Washington Lawyer: Trump is not under investigation, despite tweet

The denial comes days after Trump appeared to confirm he is being investigated, sending a tweet complaining that he is the target of a "witch hunt".

President Donald Trump is not under investigation for obstruction of justice despite his tweet Friday that appeared to confirm he is, a member of his legal team said, doubling down on the point with appearances on almost every major Sunday TV talk show. "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.

This was not the first time Mr Trump had taken aim at the pair.

Your afternoon shot of politics, sent straight from the desk of Joshua Miller. On "Fox News Sunday", Sekulow said that he was certain the president was not under investigation because he had received no notification or other indication that he was.

"He s not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation. there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period". "And the best thing that can happen for everybody, the president, the country, our institutions [of] the government, is for a full and thorough and credible investigation that reveals everything".

As evidence, Sekulow said that Trump has not been notified of any investigation.

"I can say categorically that the collusion or cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over", the Maine senator told NBC's "Meet the Press", adding that the probe could be done by the end of 2017. The president has directed some of his frustration at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Mueller.

US President Donald Trump is reportedly so incensed at claims he is being investigated for obstructing justice in the Russian Federation election probe that he has started screaming at television sets in the White House. Let's hope President Trump is made of sturdier stuff and can resist the temptation to tell special counsel Robert Mueller, "You're fired!" "The timing of the thaw, however, has provoked accusations that the president is trying to ingratiate himself with a key member of a congressional panel investigating potential ties between Trump associates and Russian Federation".

MR BILL VALDEZ, a former senior official with the US Department of Energy, on growing concerns over Mr Trump's actions and treatment of key staff.

On Sunday, Trump again called the investigation a "witch hunt".

Lieu's comments come after Trump and his allies against Mueller's character and possible conflicts of interest in an attempt to discredit him and his investigation.

"There's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know", the lawyer, who is chief counsel to the Washington, D.C. -based American Center for Law & Justice, told CNN. He ticked through achievements such deregulation measures and the appointment of Supreme Court justice Neil Gorsuch, touted a job approval rating poll, and promised "Infrastructure, Healthcare and Tax Cuts in works!"

Angus King, an independent who caucuses with the Democrats, estimated that investigators are just 20 percent into their probe, which could last for months.

"So the president responds - I want to be crystal clear here". This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses.
