Trump not included in Russia probe: lawyer


Mr Trump's aides have reportedly asked him to stay off Twitter and focus on other aspects of his job.

The attorney, Jay Sekulow, appeared on several Sunday news programs to counter the impression that Trump has acknowledged he's become a target of the expanding Russian Federation probe.

Sekulow said that Trump has not been notified of any investigation and that the latest information they have is from Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

"Well, you don't know that he isn't under investigation now, do you?"

"Well, again, ultimately, at the end of the day, he has a right to his opinion on these issues", said Rubio, one of Trump's opponents in the race for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination. (See CNN clip here.) Which makes no sense, especially since Trump often uses consecutive tweets to get his point across.

SEKULOW: That response, that response on social media was in response to the Washington Post piece.

She added: "As far as the people that were injured, it's an absolute shame". It's what Jenner says next that is really appalling. She said, " Liberals can't even shoot straight".


Speculation surrounding a potential Mueller firing ramped up last week, after a friend of the president's said that Trump was "weighing" whether to terminate the special counsel.

Gorelick is a partner at the WilmerHale law firm. "Because the special counsel, under the special counsel regulations, reports still to the Department of Justice, not an independent counsel", Sekulow said.

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

Senate and House committees are also investigating Trump.

Himes says interviews are still being scheduled and documents being reviewed. Rubio spoke on NBC, CNN and CBS.

He insisted Trump's tweet was not a real statement, explaining that the message was in response to a Washington Post report suggesting the president was under investigation. Kushner has been represented on business matters and other issues by Jamie Gorelick.

I'm sure he's innocent. "I think our good communication has led to good results". "At this moment, he wants to leave". The 32-year-old wants to leave Real and has already informed his decision to his current employers.


Russia's Foreign Ministry said in a statement that Trump is "returning us to the forgotten rhetoric of the Cold War".

It's unclear where that process stands. The Washington Post first reported the story.

Trump, who has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, has frequently lashed out about the allegations, which have overshadowed his administration's efforts to overhaul the healthcare system, cut taxes and boost jobs.

Wittes, who penned an op-ed in the Times after Trump fired Comey in May, told BuzzFeed that reading the newspaper's reporting on the dinner put helped him understand conversations he had with Comey.

A member of the president's outside legal team says Donald Trump is not under federal investigation.

"Face The Nation" host John Dickerson referenced Trump's Friday tweet where he claimed he was under investigation and called it a "witch hunt". "The president is not and has not been under investigation".

They 73-year-old, who's been married to Cosby since 1964, added that "historically, people have challenged injustices". Ms Huth's lawyer, Gloria Allred, said the scheduling of a second deposition was on hold because of the criminal trial.


"It was a striking show of solidarity between two men who previous year had been fierce presidential rivals - who had upbraided each other in deeply personal terms during one of the ugliest stretches of the Republican primary", the Washington Post reported on Friday. He maintained that the president's actions won't prevent any of the investigations from proceeding, and that getting to the bottom of what happened would benefit all involved, including President Trump.
