Trump lawyer says President isn't under investigation, despite tweets

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:00

In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m., Trump wrote: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

But Sekulow now says Trump was simply acknowledging the Washington Post report, which was pegged to five anonymous sources - but he was not confirming it.

Mueller enjoys bipartisan support among lawmakers, who believe his reputation as FBI director properly equips him to lead the investigation into Russia's attempts to meddle in the United States election and potential ties between Trump campaign staff and the Kremlin.

When Wallace noted that Sekulow had just admitted Trump was under investigation, Sekulow accused the host of trying to "re-phrase" his words - prompting Wallace to say "the tape will speak for itself".

"This is the first time the president's overall approval rating has hit the 50% mark since late April", the site states. He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there. The tweet in question was the last of four tweets Trump sent out about the investigation.

Jay Sekulow, one of the attorneys the president has retained to represent him in the investigation, told John Dickerson on "Face the Nation" that the president is not under investigation.


Both Coats and Rogers declined before the Senate intelligence committee earlier this month to answer questions about their conversations with Trump, but both said they had never felt urged by Trump to intervene in the Russian Federation probes. The White House used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire Comey, but Trump's firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director may now be part of the probe.

Trump has denied making these comments, which Comey said he documented in contemporaneous memos.

He was apparently referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo to denounce Comey and subsequently appointed Mueller (pictured below) to continue the probe.

Sekulow even asserted that Trump is not under investigation at all, despite reports and tweets from days ago that signified he is being probed for possible obstruction of justice.

Comey made the existence of this investigation public in a March hearing before the House intelligence committee.

"There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation", Sekulow said.
