Trump attorney says president not under federal investigation

Sekulow went on argue that to say he claimed Trump is under investigation is "unfair", adding, "I do not appreciate you putting words in my mouth". Kenneth Starr started out in 1994 charged with looking into the Clintons' Whitewater real estate dealings. But the president's attorney repeatedly and definitively declared that Trump is not, in fact, under investigation.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said.

"Well, no one's notified us that he is so I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this: We have not been notified that there's an investigation of the president of the United States", Sekulow says. The president also sent a tweet on Friday that explicitly stated he was aware that he is under investigation. Democrats and progressives decried what was done to the Clintons.

Sekulow said that the tweet was merely a response to an anonymously-sourced Washington Post story, which reported that special counsel Robert Mueller had indeed expanded his investigation of Russian involvement in the US election to include Trump.

But a new worry about Mueller is taking shape. Witch Hunt." In a spasm of anger - or is it panic? - he insisted, "After 7 months of investigations & committee hearings about my "collusion with the Russians", nobody has been able to show any proof.

The source familiar with the Mueller probe told Reuters that Mueller was also examining whether Trump or others tried to interfere with the investigation. But the president can always fire Rosenstein first.

"It was a striking show of solidarity between two men who past year had been fierce presidential rivals - who had upbraided each other in deeply personal terms during one of the ugliest stretches of the Republican primary", the Washington Post reported on Friday. But a department official said no one asked for the statement and Rosenstein acted on his own.

Yet Donald Trump is used to firing subordinates who don't get the results he wants. The president's response was as it related to "The Washington Post" report. Firing Comey was a grave mistake.

President Donald Trump acknowledged for the first time Friday that he is under federal investigation as part of the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling. Although the White House initially said Rosenstein's memo led Trump to fire Comey, the president later said in a television interview that he did so because of the Russian Federation investigation. Trump surely understands that would be a political disaster.

"Trump advisers and confidants describe the President as increasingly angry over the investigation, yelling at television sets in the White House carrying coverage and insisting he is the target of a conspiracy to discredit - and potentially end - his presidency", AP reported. Cohen has worked for Trump since the mid-2000s and was active in the campaign. Last week he described the concerns about Russian influence in USA elections as a "phony" story. Regardless of whether he can be brought up on criminal charges, if evidence of obstruction piles up in public view, it could cripple his ability to press his agenda in Washington, and could ultimately lead members of Congress to consider an impeachment proceeding. If a Comey could throw someone like Martha Stewart behind bars, a Mueller will find grounds for putting someone in Trump's orbit in jail.
