Attorney: Trump not under investigation

Attorney: Trump not under investigation”

Although the White House initially said Rosenstein's memo led Trump to fire Comey, the president later said in a television interview that he did so because of the Russian Federation investigation.

On CNN's "State of the Union" program, he said flatly, "The president is not a subject or target of an investigation".

Multiple committees in the Senate and House of Representatives are investigating various aspects of Russian election meddling.

Trump has lashed out against the Russian Federation probe on Twitter and his allies have called for the ouster of special counsel Robert Mueller and questioned his impartiality. His statement, however, contradicts Trump's tweet that it was Mueller who recommended Comey's dismissal. The Washington Post first reported the story.

But Jay Sekulow, part of Trump s legal team, said the president was writing about reports of an investigation, not an actual probe.

The FBI and federal prosecutors, however, do not routinely notify people that they are under investigation. "Witch Hunt." He appeared to be referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

James Comey was, as head of the FBI, leading an investigation into a number of Trump's associates.

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

Vice President Mike Pence has hired a private lawyer to represent his interests in the expanding probe. I would say the answer is yes, for a number of reasons.

The president also tweeted about a poll that gives him a 50% approval rating, adding that it is higher than his predecessor Barack Obama's.

"Trump has a compulsion to counterattack and is very pugnacious".

He cited former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who told the same ABC show that he has a problem with what the special counsel is doing. I mean, just think about this for a minute.

"But it's nearly like it's who he has been his whole life", Gingrich added. 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. "Republicans are going to be held responsible for that", Rubio said.

"The safest thing is probably for him to recuse himself", said John Wood, a former USA attorney.

We're getting a bit lost in the weeds here. "I honestly, deeply, truly believe that". "Nearly everybody else does" other than Trump, he said. He sent out another Twitter post on Thursday saying: "You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"

"Over the past year, however, the F.B.l.'s reputation and credibility have suffered substantial damage, and it has affected the entire Department of Justice. As we know of today, the president is not under investigation". Angus King, an independent from ME, stressed that the probe will likely last for a long time. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations".

Recent reports say that Rosenstein has told colleagues he might have to step away from the probe, but it is unclear why.

Wallace: You just said that he's being investigated. "There's a lot of information yet to go".

"The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to The Washington Post", Sekulow told NBC television s "Meet the Press". "Witch Hunt", the president wrote on Twitter. Last week he described the concerns about Russian influence in US elections as a "phony" story.
