Trump lawyer: US president not under investigation in Russia probe

19 Junio 2017, 12:48 | Crisanna Felipe

The source said investigators have sought information from Richard Ledgett, who recently retired as deputy NSA director and, the source said, had written a memo documenting an attempt from Trump urging Rogers to tamp down on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

A member of President Donald Trump's outside legal team says the president isn't under federal investigation.

Trump insists his campaign had nothing to do with Russian efforts to undermine credibility in the US election.

"He's not being investigated", Sekulow exclaimed, adding that he wanted to be "crystal clear" that they are "not aware of any investigation".

Sekulow mentioned former FBI Director James Comey's testimony earlier this month before the Senate Intelligence Committee that he had told Trump on at least three occasions that the president was not personally a subject of the probe into Russian Federation election meddling and the Trump campaign.

"He's not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation", Sekulow said on NBC.

"Now my sources are telling me he's begun some preliminary planning", Thomas said. It was 141 characters - there's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know.

Todd continued to push Sekulow, asking before the interview closed why Trump seemed obsessed with the investigation even though he insisted he was innocent. He said Trump had learned the effectiveness of social media as a communications tool during the campaign. At that time, defence lawyers often will ask for their client's status.

Stephanopoulos, a veteran of the Clinton White House, pointed out that Kenneth Starr, the special counsel who investigated that White House, had called Mueller's crew a "fantastic team" comprised of 'complete professionals'.

In an interview with MSNBC host Lester Holt last month, Trump said he had already decided he would fire Comey before hearing any recommendations from Justice Department officials. But legal analysts say few criminal investigations begin with an identified target. "It's all about him". He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there.

Gingrich has repeatedly defended Trump and attacked those critical of the president. "I don't think that tweet helped him". Comey was referring to the FBI's investigation that he had been overseeing.

Sekulow said that Trump would address the issue of the tapes - whose very existence have been the source of much speculation - in the "week ahead".

"They want to lay the foundation to discredit whatever Bob Mueller comes up with". Schiff spoke on ABC's "This Week " and King spoke on NBC.

He sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is conducting its own probe into Russian election meddling.
