President Trump's lawyer stresses he is 'not under investigation' by FBI

He lashed out at a top Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry, reflecting his mounting frustration with the unrelenting controversy that has consumed his early presidency.

On Friday, the president tweeted, "I'm being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director".

But the President is yet to heed that advice, tweeting on Sunday: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt". "The Washington Post issued a story that had five anonymous sources, which they never identified what agencies those sources originated out of".

"The President is under investigation", he said. But let me tell you the factor that came into exist here. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

The lawyer also suggested Twitter s character limit may be partly to blame.

Kushner's attorney said such a review would be "standard practice".

There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated".

Sekulow also insisted that Trump's tweets have posed no problems for his legal team.

In a combative and testy exchange on "Fox News Sunday", Sekulow acknowledged he could not know for sure that Mueller has not opened an investigation, but said he had no reason to believe he had.

ABC News reported Friday that Rosenstein has privately acknowledged he may need to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation but has yet to seek a formal opinion on the matter.

It's been another big week in the investigation into Russian meddling in the US elections.

The "cloud" that Trump has been complaining about for months got bigger and darker this week.

Sekulow: "We've received no notice of investigation". The official demanded anonymity because the official was not authorized to be named discussing the deliberations.

The accusations have been repeatedly dismissed as groundless by both the Kremlin and the Trump team.

When Wallace pointed out that Sekulow had appeared to agree in his answer that the president is under investigation, the lawyer grew flustered.

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

Robert Mueller, the special counsel named by the department to investigate the Russian Federation matter, is now examining whether Trump or others sought to obstruct the probe, a person familiar with the inquiry said on Thursday.

However, just days later ABC news reported Rosenstein has said in private he might need to recuse himself, citing a memo he wrote to the President, which was later used in Trump's justification for firing Comey.

US President Donald Trump thrusts his fist at the Manuel Artime Theatre in Miami on June 16, 2017 after signing an executive order reversing Obama administration Cuba policies.

The White House has directed questions for details to outside legal counsel, which has not responded.
