be very clear about this, the president is not and has not been under investigation.

Rosenstein in a memorandum had made the case for the ouster of FBI Director James Comey. Comey was among those critics who cited Lynch's June 2016 tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton as a sign the Justice Department was not capable of an independent investigation into Hillary Clinton. The message apparently referred to Rosenstein, whose role leading the federal investigation has become increasingly complicated. President Trump requested he write up the letter to support the decision to fire Mr. Comey.

On Monday, though, senior adviser Kellyanne Conway advised the public to not pay attention to the words in the tweet, because even though Trump appeared to fully admit that's he's being investigated, Conway said, well, he's not.

Gorelick is a partner at the WilmerHale law firm. Both have been criticized by Trump and high-profile supporters of the president. Another key will be Mueller's assessment of Comey allegation that Trump tried to get him to stop the investigation of former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn.

His fans shouted back the lyrics to " Slow Hands " while holding their phones in the air to capture the performance. A Tribe Called Red won trophies for best video for 'R.E.D.' and best director for Kevan Funk.


"Witch hunt' is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia's election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates". That led to mass confusion for interviewers like Fox's Chris Wallace and CNN's Jake Tapper.

Comey also told the Senate that he intentionally leaked his contemporaneous memos detailing his conversations with Trump in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.

Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on House Intelligence Committee, said last Sunday that Trump and his personal attorney are trying to "take down" Mueller before he finishes his investigation. It showed up again on the President's Twitter page when he said that the "distraction of the witch hunt" would not divert him from his Make America Great mission.

The panel sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday.

Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.

"The President is attacking Bob Mueller, and therefore Newt Gingrich is attacking Bob Mueller", Schiff said. Angus King, an independent from ME, said "we're 20 percent into" the collusion aspect of the investigation. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over". He said it could be done "maybe by the end of the year". "There's a lot of information yet to go".
