Trump attorney says president not under investigation

Officials who worked for President Donald Trump's transition team have been directed to preserve all records that might be relevant to the investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, according to a copy of the memo obtained by CNN.
Trump's tweets following the report appeared to confirm the investigation, but his lawyer said it only appeared that way because of the character limit on Twitter.
"The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post", he said, referring to a recent story about special counsel Robert Mueller allegedly looking into whether Trump fired Comey last month in an attempt to obstruct an investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the U.S. election.
Sekulow made four TV appearances on Sunday to clarify the situation.
"He takes the action that [the Attorney General's office] recommended and now he's being investigated by the Department of Justice", Sekulow complained.
On Thursday night, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein released a weird statement: "Americans should exercise caution before accepting as true any stories attributed to anonymous 'officials, ' particularly when they do not identify the country - let alone the branch or agency of government - with which the alleged sources supposedly are affiliated", wrote Rosenstein, who was put in charge of the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation after Attorney General Jeff Sessions was forced to recuse himself. The president fired back over Twitter and at a news conference, claiming that some of the things Comey said weren't true.
"No one has notified us that he is" under investigation, Sekulow said. Sessions' recusal came a day after the Washington Post reported that he failed to disclose meetings he had with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak during Trump's campaign.
Cohen said the first official communication that a target is under investigation typically comes when prosecutors begin requesting documents and other evidence.
Trump's personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, also has retained an attorney to represent him.
Mueller had no choice but to add obstruction of justice to the list of potential issues his office would investigate.
Earlier this month, Rosenstein told The Associated Press that "if anything that I did winds up being relevant to his investigation then, as Director Mueller and I discussed, if there's a need from me to recuse, I will".
Comey made the existence of this investigation public in a March hearing before the House intelligence committee.
Schiff said Trump, his legal team and his supporters were trying to discredit the special counsel and his investigation.
Multiple committees in the Senate and House of Representatives are investigating various aspects of Russian election meddling. "Period", Sekulow said, using similar phrasing for emphasis as he did on "Meet the Press".
