Trump's legal plan built in his image: Fight, fight, fight

On Meet the Press, he said, "But when you see a tweet, okay, or a utilization of social media, and the president has, I mean, his social media reach is over a hundred million".

Though Trump immediately deleted that tweet, he followed it up with a second tweet criticizing the Democratic party, rallying his followers to vote for congressional hopeful Karen Handel in the special election for Georgia's 6th congressional district. "Spicer insisted Russia had nothing to do with Comey's firing; Trump told Kremlin officials he fired "nut job" Comey to get the" Russian thing" off his back.

"Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade seemed to brake from the ranks on Monday over the controversial anti-Trump version of the play Julius Caesar.

In his prepared testimony, Comey said that he had written memos immediately after meetings with the President out of concern that Trump might later lie about the nature of their interactions.

On both occasions, Sekulow denied that Trump's tweet from last week - "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" - was a confirmation that he is under investigation.

A member of President Trump's legal team said on Sunday that the president was not under investigation by the special counsel looking into Russia's election-year meddling, contradicting Mr. Trump's assertion in a Friday morning tweet that he is a subject of the widening inquiry. His interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace proved to be the most combative and compelling one. When not even the White House can get its story straight, what are we to believe?

"He takes the action that [the Attorney General's office] recommended and now he's being investigated by the Department of Justice", Sekulow complained.

"As I said all weekend, there has been no notification to any of us that the President is under any investigation and as I said, James Comey has said on three separate occasions that the President is not under investigation", said Jay Sekulow, repeating an argument he also made on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper on Sunday.

Recently, even before joining Trump's legal team, Sekulow has defended numerous president's actions, including his leak of classified material to Russian officials. Kremlingate is just like Watergate, in other words. The views expressed in this article are those of just the author.
