The president wrote on Twitter Friday: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

"He, from every pronouncement we have seen, feels very strongly that he did nothing wrong, and he wants people to say that, because he feels very strongly about it". I really, truly believe that.

"And he's expressing himself in that way", Rubio said on "Meet the Press".

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. "So no, the president's not under investigation, has not been", he said.

Both Coats and Rogers declined before the Senate intelligence committee earlier this month to answer questions about their conversations with Trump, but both said they had never felt urged by Trump to intervene in the Russian Federation probes.

Sekulow insisted that Trump fired Comey over his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state - for which she was not charged and pointed out that Trump told Holt that firing Comey would likely lengthen the investigation.

About the president's tweet, he repeated that it was not a confirmation of an investigation: "The context of the tweet, I just gave you the legal theory, Chris, of how the Constitution works. And now he's being investigated by the Department of Justice", Sekulow said.

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped conversations.

Sekulow, the chief counsel for the conservative American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ), argued in a Fox News op-ed last Friday that the case against Trump had disintegrated with Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee this month. The committee also sent a letter to Comey asking for any notes or memos.

President Donald Trump is beginning his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed.

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 any media reports based on anonymous sourcing. "There's a lot of information yet to go".
