Appearing on the Sunday talk shows, new Trump legal defender Jay Sekulow set out to deny Trump was under investigation (calling the president a liar?). "What we know is that James Comey, when he testified, confirmed that he told the president on three separate occasions he was not under investigation regarding this Russian probe".
Jay Sekulow, Trump's latest member of the legal team, said on CBS's Face the Nation that the 45th President of the United States of America "has not been and is not" under any investigation whatsoever.

Moreover, he used an Federal Bureau of Investigation computer to create a memo of an incident that took place within his scope of work, which involved a meeting with the president and the conversation that transpired between the then-acting director and the nation's chief executive. He said he told Mr. Comey "that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice needed to be careful to follow department policies regarding appropriate contact with the White House".
The panel sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday. Trump has publicly denied asking Comey for his loyalty; Comey's sworn testimony also directly contradicts Trump on this point.
