Donald Trump Attorney Says President Not Under Investigation

In spite of tweet, lawyer says Trump not under investigation
Jared Kushner Is Now Getting Legal Advice From A Lawyer Who Specializes In Corruption

20 June, 2017

Sekulow sidestepped Cuomo's charge, returning to his claim that the president's reasons for firing Comey can not be investigated given that the Federal Bureau of Investigation director serves at the pleasure of the president.

According to the White House, Mueller interviewed with Trump to replace Comey after Trump fired him.

Trump appears willing to test the bounds of convention and his own powers against a legal and political establishment that he believes is conspiring against him.

Ultimately, Sekulow conceded there is "no duty" for the investigators to notify the White House if Trump is being investigated "in the sense of an obligation to tell".

Jordan Libowitz, spokesman for the government accountability and transparency advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) told us the memos have likely come under the purview of an ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 electionby Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

"I do not have a specific answer to that", Spicer said, when asked when the public might learn more about possible tapes.

But Jay Sekulow, part of Trump's legal team, said the president was writing about reports of an investigation, not an actual probe.

Stay on topic - This helps keep the thread focused on the discussion at hand. You know Mueller is looking at this.

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.

When asked when the Trump administration would release a statement about the recordings, Spicer stated, "So it's possible that we have an answer to that by the end of this week". Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. Mueller operates with day-to-day independence of Rosenstein, but Rosenstein still oversees how the investigation is funded.

"I want to be very clear about this, the president is not and has not been under investigation", Sekulow said and repeated throughout the day. He said a Friday tweet from Mr Trump was specifically directed at a story in "The Washington Post" about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.

Any confirmation that Mueller has expanded the investigation to consider whether the President obstructed justice with the Comey firing would carry no guarantee of a guilty finding.

And not unlike others who advise Trump on personal matters, Sekulow regularly appears on Fox News, as well as hosts a syndicated daily radio talk show. As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the US intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy.

Trump last Friday said on Twitter that "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

"Look, you're asking me to pick up the phone on an investigation we don't even know exists", Sekulow said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders last week said Trump had "no intention" of firing Mueller, although "the president has the right to".

On the same day, in Trump's hometown NY, a "Julius Ceaser production opened at an outdoor theatre in Central Park where Ceasar is played by a blonde in a suit and red tie, complete with a stabbing thrown in which sent the President's son Eric Trump into a sulk on Twitter".
