President Trump not under investigation, according to his Lawyers

One of Donald Trump's lawyers insisted Sunday that the president was not under criminal investigation as part of the sweeping probe into Russia's alleged meddling in American elections, despite the USA leader's tweets angrily calling the whole saga a "distraction".

U.S. President Donald Trump began his day with a stream of tweets defending his record and lashing out at the investigation into Russian interference in the election. He went so far as to file a ridiculous ethics complaint against then-FBI Director James Comey over Comey's handling of the Clinton email investigation. President Trump fired James Comey to impede or end that investigation.

"Witch Hunt", he said in a tweet.

He said, however, that Sekulow's comments could mean the White House was taking the position that no investigation exists until Mueller's team officially confirms it, disregarding media reports based on anonymous sourcing.

Sekulow's interview with NBC was one of four scheduled Sunday morning television appearances. He says the Trump tweet was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.

With Democrats salivating at the possibility they can find some link between Trump and the Russians, he needs to let special counsel Robert Mueller follow the leads.

Attorney Jay Sekulow spoke with Jake Tapper on CNN to attempt to clear up any miscommunication caused by Trump's tweet.

Durant's three sinks Cavaliers
With the win Golden State moved to 15-0 in the playoffs by finishing the game with an 11-0 run over Cavaliers . K.D. comes down, hits a big three, puts them up one, iso on the wing. "It's not over", Durant said.

"There has been no notification from the special counsel s office that the president is under investigation". Sekulow added that the confirmatory tone of Trump's tweet was due to Twitter's word limit, "There's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know".

Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.

Trump's tweet was posted more than a day after a Washington Post story reported that "Five people briefed on the interview requests, speaking on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly", confirmed that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, appointed to look into allegations that members of the Trump administration colluded with Russian Federation to interfere with the election, was investigating whether or not Trump had sought to obstruct justice.

"You're right, Chris. I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", Sekulow responded. What makes this discussion so weird is that not only does the President appear to be the subject of an investigation but as a factual matter there's nearly no question that he's guilty.

Many took the message as a confirmation that Trump is under investigation, but Sekulow explained his client was talking about a different matter. "He can not in a Twitter statement include all of that in there, but "The Washington Post" statement came out that morning", he said.

Deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein has replaced Attorney-General Jeff Sessions as head of the Russia-Trump probe.

If he does that, the power would be placed in the hands of Rachel Lee Brand, the third-highest official in the Department of Justice, according to The Washington Post.
