Lawyer says Trump not under investigation

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 05:11

"Let me be clear here", said Jay Sekulow, a member of the president's legal team, on NBC's "Meet The Press". That tweet, Chris, was in response to The Washington Post story that alleged that five unnamed sources, anonymous sources, leaked to The Washington Post that the president was, in fact, under investigation.

After host Chuck Todd inquired why the president didn't embrace Robert Mueller's investigation "if he's innocent", an attorney for the president, Jay Sekulow, began playing defense.

Sekulow, however, said Trump's tweet was in response to a "fake" media report with no "documented sources".

One of Donald Trump's personal attorneys categorically denied that the President is under investigation for obstruction of justice, despite Twitter posts in which Trump apparently acknowledges it.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel following Comey's ouster in early May.

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace grilled an attorney for President Donald Trump over the Russian Federation investigation and the president's seeming acknowledgement that he was under investigation for potential obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

"I wish it were that simple", Tapper continued, adding that if the president says he's being investigated, people are taking him at face value. "The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction".

Trump has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller. Sen.


"I don't believe it's going to happen", said Rubio on CNN's "State of the Union". As far as I can see, the real question isn't factual but rather constitutional.

"With his testimony, Comey's case against President Trump collapsed like a house of cards", Sekulow argued.

Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate intelligence committee that Trump pressured him on the Russian Federation investigation and asked him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn.

"With all due respect, the president said "I am being investigated" in a tweet, and people take his word on that", Tapper said. It also sent a letter to Comey asking for any notes or memos.

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed.

One of President Trump's lawyers insisted on Sunday that a tweet in which he wrote of "being investigated" did not confirm that he was, in fact, under investigation, as senators of both parties suggested the probe will run for many more months whether Trump is unhappy about it or not.

Trump referred to the "witch hunt" again in a series of tweets Sunday, saying in one missive that "the MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

"But it's nearly like it's who he has been his whole life", Gingrich added. Angus King of ME, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats.
