Senate judiciary probe may review obstruction of justice

While Pence hasn't been implicated in any potential wrongdoing, he is tied to the Mueller investigation in two main ways.

Maybe not coincidentally, Trump has a deadline of the end of this week to turn over to the House Intel Committee all memos about, and any tapes of, conversations with Comey. The higher the pressure, the more defiant the President becomes - even if it puts him at odds with his legal team. "Regardless of the recommendation, I was going to fire Comey", he told NBC News in early May.

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking.

This apparent slap at Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, is at odds with Trump's own account of how James Comey was sacked.

However, what needs to be mentioned is that the "witch hunt" reference was not a one- off tweet. And Trump's own tweet seemed to concede the point last week.

The tweet sparked speculation that Trump may pull a nuclear option by firing Mueller and Rosenstein, a move senior aides have fervently advised against - given that it could provoke a constitutional crisis.

NBA Draft Trade Rumors: Kristaps Porzingis being moved by Knicks, Phil Jackson?
Trading him now would surely generate an even worse reaction from the Knicks fan base than when they drafted him two years ago. The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reports that team president Phil Jackson is taking calls on Kristaps Porzingis .

President Donald Trump has given his legal team a clear direction: Fight, fight, fight.

The scorched-earth approach may have grave political consequences.

If Mueller decides there is a case to answer for either the President or his aides in the issue of alleged collusion with Russian Federation or over a potential cover-up, the political uproar will be incalculable.

Back in the present, the President's mood is fueling the sense of crisis. Marco Rubio said Sunday that he does not expect Trump to seek to fire them.

"He, from every pronouncement we have seen, feels very strongly that he did nothing wrong, and he wants people to say that, because he feels very strongly about it", Rubio said. "And he's expressing himself in that way".

Sekulow says that Trump hasn't been notified of any investigation.

"I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" Meanwhile, it is no secret that there are both Senate and House committees that are investigating the President.

Jay Sekulow, a conservative attorney who is now a member of Trump's legal team, has emerged as the president's chief television defender. It is also true that Trump isn't the subject or target of the probe.

On "Face The Nation" on CBS, Sekulow clarified that he's so confident that there isn't any investigation into the president because they have not received any notification from the special counsel's office.

"It was 141 characters".

In his defense of the president, Sekulow said that the limitations of Twitter are to blame for the misinformation. However, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers said they never felt urged by Trump to intervene in the investigation.

Investigators have also sought information from recently retired NSA Deputy Richard Ledgett, according to the source. However, Sekulow has said that the tweet was the President's response to a media article about the non- existent investigation, a direct critique of the lack of authentic sources for the news that was published.
