Trump Lawyer Sends Mixed Messages About Russia Probe, Mueller, Tweets

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 06:50

Jay Sekulow, one of the personal lawyers Trump has hired, made the rounds of Sunday talk shows insisting that the president wasn't being investigated, despite a tweet to the contrary from Trump last week.

President Trump recently sent a tweet seemingly aimed at the Deputy AG, saying he is being investigated by the man who told him to fire the FBI Director.

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

On CNN, Sekulow said it was a response to an article in the Washington Post alleging Trump was under investigation for obstruction of justice.

Sen. Marco Rubio says it's best for the country to let the FBI's investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election take its course, and the Florida Republican tells CNN's "State of the Union" that's what he'd advise President Donald Trump.

Rasmussen said Friday its daily presidential tracking poll that 50% of likely USA voters approve of Trump's job performance, while the other 50% disapprove.

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

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

"Witch hunt' is how Trump characterizes the probe into Russia's election interference and possible ties to his campaign associates".

Cohen said the first official communication that a target is under investigation typically comes when prosecutors begin requesting documents and other evidence.


Mr. Trump told reporters in a Rose Garden ceremony he would be "100 percent" willing to testify under oath, and Sekulow told CBS News' John Dickerson that "the president was very clear" about testifying and has said "if he was asked to do it he would".

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

Trump adviser Newt Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week" that the tweet Friday "didn't help him".

If there is an obstruction case against the President, one of the chief claims would be that Rosenstein's memo was a ruse orchestrated to shift attention away from the real reason for the Comey firing: the president's opposition to the FBI's investigation of whether Trump campaign aides colluded with the Russians to influence the presidential election campaign.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions during his appearance last week before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Angus King (I-Maine).

"I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth", Sekulow complained.

On "Fox News Sunday", however, Sekulow appeared to be less clear on his talking points.

Trump's statements on Twitter are a sign of his frustration with the Russian Federation allegations, said former Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich, on ABC's "This Week".
