Is Donald Trump Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice?

I mean who else but him would you want in this position?

If Mueller strays from the straight and narrow, Rosenstein should not hesitate to remove him and name someone else to serve as special counsel.

The hot political betting markets are all about who gets fired next, whether Trump will testify to Mueller this year, which House wins the 2020 US Election and so on. To make it even more hard, their client's public statements often threaten to undercut their work.

Kushner's current attorney said that discussions he had with other lawyers were to seek advice, not to replace his team. He was speaking on Fox News Sunday where specific questions about the alleged investigation were asked of him. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

You have to wonder just what "anonymous sources" the Washington Post relied on to publish this bit of fake news.

It's too early to say for sure what legal strategy his team will settle on, especially since the full contours of the probe aren't known and no public allegations have been leveled by investigators.

Comey also told the Senate that he intentionally leaked his contemporaneous memos detailing his conversations with Trump in order to prompt the appointment of a special counsel.

Ironically, there is a viable case for obstruction of justice to be asserted against Comey, which stands in contrast to the questionable Post story on purported obstruction of justice investigation of the president.

Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, will meet on Wednesday with the committee's Republican chairman, Charles Grassley, and its top Democrat, Dianne Feinstein, said the sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Trump and his aides may well end up in the clear, but months of recriminations ahead will further polarize the capital and cast a shadow over his administration, which is already struggling for traction after a tumultuous first five months.

Special counsel investigating Kushner business dealings
Now it appears Mueller is examining the president's own conduct, which may include whether Trump tried to obstruct justice. CBS News confirmed late last month that Kushner is under scrutiny in the probe into Russian election meddling .

On both occasions, Sekulow denied that Trump's tweet from last week - "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" - was a confirmation that he is under investigation.

On Sunday, Trump again referred to the probe, but dismissed it.

According to Comey's written testimony to the committee, the memo detailed what the then-director felt was a request from the president to drop an investigation into former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "Frequently, recusal is sort of an escape from your responsibilities, and if you have every confidence that you can do your job appropriately, you should hang in there and do what's necessary".

In his defense of the president, Sekulow said that the limitations of Twitter are to blame for the misinformation. Comey was among those critics who cited Lynch's June 2016 tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton as a sign the Justice Department was not capable of an independent investigation into Hillary Clinton.

"If I hired you I'd want you to make that phone call", he added. His son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner is getting his own set of lawyers on the ready before the next string of Russian Federation probe stories turn up on the front pages of Washington Post and The New York Times - both going after this one story with all the ammunition they've got.

Trump has also retained Sekulow, who has been the face of the legal team on TV - although he, too, has an untypical background, having largely specialized in religious liberty claims.
