Trump lawyer says president not under investigation

Rubio says Trump firing former FBI Director James Comey hasn't impeded the FBI's or the Senate intelligence committee's investigations into Russia's role in the 2016 campaign. "So no, the president's not under investigation, has not been", he said.

A lawyer for President Donald Trump said he is not under investigation, even though the president himself said he was.

"The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt", the Republican leader tweeted while away on his first weekend to Camp David, the official USA presidential retreat in the mountains of western Maryland.

Sekulow, on one of four scheduled appearances on Sunday political talk shows, several times insisted the president was referring to a news report about an investigation, not an actual probe. Rubio says it's important for the American people to know how the Russians interfered because we have more elections coming up.

Sekulow, however, said Trump's tweet from Trump was specifically directed at a "fake" media report with no "documented sources". "The president is not under investigation".

Mr. Trump told reporters in a Rose Garden ceremony he would be "100 percent" willing to testify under oath, and Sekulow told CBS News' John Dickerson that "the president was very clear" about testifying and has said "if he was asked to do it he would". "That's impossible. The president cannot be investigated, or certainly cannot be found liable for engaging in an activity he clearly has power to do under the constitution".

Sekulow said it was a response to an article in the Washington Post alleging Trump was under investigation for obstruction of justice.

On Friday, the president seemingly confirmed the Post report two days earlier that he was being targeted by Mueller.

Police have sealed off adjacent streets, and London Ambulance Service said it has sent "a number of resources" to the scene. The Metropolitan Police called it "a major incident " and said that a number of casualties are being treated at the scene.

Sekulow said it was ironic that a leak would take place by five anonymous sources saying that the special counsel had increased the scope of their investigation without even identifying the agencies upon which those individuals were speaking.

The response comes after the Wall Street Journal reported on a May 15 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they submitted to the Secret Service. "He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there, but "The Washington Post" statement came out that morning", he said.

Sekulow blamed the confusion over Twitter's 140-character limit.

President Donald Trump is beginning his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election.

The tweet was widely interpreted as an acknowledgment that Trump was under legal and criminal scrutiny by Mueller . Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel following Comey's ouster in early May.
