Trump attorney: President is not under investigation

But there is no hard-and-fast rule requiring a potential defendant to be advised of an investigation and his or her role in it.

"Look, you're asking me to pick up the phone on an investigation we don't even know exists", Sekulow said. Before Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, Rod Rosenstein, the Trump-appointed deputy attorney general, wrote a memorandum recommending that Comey be dismissed. Let President Trump do his job; let Republicans and Democrats in Congress do theirs; and, if any law has been broken in connection with Russian meddling or obstruction of justice, let the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the special counsel investigate and act accordingly.

Meanwhile, other sources have said that the President is indeed under investigation for the highly unconventional firing of the FBI Chief. The President again called the Russian Federation probe a "witch hunt" over the weekend while a legal adviser tried to walk back Trump's admission Friday that he is under investigation. So technically, Trump is correct: The man who wrote the memo endorsing Comey's removal has authorized an investigation that is reportedly probing whether that removal somehow constituted a felony.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Jared Kushner, President Trump's son-in-law and a senior White House adviser, will be traveling to Israel this week with Jason Greenblatt for "Israeli-Palestinian peace talks".

According to 18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361, if at the time Mr. Comey believed the comment constituted obstruction of justice, he was legally required to report it.

That said, the Mueller investigation continues to be a big pain for Trump.

"He said that if, in light of all of this, the removal of James Comey would lengthen the amount of time that this investigation would take - he thought it was in the best interest of the American people", Sekulow said.

While Sekulow did brush off all allegations of investigations being carried out into the President's actions, he did later let slip about an obstruction of justice investigation that may be directed at Trump. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), who, like Rubio, sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said the panel's work in the Russian Federation probe is far from concluded.

She found that by sending the money to Bankorp, the SARB failed to comply with the SA Reserve Bank Act, among other findings. The bank has received the Public Protector's report, Barclays Africa said in a separate email.

Trump is under pressure to reveal whether he has any tape recordings of private conversations with Comey.

Rep. Jim Himes, a Democratic member of the House Intelligence committee, says "we are a ways yet from being able to conclude anything" when it comes to his committee's investigation into Russia's actions in the 2016 election. Cuomo also challenged Sekulow's claim that the president was above legal reproach for obstruction of justice in his firing of Comey, noting that the question had never before been litigated.

Former House Speaker, Newt Gingrich said, "I don't think that tweet served him".

Sekulow cited testimony by Comey earlier this month that the president wasn't a target of an investigation.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said. Angus King, an independent from ME, said "we're 20 percent into" the collusion aspect of the investigation. Donald Trump's lawyer is still falsely arguing that the DOJ doesn't have the right to investigate the President, if that gives you a sense of what he's bringing to the table for President Trump. It's hard to think of something more self-incriminating than the president firing the person investigating him for obstruction. This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses.
