Trump's lawyer denies he's being investigated

Jamie Gorelick, Kushner's current lawyer, works at WilmerHale - the same firm Mueller worked at before Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. "He's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take, by the agency who recommended the terminations". And Trump's own tweet seemed to concede the point last week. And in blitzing four Sunday shows, he mounted the argument that the special counsel is not investigating Trump. The issue is whether Trump criminally obstructed justice.

In a statement, Jamie Gorelick said she told Kushner to get "independent advice of a lawyer" on whether to "continue with us" after Robert Mueller was tapped to lead an FBI investigation into possible ties between Trump's presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

On 16 June 2017, the Federal Bureau of Investigation notified us that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for memos that fired FBI Director James Comey wrote after one-on-one meetings with President Donald Trump had been denied.

"I don't know what the facts will show or what the special counsel will conclude, but Kasowitz, Sekulow & Dowd is not the dream team", he tweeted after the Fox News exchange.

A few days after the "bombshell" Washington Post story claimed that Mueller was looking into whether Trump tried to thwart the FBI's Russia-election-meddling investigation, ABC News reported that there isn't such an investigation.

Sekulow also got in some political spadework that offers clues as to the White House's legal strategy ahead.

Sekulow appeared on NBC's Meet the Press, CBS News' Face the Nation, CNN's State of the Union and Fox News Sunday. There's no limitation on doing that.


Turnout could exceed 250,000 votes, an impressive total for a special election, and its already the most expensive House race in US history. That's very close to the final popular vote margin, but other polls conducted within the final two weeks before Election Day were also quite accurate on average. In other words, the well has run dry for those who believe that President Trump can be taken down based on phony charges of collusion with Russian Federation.

The obstruction-of-justice investigation of the president began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter. He's done this on several occasions. Since the memos will undoubtedly play an important part of Mueller's investigation, it's not surprising that they don't want to turn them over. Sekulow has fought a total of 12 cases in the Supreme Court, in which most he defends similar values to the president.

"One thing we've learned I think from the testimony of multiple people now is the President's pretty fired up about this, OK?" The Cuban government has traditionally steered those tour groups to state-run business, meaning the majority of American travelers to Cuba will probably no longer be able to patronize private restaurants, bed-and-breakfasts and taxi drivers. As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the US intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy. "Regulations way down, jobs and enthusiasm way up!"

But White House officials worry that Trump may fire Rosenstein and Mueller, a move that aides are actively against as it could be unconstitutional.

Given the severity of the president's crisis, Trump needs good attorneys who'll give him sound advice.

"Politically, the people who don't like him still won't like him, and the people who support him will still support him".
