Trump's lawyer: Ignore his tweets, the President is not under investigation

20 June 2017, 09:57 | Patty Hardy

"You can't ask, 'What normally happens when the president attacks the Deputy Attorney General in an ongoing criminal investigation where the president is a subject?'" he said. The Washington Post says he is, and their evidence seems pretty strong.

Then, in a subsequent interview on "Fox News Sunday", Sekulow sowed further confusion by saying Trump was under investigation - then denied he said anything of the sort.

"The president is not under investigation by the special counsel", Sekulow said on NBC.

Last Friday, President Trump added to the confusion by responding to the Washington Post story in a tweet.

"No one has notified us that he is under investigation", Sekulow said.

"There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation". On Twitter, Trump dismissed as "phony" the idea his campaign colluded with any Russian effort to sway the 2016 US election. The White House used a memo he wrote to justify Mr Trump's decision to fire Mr Comey, but Mr Trump's firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director may now be part of the probe.

But the more frustrated that Trump gets, the more he often hurts himself politically.

However, Mr. Comey did say he took the President's "hope" comment as a "directive".

Fired FBI Director James Comey said under oath, during his much-anticipated Senate hearing earlier this month, that he believes he was sacked because of the Russian Federation investigation. "Mueller's going to do his job". A few of Trump's toadies and allies in the conservative media have tried to argue that Mueller is some sort of "deep state" hatchet man, but Trump would need better justification for firing the special counsel than a Newt Gingrich conspiracy theory. "They're essentially engaging in a scorched-earth litigation strategy that is beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor".

Still, Redskins owner Dan Snyder has stood his ground, arguing that the team name "represents honor, respect, and pride". It is expressing contradictory views.9 It is unashamedly endorsing a vast array of commercial products and services.


Kushner is in the spotlight over alleged discussions with Russia's ambassador in December, during which he reportedly discussed setting up a secret communication channel between the Trump administration and Moscow.

Trump's fledgling presidency has been battered by allegations-being dissected both by Congress and the FBI-that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favor, in possible collusion with the former real estate magnate's campaign team.

James Comey, who was sacked on May 9, told a Senate panel last week he believed the POTUS dismissed him to undermine the bureau's ongoing investigation. Robert Mueller, right, testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on June 19, 2013.

FILE - In this June 8, 2017, file photo, Marc Kasowitz personal attorney of President Donald Trump makes a statement at the National Press Club, following the congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey in Washington.

On ABC'S "This Week", Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Mueller has support on both sides of the aisle.

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped those conversations. Jason Greenblatt, Trump's global envoy, will arrive on Monday. "As I said, I think it will be good for the president, good for the country to have a full and credible investigation so no one can ever say you didn't look at this or you didn't look at that", Rubio continued.

And Senate intelligence committee member Sen.

Senator Angus K of ME said, "A lot of people have asked, when will we be done? This is a very complex matter involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents and lots of witnesses".
