Trump's personal attorney says president not under any investigation

"I just gave you the legal theory of how the constitution works", Sekulow said. The president takes action based on numerous events, including recommendations from his attorney general and the deputy attorney general's office.

The Post broke a huge story four days ago, claiming that President Trump was under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for obstructing justice.

Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a "witch hunt".

U.S. President Donald Trump is not under investigation by the prosecutor probing Russian meddling in last year's election and his possible obstruction of justice, one of his lawyers said Sunday, contradicting Trump's own tweet acknowledging the probe.

You could nearly hear the groan coming from anti-Trump liberals who were so looking forward to the coming impeachment trial.

Sekulow said that Trump, in his tweet, was reacting to a story in the Washington Post that was the first to report Mueller was examining whether Trump had tried to obstruct the probe by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in May.

The chairman of the mosque , Mohammed Kozbar, described the incident as a "cowardly attack" and said there were many injuries. A 48-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder after being initially held by members of the public.

But Sekulow claimed the president wasn't referring to an actual investigation in the message, but instead a news report about one. "That tweet was in response to a "Washington Post" story that ran with five unnamed sources, without identifying the agencies they represented, saying that the special counsel had broadened out his investigation to include the president", he said.

Speculation that President Donald Trump plans to remove the special investigator looking into Russia's meddling with the presidential election has been rampant.

Sekulow says the president has a social media platform that can reach 107 million people and "I don't tell him what to write or not write". Comey testified to Congress that Trump then asked him to back off the investigation into his fired national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Trump is under pressure to reveal whether he has any tape recordings of private conversations with Comey. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over".

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

Intelligence Committee Ranking Member Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) said failure to respond could result in subpoenas being issued. But America's laws today are a web in which even the most innocuous citizen can get tangled-a citizen who has business dealings with figures as corrupt as many Russian businessmen and officials tend to be is nearly certainly open to prosecution on one technicality or another, as is anyone who talks to federal investigators and tells even the smallest of lies.

Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.

Still, Republicans like Senate Intelligence Committee member Marco Rubio, support ongoing probes.

MrTrump's anger has highlighted the difficulty his legal team and advisers face in stopping the President from weighing in on an active investigation.

The future of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein seemed in doubt Friday when Trump appeared to attack him in the tweet. "There is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".

Trump insists his campaign had nothing to do with Russian efforts to undermine credibility in the USA election.

"I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", he said. "This is a very complex matter involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents and lots of witnesses".
