Is Donald Trump Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice?

Messalina Adamo | 20 Giugno, 2017, 21:50

Pardoning himself, a move of contested legality that even Richard Nixon balked at? "There is no investigation", he added. Trump said previously that a memo from Rosenstein recommending the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's termination didn't matter. To make it even more hard, their client's public statements often threaten to undercut their work.

Through his campaign, Trump asserted the official jobless rate is phony because it leaves out millions who stopped looking for work. "Good luck trying to represent him". King said on NBC the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over".

Few attorneys have ever handled the investigation of a president.

An attorney for Jared Kushner says she advised the president's son-in-law to review his legal team after her former law partner was appointed as special counsel. Comey has said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". "And I believe that it will".

Basically, it seems like the entire reasoning behind saying Trump isn't under investigation is that Trump hasn't been told by anybody that he is.

Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, sent out spokespeople and surrogates with a far-fetched cover story to explain the dismissal, and then told NBCs Lester Holt that the real reason for the firing was Comeys pursuit of the Russian Federation investigation.

Cuomo and Sekulow next got into the weeds about the conflict between the White House's contention that Trump fired Comey on the attorney general's recommendation, and the president's own remarks that he was going to fire Comey anyway. He maintained that the president's actions won't prevent any of the investigations from proceeding, and that getting to the bottom of what happened would benefit all involved, including Trump.

There is a stigma attached to being an investigative subject.


Prosecutors will often answer then to avoid misleading the target.

Throughout the weekend, as these stories broke and developed, his focus - on this most public platform - has been the federal probe he now regularly dismisses as a "witch hunt". Both have been criticized by Trump and high-profile supporters of the president.

Trump has decided that "this is a political fight and he's going to fight it", a White House official told CNN's Jeff Zeleny.

A member of President Donald Trump's outside legal team is defending Trump's use of social media. "That's the constitutional threshold question here".

TRUMP: "You see the unemployment rate is at a very, very low level".

I've tried to look at this in the most charitable way possible. I don't think it serves him well.

Spokesmen for the committee and for Mueller declined to comment. Ledgett wrote a memo, according to the source, documenting a conversation in which the president allegedly urged Rogers to help get the FBI to lift the cloud of the Russian Federation investigation.

Kasowitz heads the group despite his lack of deep experience in Washington or in criminal defense. To register your answer to that question, scroll down and take the poll below on this page. Many people who do not appreciate how politicized the legal system has become will conclude that if you are under investigation, you must have done something wrong.
