Trump not under investigation in Russia probe

Trump not under investigation in Russia probe

Sekulow was referring to a report in the Post this week that said Special Counsel Robert Mueller s investigation of Russian interference in November s presidential election was now also trying to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

Trump's tweet was posted more than a day after a Washington Post story reported that "Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly", confirmed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, appointed to look into allegations that members of the Trump administration colluded with Russian Federation to interfere with the election, was investigating whether or not Trump had sought to obstruct justice.

Sekulow also said that Trump's tweet that led people to believe he was under investigation was in response to a Washington Post story in which unnamed sources said the president was being investigated.

Sekulow went on argue that to say he claimed Trump is under investigation is "unfair", adding, "I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth".

In Twitter comments Sunday, Trump said, "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

Brooks for the win
Hot enough to burn back Matsuyama's charge and Harman's relentlessness. "I just couldn't stand the fact that I'd only won once". I think Tiger [Woods] had the best winning percentage of all time at 30 per cent, and you're lucky to even sniff close to 10.

He said, however, that Sekulow's comments could mean the White House was taking the position that no investigation exists until Mueller's team officially confirms it, disregarding media reports based on anonymous sourcing.

The Washington Post reported that Donald Trump is furious at Jeff Sessions for his recusal and the ramping up of the Russian Federation investigation that followed, and CNN reported that the two had some heated exchanges.

But Sekulow said repeatedly Sunday that "the president has not been and is not under investigation". "But the president, as James Comey said in his testimony and as we know as of today, the president has not been and is not under investigation". The White House has used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, but that Trump action may now be part of the probe. Marco Rubio, (R- Fla.), who said he discussed the probe with Trump on Friday.

The lawyer also suggested Twitter s character limit may be partly to blame.

A USA official who is familiar with the rough outlines of the probe and who spoke on condition of anonymity told Reuters on Thursday that Mueller was also examining whether Trump or others tried to interfere with the investigation.

On another question - Trump's suggestion that he may have tapes of conversations with Comey - Sekulow told CBS' Face The Nation, "I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead".

Sekulow said Trump would address the issue of the tapes - whose very existence is unclear - in the "week ahead".

Attorney Jay Sekulow is stressing that "the president has not been and is not under investigation".

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 ME, an independent who caucuses with Democrats.

It's not a great defense, and every morning talk show host poked holes in it, but Chris Wallace of Fox News seemed to do the best job. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over". But a department official said no one asked for the statement and Rosenstein acted on his own.
