Despite Trump's claim, lawyer says president not under investigation

"Witch Hunt." Pressed by TV interviewers, Sekulow declared that Trump was not being investigated, then tried to walk that back, at least slightly, saying there had been no such notification.

If that wasn't confusing enough, things got worse yesterday.

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. The lessons of history suggest such traumas raise questions of political legitimacy and constitutional process that have the potential to sour life in Washington for years in the future. If Jesus can be "fully man" and "fully god" at the same time, I suppose Trump can be under investigation and not under investigation at the same time.

Both Coats and Rogers declined before the Senate intelligence committee earlier this month to answer questions about their conversations with Trump, but both said they had never felt urged by Trump to intervene in the Russian Federation probes. 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.

"Trump has a compulsion to counter-attack and is very pugnacious".

He spoke on ABC's "This Week". "When I have been crystal clear that the president is not and has not been under investigation".

Fox News host Chris Wallace and Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump's legal team, went head to head Sunday over whether the president is under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat on the committee, said Monday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" that "obstruction of justice has to be included" in the investigation, and critiqued Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump who has dismissed the idea the President could have obstructed justice by firing Comey.

James scored 15 points on 7-of-8 shooting in the first quarter, including a vicious dunk over Durant and JaVale McGee. Irving was asked if he ever imagined scoring 38 points and LeBron James scoring 39 points - and the Cavaliers losing.

"If you can prove that there was something there and the president knew about it, then the obstruction case looks far stronger", said Washington attorney Justin Dillon.

Mueller's investigators have asked for information and will talk to Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Adm. Mike Rogers, according to a source familiar with the matter. The source said investigators have sought information from Richard Ledgett, who recently retired as deputy NSA director and, the source said, had written a memo documenting an attempt from Trump urging Rogers to tamp down on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation. As Rachel noted on Friday's show, the White House balked soon after, arguing that just because the president wrote, "I am being investigated", it doesn't mean he's being investigated.

Any confirmation that Mueller has expanded the investigation to consider whether the President obstructed justice with the Comey firing would carry no guarantee of a guilty finding.

The White House recently bolstered the legal team's credentials by hiring former prosecutor John Dowd, who may be best known for investigating allegations of improper gambling by baseball player Pete Rose.

Trump attorney: President is not under investigation
It's hard to think of something more self-incriminating than the president firing the person investigating him for obstruction. Angus King, an independent from ME , said "we're 20 percent into" the collusion aspect of the investigation.
