President Trump's Lawyer: Not Aware of Any Investigation

President Trump's Lawyer: Not Aware of Any Investigation

Press secretary Sean Spicer denied it was a travel "ban"; Trump tweeted it was a ban. Should the President be under investigation for firing Comey, however, either now or in the future, the investigation that began focusing on Russian ties to the Trump campaign and November's election could result in a shakeup.

Jay Sekulow, a lawyer who is part of a team hired by Trump to deal with allegations of collusion by his campaign with Moscow, made the rounds on Sunday talk shows to cast doubt on media reports citing unnamed sources - and to add nuance to a straightforward claim Trump made on Friday that he was under investigation. On Fox, it got heated with the host, Wallace "I do not appreciate", Sekulow said, "you putting words in my mouth when I've been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation".

Sekulow, chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice, said the president was only referring to a news report.

"There is a fundamental threshold question there that the President's authority to terminate the Federal Bureau of Investigation director is based on the Constitution", Sekulow responded.

"Oh, you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer", Trump said.

Sekulow continued, saying that because the President had not been notified of any investigation, reports that he is the target of a probe must be false.

In the fourth inning alone, they tallied four doubles off Bundy, who had never allowed more than three doubles in an entire game. Manager Terry Francona said he is not exactly sure why this is happening but likes seeing the Indians playing better.

Mueller was tasked with overseeing the investigation in May.

Reynolds notes that all that's required to disqualify Justice Department conflict of interest rules is just the appearance of a conflict. "That means there should exist on some server somewhere in the White House, a very thorough record of the kind of phone calls that nay investigator of the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's ties to Russian Federation any obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of those ties, should be able to access", Perlstein said.

"To say, "Comey told him he's not under investigation, so he can't be" - that's illogical", Cuomo said.

Finally, we know that Muellers investigators are also looking for “any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, ” as the Post phrased it.

The Senate Intelligence Committee say it's only about 20 percent into its investigation.

"I think there's general agreement", Feinstein told CNN on Monday.

Lawyer says Trump not under investigation, despite president's tweet otherwise
Senator Angus K of ME said, "A lot of people have asked, when will we be done?" "I think the important thing is to get started. Were Trump to go through with it anyway, it would be the most politically self-destructive act of his young presidency.

A statement from Ms Gorelick said: 'After the appointment of our former partner Robert Mueller as special counsel, we advised Mr. Kushner to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us as his counsel'.

In testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday, Rosenstein pledged that Mueller would maintain his independence and said he would not follow orders to fire the special counsel unless he believes "those are lawful and appropriate orders".

A full-scale investigation has not yet been launched, although preliminary work is clearly being done, according to sources familiar with the process. Kushner has been discussing the matter with Abbe Lowell, a prominent trial lawyer.

An obstruction case against the president would require scrutiny of the drafting, intent, and background of Rosenstein's memo, which set forth the recommendation that Comey be terminated.

Asked about the possibility that an investigation has since developed and the president does not know, Sekulow said: "I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there's an investigation to the president of the United States".
