Despite tweet, lawyer says Trump not being probed

Foolishly allowing himself to be baited by a Washington Post report that special counsel Robert Mueller is now weighing whether the president committed an obstruction crime, Trump tweeted: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

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. And one of Trump's lawyers, Jay Sekulow, said categorically on Meet the Press that, "The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction". "You could know. Why you haven't picked up the phone and find out is a little odd".

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. During his exchange with anchor Chris Wallace, Jay Sekulow twice complained about Trump being under investigation, then clarified that expressing frustration about Trump being under investigation does not amount to a concession that the president actually is being investigated.although he might be.

"Now Mueller faces a huge decision", Thomas said.

But the more frustrated that Trump gets, the more he often hurts himself politically.

The obstruction-of-justice investigation of the president began days after Comey was sacked on May 9, according to people familiar with the matter.

Maybe not coincidentally, Trump has a deadline of the end of this week to turn over to the House Intel Committee all memos about, and any tapes of, conversations with Comey. There's reason to doubt the competence of the president's current legal team.

A representative from President Donald Trump's legal team said Trump is not under investigation, despite the President tweeting "I am being investigated" this week.

Law enforcement sources say that Mueller is gathering information and still deciding whether to launch a full-blown investigation looking into whether or not the president committed an obstruction of justice. "I'll tell you over a very short period of time", Trump shot back, adding, "Oh you're going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer" as reporters kept lobbing more tape questions. Comey did tell Trump he was not personally under investigation, but that was before the director was sacked.

Sekulow admitted Sunday that his belief that Trump is not under investigation is based on the fact that he has received no notification that the president is. Before Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, the Trump-appointed deputy attorney general, wrote a memorandum recommending that Comey be dismissed. 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.

A spokesperson for Kasowitz did not return request for comment about Sekulow's interview.

"I have no idea if he's looking at that or not", Sekulow responded, before noting the president has the constitutional authority to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director.
