Trump attorney says president not under investigation

The statement comes even though Trump himself has suggested that he is.

When challenged on Fox News Sunday about the issue, Mr Sekulow said he could not be certain Mr Trump was not under investigation, but that no one had notified the legal team if that was the case.

Sekulow, the chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice since 1990, defended Trump’s use of social media, saying: “He’s able to communicate with 107 million people on his various social media platforms on a regular basis as he needs to, so he can directly reach a lot of people”. King said the “collusion, the co-operation aspect of the investigation is not over”. “There is no investigation”.

“Let me clear. The president’s not under investigation, as James Comey said in his testimony, that the president was not the target of investigation on three different occasions”, Sekulow told CNN in another interview.

Rasmussen said Friday its daily presidential tracking poll that 50% of likely USA voters approve of Trump’s job performance, while the other 50% disapprove. “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”.

The Secret Service has said it has no records of any recording systems or transcripts of any conversations Mr. Trump may have had in the White House. “As we know of today, the president is not under investigation”.

He added, “I can’t imagine a scenario where the president would not be aware of it”. He maintained that the president’s actions won’t prevent any of the investigations from proceeding, and that getting to the bottom of what happened would benefit all involved, including President Trump.

“Well then, don’t tell me what I’m trying to do, because you don’t know what I’m trying to do”, Wallace replied.

Sekulow on Sunday also acknowledged that the president was “fully aware that if in fact he took this action, he would see a lengthening” of the amount of time it would take to get through the Russian Federation investigation if James Comey was removed as FBI director, but still made a decision to move forward with firing Comey because he “thought it was in the best interest of the American people”. Last week he described the concerns about Russian influence in US elections as a “phony” story.
