Trump slams Russian Federation 'witch hunt,' touts himself, agenda on Twitter


When Wallace noted that Sekulow had just admitted Trump was under investigation, Sekulow accused the host of trying to "re-phrase" his words - prompting Wallace to say "the tape will speak for itself".

"The President is not under investigation by the special counsel", Jay Sekulow said in an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press".

The Justice Department's special-counsel investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 US presidential election is now also reportedly examining whether President Donald Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

Trump defied conventional wisdom last month when he fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey after allegedly entreating Comey to back away from the FBI's Russian Federation probe. "Witch Hunt", Trump wrote on Twitter, referring to his May 9 dismissal of James Comey.

Robert Mueller III, the former FBI director now leading the investigation, is looking into whether the 45th president is guilty of a federal crime, The Washington Post reported Wednesday. Todd said. "If this investigation is going to find - and he knows he did nothing wrong, then he shouldn't be afraid of this investigation".

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped conversations. The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events. He sent out another Twitter post on Thursday saying: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

"That response on social media was in response to the Washington Post piece", Sekulow told CNN's Tapper.

Trump aides have urged him to stop meddling in the investigative process, but law enforcement and intelligence officials have recounted how the president has asked them to push back against the probe or to publicly exonerate him.

Sekulow said Trump "is not and has not been under investigation".

Days after Comey was abruptly ousted, Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Rosenstein was also the author of a letter in May to Trump criticizing the performance of FBI Director James Comey.

His memo criticizing Comey - issued amid the former FBI director's investigation into Russia's 2016 actions - has cast doubt over his objectivity in the eyes of many Democrats.

"I would give him the chance to see if he could do that because if there's nothing there, so you're not gonna find anything anyway", Carson said on Fox News Radio. "The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction".

Despite suggestions by a Trump friend in a television interview that the president was weighing dismissing Mueller as special counsel, the White House declared late Tuesday that there was no such plan.

Coats met behind closed doors for more than three hours Thursday with the Senate intelligence committee, which is conducting a separate investigation into Russian interference in the election.

Amid frenzied speculation that he was about to fire the special counsel or Rosenstein or both, a seemingly unconcerned Trump set out to celebrate the second anniversary of the launch of his incredible presidential run with a vow to "Make America Great Again".
