Lawyer Claims Despite Tweets, Trump Isn't Under Investigation, 'Period'

Sen. Marco Rubio on Sunday rejected calls to shut down the Russian Federation probe and urged President Trump to embrace a full investigation.

He was then pressed by the host on Trump's tweet from Friday, in which he wrote: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director". The president fired back over Twitter and at a news conference, claiming that some of the things Comey said weren't true. "Witch Hunt", Trump tweeted, referring to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who in early May had written a memo for Trump recommending that former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief James Comey be fired. Thursday night, Rosenstein issued an unusual statement complaining about leaks in the case.

Sekulow, the chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice since 1990, defended Trump's use of social media, saying: "He's able to communicate with 107 million people on his various social media platforms on a regular basis as he needs to, so he can directly reach a lot of people".

But Jay Sekulow, who is part of Trump's legal team, said Trump was in fact writing about reports of an investigation, not an actual probe.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told CNN that Mueller has a "stellar" reputation and he believes the investigation must be carried out. "That tweet was in response to a "Washington Post" story that ran with five unnamed sources, without identifying the agencies they represented, saying that the special counsel had broadened out his investigation to include the president", he said. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

Sekulow's interviews Sunday were the first on-record pushbacks on readings of the tweet as an affirmation.

US President Donald Trump said that he was under investigation for firing the former director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

And earlier this week, Donald Trump himself had tweeted that he was under investigation.

By the time he dragged himself to Chris Wallace at Fox News, Sekulow seemed a tad on edge. The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

Sekulow has publicly criticized Comey, whom Trump fired. What is clear is that he could order the Justice Department to ax Mueller, which may result in Rosenstein's departure and would certainly intensify the uproar over the investigation.

Sekulow stressed repeatedly that Trump is not under investigation. Rosenstein's replacement would probably be Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand.

But days later, Donald Trump admitted that the Russian Federation probe did play a role in Comey's firing.

Sekulow said he respects the attorney-client privilege, unlike former FBI Director James Comey. "Witch Hunt", wrote Trump.

The tweet was widely interpreted as an acknowledgment that Trump was under legal and criminal scrutiny by Mueller.

Schiff told "This Week" on ABC News that Trump and his lawyers want to lay the foundation to discredit whatever the special counsel will come up with. Trump got rid of Comey, in May to hamper an inquiry into his sacked national security adviser, Michael Flynn.
