In spite of tweet, lawyer says Trump not under investigation


Efe news reported, Sekulow as saying that the President has not been and is not under investigation for obstruction of justice, he added, referring to press reports saying that special counsel Robert Mueller is also investigating Trump.

The latest about Donald Trump's rocky presidency is redolent of a David Baldacci or James Patterson page-turner; only this is a work of non-fiction.

Trump appointed Mueller as special counsel after sacking Comey who had been heading the Russian Federation probe into Moscow's alleged interference in the U.S. presidential election.

President Donald Trump´s personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential race, a statement that appeared to contradict a comment Trump himself made on Twitter last week. "Witch Hunt." The message apparently referred to Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general whose role leading the federal investigation has become increasingly complicated.

This week could bring an end to the ongoing mystery of whether tapes of President Trump's White House conversations with former FBI Director James B. Comey actually exist - or it could lead to the White House being hit with a congressional subpoena.

Trump and his personal attorney are trying to "take down" Mueller before he finishes his investigation, Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on House Intelligence Committee, said on ABC.

Trump's attorney repeated the same statements on NBC's "Meet The Press".

Cant once said in an interview that he was surprised that so many fans remembered him as a legend of children's television. He leaves behind his wife Cherry Britton, and their three children, daughter Rose, and twins Christabel and Peter.

During Comey's June 8 testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee, where he testified that Trump pressed him to drop the FBI investigation into former White House aide Michael Flynn, Comey said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes".

"He s not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation. there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period". "The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post".

In a "normal" world and under "normal" conditions, a sitting president wouldn't dare fire the man who holds the key to his fate; that wouldn't be American.

But the sense of chaos around the White House is deepening.

In a statement, Gorelick says that after the appointment of the special counsel, she advised Kushner "to obtain the independent advice of a lawyer with appropriate experience as to whether he should continue with us". Trump fired Comey in early May. Well, why wouldn't he? The California congressman said that the president and his associates are engaged in a scorched earth litigation strategy that begins with discrediting Mueller. "Don't waste our time". "The rules of justice are very simple".

Remember, we're not dealing with a "normal" president this time around. The act will send ripples of shockwaves throughout Capitol Hill and lawmakers would likely face a constitutional crisis - one not seen since Nixon's Watergate.
