In spite of tweet, lawyer says Trump not under investigation

Barak Cohen, a former Justice Department lawyer and now a defense attorney specializing in white-collar crime and investigations, said there was no requirement that the special counsel notify Trump he was under investigation, so the lack of such notice meant nothing.

Trump usually spends weekends at his resort properties in Florida or New Jersey, but for the first time as president, he went to Camp David in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains.

Prominent criminal lawyers have been contacted to possibly represent Jared Kushner in the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, The New York Times reports.

A simple tweet from President Donald Trump is keeping the Russian Federation investigation in the headlines. POTUS's legal team made clear to news reporters that the president is not under investigation for obstruction of justice.

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

"He said that if, in light of all of this, the removal of James Comey would lengthen the amount of time that this investigation would take - he thought it was in the best interest of the American people", Sekulow said.

And on the question of whether President Trump taped his conversations with Comey - as Trump hinted he did - Sekulow said: "I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead".

A case in point is the firing of Comey and Trump's subsequent admission that he had Russian Federation on his mind when he dismissed the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, an admission that could provide a rationale for an obstruction of justice probe.

"The President does utilize Twitter".


Asked if the president might not know of an investigation, Sekulow said: "I can't imagine a scenario where the president would not be aware of it". Marco Rubio said Sunday that he does not expect Trump to seek to fire them.

It all stems from the president's May 12 tweet: "James Comey better hope that there are no "tapes" of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!" It also sent a letter to Comey asking for any notes or memos.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said.

The House Oversight and Judiciary committees have issued similar requests. Angus King, an independent from ME, stressed that the probe will likely last for a long time. He added: "A lot of people have said, 'When do you think you'll be done?' Maybe the end of the year".

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.

President Trump continued to refer to what he feels is a "witch hunt" against him in another slew of new tweets Sunday morning, writing that it is a distraction from the rest of his priorities: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

The government-owned retreat for presidents since Franklin D. Roosevelt is more rustic than Trump's usual gilded surroundings.

A source familiar with the matter told CNN's Evan Perez that investigators for Mueller would speak with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.

"The president of the United States takes action after receiving a memorandum from his attorney general, a letter actually from his attorney general and memorandum from his deputy attorney general", Sekulow told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. "He's been a fighter his whole life", former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week".
