Trump's attorney says he is not under investigation

Department of Justice-appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller is conducting what is generally called a preliminary inquiry into possible obstruction of justice involving President Donald Trump, as it pertains to his broader investigation into Russian meddling in the USA presidential election.

Sources say that President Donald Trump will "fight" the investigation into his campaign's possible collusion with Russian intelligence. Sekulow added that Trump is "very effective" with his use of social media.

Sekulow, who is 61, isn't new to the Washington scene - he's made a career championing conservative causes in court for decades.

Sekulow is so certain that Trump is under investigation that even when he's trying to do damage control over two Freudian slips that confirm Trump is under investigation, Sekulow releases another Freudian slip, beginning to reference the inves...never mind...

Also on Sunday, Sekulow appeared on CNN's Face The Nation and apparently confused host Jake Tapper so much that BuzzFeed wrote a story based on nine screenshots of Tapper looking perplexed during the interview. 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.

Postscript: In the same "Fox News Sunday" interview, Sekulow argued, "Unlike James Comey, who leaks information to the press, I actually respect the attorney-client privilege". He's since received backlash from liberal media outlets. "That means there should exist on some server somewhere in the White House, a very thorough record of the kind of phone calls that nay investigator of the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's ties to Russian Federation any obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of those ties, should be able to access", Perlstein said.

Prior to being fired, Comey had informed Trump that he was not, himself, a target of the FBI Russia investigation.

This is, however, a tough sell, in part because multiple major news organizations have confirmed that the president is in fact being investigated for obstruction of justice, and in part because of phrases such as "I am being investigated" and "He's being investigated" don't lend themselves to nuanced interpretations.

Schiff also said he believes recent congressional testimony from Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions points to signs of possible obstruction by Trump that warrant further investigation.

Chaos unfurls in Washington as Trump continues to be at odds with his legal team, often tweeting out information about the probe that his lawyers have to dismiss or walk back.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has given his legal team a clear direction: Fight, fight, fight.

Trump's tweet was most likely in reference to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, whose memo he cited as justification for firing Comey, and who had appointed Mueller as special counsel.

Sekulow says that Trump hasn't been notified of any investigation.

Turley says that, as a result, "Mueller could not be viewed as a neutral choice by anyone on Trump's side due to his history with Comey".

Rubio, who also appeared on CBS, said "that's not going to happen" when asked whether he's concerned that Trump may be preparing to fire Mueller and Rosenstein.
