Trump not under investigation, says his lawyer

Trump not under investigation, says his lawyer

"You just said, sir, you just said that he's being investigated".

Whatever the reason, the Post report set off a wave of liberal celebrations over the imminent demise of the president.

"It looks like we have got a simmering tea kettle here, and the President seems to be testing the waters about whether he ought to go ahead and fire Robert Mueller", said Richard Ben-Veniste, a former Watergate prosecutor who is now a CNN legal analyst.

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.

When the host noted that Sekulow had just twice said the president is under investigation, the attorney insisted otherwise.

Iran strikes Islamic State targets in Syria in response to parliament attack
Last week the Senate voted 98-2 to pass new Iran sanctions targeting 1st, Iran's ballistic missile program and 2nd, the IRGC [a]. Last week, Iran accused the USA and its regional ally Saudi Arabia of supporting and aiding those attacks.


"That's incorrect", Sekulow responded.

AP photo Marc Kasowitz, personal attorney of President Donald Trump, makes a statement June 8 at the National Press Club after the congressional testimony of former FBI Director James Comey in Washington, D.C. President Donald Trump, whose combative instincts are to lash out and not retreat, has given his legal team a clear direction: fight, fight, fight.

Here's what he told Chris Wallace: "That tweet, Chris, was in response to the Washington Post story that alleged that five unnamed sources, anonymous sources, leaked to the Washington Post that the president was, in fact, under investigation". Cuomo also challenged Sekulow's claim that the president is above legal reproach for obstruction of justice in his firing of Comey, noting that the question has never before been litigated. To their minds, "investigation" is tantamount to "guilty", and their cherished goal of removing Donald Trump from office was on track to succeed.

Appearing on a series of morning news programmes, attorney Jay Sekulow repeatedly stressed "the president has not been and is not under investigation".

"I think there's general agreement", Feinstein told CNN on Monday. If there is an investigation of the circumstances of Comey's firing, and the Deputy Attorney General (who is serving as Acting AG for the investigation due to Jeff Sessions' recusal) was instrumental in the firing, that sure looks like a conflict, Turley says.

Man Utd boss Mourinho accused of Spanish tax fraud
Messi and his father, Jorge, were found guilty on three counts of defrauding the tax department to the tune of about £3.5million. A prosecutor says he did not declare income from the use of his image rights in order to get an "illicit benefit".


The Post reported last week that Robert Mueller - the special counsel appointed to investigate Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election - was looking into whether Trump obstructed justice.

"I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", he said.

Sekulow sidestepped Cuomo's charge, returning to his claim that the president's reasons for firing Comey can not be investigated given that the Federal Bureau of Investigation director serves at the pleasure of the president. That's it. That's all that Jay Sekulow knows.

"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. To make it even more hard, their client's public statements often threaten to undercut their work.

As for the issue of that other interesting tweet, where the President implied he has tapes of his meetings with various people in which he discusses not being under investigation: "This issue will be addressed in due course and I suspect next week".
