President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential race, adding that the president has not received any notification that he is being investigated.
The Washington Post reported last week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who is running the federal investigation into the Trump campaign's potential Russian Federation ties, was now focusing on Trump himself for obstruction of justice over the firing of FBI Director James Comey.
"You've now said that he's being investigated", Wallace said.

He said a Friday tweet from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.
"Because we've received no notice of investigation".
Rosenstein drafted the letter for the basis of Comey's firing and many believe he is now caught in the President's cross-hairs because he appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller. In fact, to the contrary. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over". "But with all due respect, the president said "I am being investigated" in a tweet and people take his word on that.
