Trump lawyer defends his use of social media

Sean Hannity, on his show Friday evening, on the Fox News Channel, after stating that he believes the "deck is stacked" or so it appears to him, against President Trump in the FBI investigation, asked Newt Gingrich, a friend and supporter of Trump, whether Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, and Special Prosecutor Mueller, should step down from the investigation due to their connections to the dismissed FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump earlier last month.

Sekulow tried again to say that the president is not under investigation, but Wallace interrupted.

What has Trump's legal team said?

Since then, he's argued in front of the Supreme Court more than 10 times.

"That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources", Sekulow said in an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union". First, White House staffers spend 24 hours denying Trump was under investigation.

"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.

President Trump's lawyer Jay Sekulow says the president is not under criminal investigation.

America is edging ever closer to a new long, national nightmare, given President Donald Trump's explosive response to signs that special counsel Robert Mueller is approaching the epicenter of White House power.

Former US attorney Preet Bharara, whom Trump fired in March after Bharara refused to resign along with a raft of other Obama-era Justice Department attorneys, slammed Trump's choice to pick the attorney for his team.

CNN host Chris Cuomo interviewing President Donald Trump's attorney Jay Sekulow. Sekulow said Trump "thought it was in the best interest of the American people" to fire Comey. Constitutionally, the president does not need a reason to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, who - like every unelected subordinate official in the executive branch - serves at the president's pleasure.

Outside of this investigation, Sessions has been accused of several stances that are not considered morally correct, such as allegations of racism going back to the late 1980s, and supporting President Trump's travel ban preventing citizens of six Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. "You know it exists".

Kushner's contacts with Russians during the transition have been scrutinized as part of the widening probes into whether Trump's team coordinated with Moscow during the election. "If you were a target, if you were being investigated, you would be told really quickly into the investigation".

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally, said the president's tweet seemingly acknowledging that he's under investigation wasn't helpful. You know Mueller is looking at this. "I do not believe it is a sound position that if you recuse from a single case, you can't make a decision about the leadership of that agency".
