Trump not under investigation, says lawyer

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace grilled an attorney for President Donald Trump over the Russian Federation investigation and the president's seeming acknowledgement that he was under investigation for potential obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

Rosenstein is the only official who could fire Mueller, because Attorney General Jeff Sessions previously recused himself from the probe into Russian interference in last year's presidential campaign and whether anyone close to Trump colluded with the Russians.

There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated". "Witch Hunt", had nothing to do with any official investigation into President Trump's activities.

AP wrote that the deputy attorney general's role in leading the federal investigation has become "increasingly complicated". Robert Mueller, who served as FBI director before Comey, later took over the investigation.

Rubio took a different tack, saying on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday that the president should "be welcoming this investigation".

"Let me be clear here", said the Trump's legal team member.

The attorney explained that the tweet the president sent in which he said he was under investigation was in response to a Washington Times story that said he was.

Lieu isn't the only House Democrat warning Trump of consequences for firing Mueller and Rosenstein.

Trump also bragged to visiting Russian diplomats that getting rid of Comey relieved him of "great pressure because of Russia".

Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.

Google also created a system to allow advertisers to exclude specific sites and channels in YouTube and Google's display network. And we'll keep working on the problem until we get the balance right. "We are committed to playing our part".

Sekulow: "I can't imagine a scenario where the president would not be aware of it".

Trump's mouth is the reason why there might not be a lawyer in the world who is capable of stopping the President from self-destructing and taking his entire administration down.

"The president said last week he would release the tapes of, if there were tapes of, his conversation this week".

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed. "Witch Hunt", Trump said in a tweet.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said. Testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee last Tuesday, Sessions said that while "it appears" that Russian officials sought to influence the USA electoral process, his knowledge of the matter was confined to "what I read in the paper". Witch Hunt." In a spasm of anger - or is it panic? - he insisted, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians", nobody has been able to show any proof.

The Post story cited five people briefed on the interview requests, who said that the current director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, head of the National Security Agency, Mike Rogers, and Rogers's recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators.

"This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses".

They went a few more rounds before Tapper wondered, "is that not frustrating for you as an attorney to have a client that is sharing information with the world that's not accurate?"

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.
