Is Trump Being Investigated? No

Is Trump Being Investigated? No

President Donald Trump acknowledged yesterday he is under investigation in a probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential race and possible collusion by his campaign - and seemed to assail the Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry.

President Trump fired James Comey because the FBI director wouldn't publicly state that Trump wasn't under investigation.

The Post broke a huge story four days ago, claiming that President Trump was under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for obstructing justice.

On "Fox News Sunday", Sekulow said that he was certain the president was not under investigation because he had received no notification or other indication that he was.

Schiff said Trump, his legal team and his supporters were trying to discredit the special counsel and his investigation. And allies of former President Bill Clinton also raised concerns of political bias by Kenneth Starr, who led the Whitewater investigation that ultimately led to Clinton's impeachment.

Trump is under pressure to reveal whether he has any tape recordings of private conversations with Comey. His tweet about a "WITCH HUNT" conducted by "bad" people is just a Trumpian version of what appears to be the official White House line - that this is somehow a partisan attempt to delegitimize the Trump presidency.

Comey told a Senate panel last week he believed Trump fired him to undermine the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Russian Federation probe. But the president can always fire Rosenstein first.

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". "The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report". That habit is hurting him in Washington, where even if the president has the legal power to command and dismiss Federal Bureau of Investigation directors and deputy attorney generals, he can not do so without political repercussions.

Appearing on a series of morning news programs, attorney Jay Sekulow repeatedly stressed that "the president has not been and is not under investigation". Among other roles, she was an official in the Justice Department's Office of Legal Policy under George W. Bush.

On CNN's State of the Union, Mr Sekulow sought to account for any confusion over Mr Trump's apparently precise words by saying the president could not "in a tweet, include all that is there".

It comes a day after lawmakers questioned Justice Department officials about the probe and Mueller's independence.
