Trump Attorney Insists President Is Not Under Investigation

Trump Attorney Insists President Is Not Under Investigation

The Post's story came soon after it reported that the FBI's Russian Federation investigation, spearheaded by special counsel Robert Mueller, had expanded to include a senior White House official as a "person of interest".

"He takes the action that [the Attorney General's office] recommended and now he's being investigated by the Department of Justice.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 terminations." starts Sekulow.

Trump has denied making these comments, which Comey said he documented in contemporaneous memos.

A source familiar with the Mueller probe said on Thursday that investigators would have to gather a large amount of evidence before an interview with the president would be warranted.

"This is an individual as president of the United States, has the social media platform that reaches 107 million people instantaneously with a message", said Sekulow. "What I found in these investigations is when you do them, you look at things you need to look at in addition".

"Okay, well good, we're in agreement", Wallace responded.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said.

"I don't believe it's going to happen".

Meanwhile, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, may be getting new legal representation as the investigation heats up.

It is to be noted that Carson's stance on the issue is a noteworthy break from President Trump and his administration's stance, which has time and again called the whole investigation a "witch hunt". Mueller left his position at the firm to lead the investigation.

Sekulow concluded that the president can't be investigated for obstruction of justice, because he had full authority to fire Comey - something the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director himself pointed out in his testimony.

"Everyone who serves the president serves at the pleasure of the president", Spicer added, when asked about how Trump would be able to fire special counsel Robert Mueller.

When exactly is the first day of summer?
The summer solstice, despite popular belief, is actually the point at which Earth is farthest from the sun and not closest. The summer solstice, which falls between spring and autumn, starts June 20 and lasts until September 23.

Last week I wrote that the biggest danger Trump faces from the special counsel investigation is not the obstruction probe, but Mueller's digging into the finances of Trump's associates.

The top Democrat on the House intelligence committee says the panel is looking forward to getting a response from the White House this week as to whether President Donald Trump has tapes of private conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey.

The Trump team's style makes for a study in contrasts when compared to the seasoned group of prosecutors and criminal law experts working under Robert Mueller, the tight-lipped, respected ex-FBI director.

Senator Marco Rubio of Florida said, "The FBI is going to do its job. Something about the way I was conducting it, the president felt, created pressure on him that he wanted to relieve", Comey told the Senate Select Intelligence Committee.

Trump returned to the White House on Sunday after spending Father's Day weekend at the Camp David presidential retreat.
