U.S. president not under investigation for obstruction: His attorney

Trump had earlier fired Flynn in February after just 24 days on the job after learning he had lied to Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was "increasingly concerned" that Trump will fire both Mueller and Rosenstein. "I believe this is the thing that could happen for the president". Nearly everybody else does.

Incredulous, Todd pressed Rubio for seeming to give the president a pass on the issue. "Now they're talking about going and looking at financial files, if you believe the leak".

The special counsel is looking for evidence to support claims that Trump's associates illegally colluded with Moscow during the president's victorious run for the White House past year. Sekulow asserted that "the president could not be investigated, or certainly could not be found liable for engaging in an activity he clearly had power to do under the constitution".

However in an interview with Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday" Sekulow admitted that he doesn't actually know for certain if Trump is under investigation or not because he can't read the mind of special counsel Robert Mueller.

There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated". Questioning veracity of the Washington Post story, Sekulow asserted that the President could not be under investigation for doing something that the Department of Justice asked him to do.

True to form, Trump's surrogates went into smear mode, using baseless talking points to attack Mueller's credibility.

"Mueller is absolutely not compromised by his professional relationship with Comey", Painter said, according to the Hill. "That's in the best interest of the president".

Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow does the rounds on the Sunday morning talk shows.

'One of them worked for the Clinton Foundation, ' Gingrich also pointed out to Stephanopoulos. Cohen has received a subpoena from one of the congressional committees looking into the Russian Federation issue. Now he has these two memorandums from his attorney general and his deputy attorney general.

The lawyer, Jay Sekulow, contended the tweet was not a confirmation of the investigation, but instead a response to a report in The Washington Post.

"So, he's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take, by the agency who recommended the termination". Here is what you just said: The president made the decision before - let's assume for the sake of argument there was all kinds of decisions being discussed, but this crystalized that decision. "You're damned if you do and damned if you don't, in regards to that". 'I am very dubious about the team Mueller is putting together'. Angus King (I-Maine). Already, Trump's administration has been launching airstrikes at about 5 times the pace Obama did, per the CFR.

"The fact that [Trump] hasn't received a letter doesn't mean he's not the subject of an investigation", he said.
