In spite of tweet, lawyer says Trump not under investigation

Former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate intelligence committee that Trump pressured him on the Russian Federation investigation and asked him to drop an investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn. "So that - nothing has changed in that regard since James Comey's testimony".

"Number two, I think when you study elections, 10 years from now, five years from now in government courses and political management courses, what the president did utilizing social media will be in the history books as the most successful utilization of social media platforms and communication in our lifetime".

"I don't know what the facts will show or what the special counsel will conclude, but Kasowitz, Sekulow & Dowd is not the dream team", he tweeted after the Fox News exchange.

What has been reported about whether Trump is under investigation? The Post cited multiple unnamed sources familiar with those interview requests.

"The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction". He then seriously compromised his professional ethics and broke the law by leaking those notes to the New York Times, in order to draw attention to pressure that the President supposedly placed on him to drop the investigation into General Flynn, Trump's former National Security Advisor.

Mueller, the FBI director before Comey, has not released any details on the investigation.

Whether or not Mueller finds these reports to be valid will be hugely relevant to any finding of obstruction. Perhaps they harbored some resentment against President Trump himself, and took pleasure in his discomfiture.

Rosenstein, in an appearance before Congress on Tuesday, declined to answer a question about his memo recommending Comey's firing by saying it could be part of the special counsel's investigation.

"Why don't you just pick up the phone and call Bob Mueller and ask whether or not your client has any role in their investigation?"

President Donald Trump signs an executive order on Cuba policy, Friday, June 16, 2017, in Miami.

An attorney with Trump's private legal team, Jay Sekulow, asserted on four Sunday TV talk shows that the president's Friday tweet was not confirmation that he was under investigation.

If the Post story turns out to be real news, what we will have is an investigation of an impossible crime being conducted by a special counsel who is burdened by severe conflicts and supervised by another conflicted official.

Almost a month after President Donald Trump's maiden trip to the Middle East as the US commander-in-chief, Jared Kushner, Trump's senior adviser, will travel to the region this week to try reach a peace deal between Israel and Palestinian people, a report said Sunday citing a White House official. During his exchange with anchor Chris Wallace, Jay Sekulow twice complained about Trump being under investigation, then clarified that expressing frustration about Trump being under investigation does not amount to a concession that the president actually is being investigated.although he might be.

"The president takes action based on numerous events including recommendations from his attorney general and the deputy attorney general's office. So that's the constitutional threshold question here". What we know is what James Comey said, the last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back.
