Attorney says Trump not under investigation

Sekulow made four TV appearances on Sunday to clarify the situation.

"The president is not and has not been under investigation", Sekulow told CBS's "Face the Nation".

"Trump advisers and confidants describe the President as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit - and potentially end - his presidency", AP reported. "The president is not under investigation".

President Trump told his followers everything was "very well" despite the "witch hunt".

Sekulow said the message was merely a response by the president to a Washington Post article citing five unnamed sources who said Trump was under investigation in the Russian Federation case.

Pakistan create history, thrash India in Champions Trophy final
It was the sort of start the Pakistan batsmen were looking for and they got it with a bit of assistance from the Indian bowlers. Just two weeks ago, Pakistan were at a low ebb after crashing to a humiliating 124-run defeat against India in the group stage.

Attorney Jay Sekulow spoke with Jake Tapper on CNN to attempt to clear up any miscommunication caused by Trump's tweet.

"I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", Sekulow said."No one has notified us that he is" under investigation, Sekulow said. Every development in the story so far, however, lends plausibility to the claim that Trump didn't fire Comey to terminate the Russian Federation investigation, he did so out of frustration with Comey's unwillingness to defend him in public.

They include a claim he had been wiretapped by the Obama administration, his Oval Office remarks to Russian diplomats about the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, his private musings about the possibility of firing the Russia special counsel, his claim that there are recordings of White House conversations, and his comments about a "military" deportation operation.

Sekulow, contended tweet by the President this week saying "I am being investigated", was not a confirmation of the investigation, but instead a response to a report in The Washington Post.

Washington D.C. [USA], June 17 (ANI): Some critics of U.S. President Donald Trump have expressed fear that Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein could be fired after the former's tirade apparently against the latter on Twitter, according to the Washington Post. He has already been subpoenaed by the House intelligence committee. Even Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who as a USA senator was Trump's strongest supporter-and for a time, virtually his only one-among top-ranking elected officials, is reportedly on thin ice with the president, who is angry that Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation and didn't defend the president strongly enough (or press his enemies hard enough) when he testified to Congress to last week.

Van hits pedestrians in London; 'number of casualties' reported
Vanzella said the north London community is very diverse, with churches of various faiths within blocks of one another. Manchester was also hit by a severe attack when a bomber killed more than 20 people at an Ariana Grande concert.

Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, fears the administration is undermining Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

One of the toughest jobs in Washington, going on two years now, has been appearing on political talk shows to defend Donald Trump's public statements when they conflict with annoying things like objective facts, Trump's own previous statements, or the statements of his cabinet members and White House staff.

Mueller, the special counsel named by the Justice Department to probe the Russia matter, is investigating whether anyone associated with Trump or his campaign had any illegal dealings with Russian officials or others with ties to the Kremlin.

"If the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he's in for a rude awakening", Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday in a statement. However, that argument conveniently ignores that Comey was sacked more than a month ago, prior to the appointment of Mueller, and most importantly, that Comey's firing itself could have been the reason for opening an investigation into Trump's possible obstruction of justice.
