Lawyer says Trump not under investigation

"Sekulow says that when people study the 2016 presidential election, they'll look back at Trump's communications as the most successful utilization of social media platforms and communication in our lifetime".

There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated". I don't think it serves him well. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Sean Hannity, on his show Friday evening, on the Fox News Channel, after stating that he believes the "deck is stacked" or so it appears to him, against President Trump in the FBI investigation, asked Newt Gingrich, a friend and supporter of Trump, whether Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General, and Special Prosecutor Mueller, should step down from the investigation due to their connections to the dismissed FBI Director James Comey, who was sacked by Trump earlier last month.

Trump's tweets following the report appeared to confirm the investigation, but his lawyer said it only appeared that way because of the character limit on Twitter.

President Donald Trump, first lady Melania Trump, and their son and Barron Trump, walk to Marine One across the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, Saturday, June 17, 2017, en route to Camp David in Maryland. Mueller left his position at the firm to lead the investigation.

Sekulow stressed repeatedly that Trump is not under investigation. He said the tweet last Friday from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.

But since there was none travelling on the flight, a nurse volunteered to help deliver the child along with the airline staff. In fact, as the Independent noted, five other infants were born on commercial flights in the a year ago .

The President and his allies have declared open season on Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the probe. He also cited the testimony from former FBI Director James Comey before the Senate intelligence committee, in which Comey said he had told Trump he was not under investigation in the months leading up to his May 9 firing. Attention is focused on the question of obstruction simply because so much of Trump's campaign to deep-six the investigation has been conducted openly, at full volume. Kushner has been represented on business matters and other issues by Jamie Gorelick.

The source familiar with the Mueller probe told Reuters that Mueller was also examining whether Trump or others tried to interfere with the investigation.

"I don't believe it's going to happen", said Rubio on CNN's "State of the Union". Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), a senior member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees known for being measured and reserved, released a fiery statement Friday.

Rep. Adam Schiff says he wants the White House to acknowledge the tapes or make clear there are no tapes and "it was an idle threat".

President Trump told his followers everything was "very well" despite the "witch hunt". But Comey has testified under oath that in a private meeting, Trump raised the investigation of fired national security adviser Michael Flynn - part of the larger Russian Federation probe - and said, "I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go".

"The president of the United States takes action after receiving a memorandum from his attorney general, a letter actually from his attorney general and memorandum from his deputy attorney general", Sekulow told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program.
