Trump lawyer: President not under investigation in Russian Federation probe
20 Giugno, 2017, 00:39
The conservative lawyer, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, is assisting Trump attorney Marc Kasowitz as MuellerinvestigatesRussian interference in the 2016 elections and the potential obstruction of justice by the president in the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. He also took a swipe at acting attorney general Rod Rosenstein - who, incidentally, hired the special prosecutor, wrote Yahoo News. Rumors have run rampant about such an investigation after James Comey was sacked from his post very suddenly, leading to dramatic series of events which included Comey's testimony. "He had been thinking about that as well".
"He s not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation. there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period". They are essentially engaging in a scorched earth litigation strategy that is beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor", Schiff said on ABC.Multiple committees in the Senate and House of Representatives are investigating various aspects of Russian election meddling.The Senate intelligence committee is in the early stages of its probe and is looking at whether anyone involved in the campaign shared information with the Russians, said Senator Angus King of Maine, an independent who caucuses with Democrats."I'd say we're 20 percent into it, just to throw a number at it", King said on NBC's "Meet the Press."Lawmakers from both parties are anxious that Russian meddling in USA elections could continue, King said."The real problem here is the Russians aren't going away".
The lawyer retorted that Wallace placed words in his mouth when he was crystal clear Trump is not and has not been under investigation. "Look, I'm a lawyer". "I think you're reading more into the tweet than what's there". The statement comes even though Trump himself has suggested that he is.
Sekulow, a conservative activist and radio talk-show host, earlier this month joined Trump's legal team, which is led by Marc Kasowitz. That may need to be extended to including "If your lawyer is explaining, you're really losing".
Sekulow says the president has a social media platform that can reach 107 million people and "I don't tell him what to write or not write".
Meanwhile, Sekulow said Mueller does have a "sterling reputation in Washington D.C.", and if there are conflicts with people he's named to his staff, that will be addressed. "I don't think that tweet helped him", Gingrich said.
One of Donald Trump s lawyers insisted Sunday that the president was not under criminal investigation as part of the sweeping probe into Russian Federation s alleged meddling in American elections, despite the U.S. leader s tweets angrily calling the whole saga a "distraction". "Witch Hunt." Rosenstein appointed Mueller to be the special counsel in the investigation, although Mueller is actually conducting it.
America is edging ever closer to a new long, national nightmare, given President Donald Trump's explosive response to signs that special counselRobert Mueller is approaching the epicenter of White House power.
