Trump's lawyer: Ignore his tweets, the President is not under investigation

Trump's lawyer: Ignore his tweets, the President is not under investigation

"The first four names are all people who gave to Democrats", Gingrich said.

Asked last week if he was open to investigating the White House on questions of obstruction of justice, Grassley did not rule it out.

President Trump's personal attorney insists the president is not a target of the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

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. Before Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, the Trump-appointed deputy attorney general, wrote a memorandum recommending that Comey be dismissed. Nice.” And then: “You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history — led by some very bad and conflicted people!”.

When India's Prime Minister Modi meets Trump on June 26, there will be just 4 legislative days left before Congress breaks for the July 4 recess.

"Sekulow says that when people study the 2016 presidential election, they'll look back at Trump's communications as the most successful utilization of social media platforms and communication in our lifetime". The president took action on that recommendation, now the president is being investigated by the Department of Justice.

The scorched-earth approach may have grave political consequences. To register your answer to that question, scroll down and take the poll below on this page.

While aides have advised Trump to stay off Twitter, the president continued to weigh in Sunday as he spent the weekend at Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat in Maryland. I don't think it serves him well.

And Senate intelligence committee member Sen.

"Brian, we're friends, and I'm not going to discuss legal advice I have given to my client, the president of the United States", Sekulow responded. "And he's expressing himself in that way".

Now, is there plenty of evidence, from Trump's private and public statements, that he dislikes the Russian Federation inquiry in general and considers it a politically-motivated sham?




The Washington Post story cited five officials who had been briefed on interview requests from special counsel Robert Mueller with three top intelligence officials to see if Trump had attempted to obstruct justice.

"Trump has a compulsion to counter-attack and is very pugnacious".

This is the whole story in a nutshell: Trump has not been notified that he's the target of an investigation.

There is a stigma attached to being an investigative subject.

"There's been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation", says Trump attorney Jay Sekulow. But only one of them can be right about their central point - whether the special counsel investigation has expanded to the president.

"It was 141 characters".

"Let me be clear: the President is not under investigation as James Comey stated in his testimony", Mr. Sekulow said on "Fox News Sunday".

Investigators have also sought information from recently retired NSA Deputy Richard Ledgett, according to the source.

Separately, Rubio said on NBC that while Trump is "pretty fired up" about the investigation, he doesn't think the president "has a problem with additional sanctions on Russia" that the Senate approved last Thursday.

Already, they've floated the idea that Mueller could be biased because some members of his investigative team have made campaign contributions to Democrats and because Mueller interviewed for the Federal Bureau of Investigation director's job after Trump fired Comey.
