Constitutional Lawyer Denies Trump Is Being Investigated for Obstruction

19 June 2017

While Sekulow said the president is not being investigated by special counsel #Robert Mueller, he contradicted himself on the same show when he said Trump is being investigated.

It also appeared to be a criticism of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and had written a letter recommending the ouster of FBI Director James Comey.

On Friday, Trump himself tweeted that he was "being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director".

Rubio says Trump firing former FBI Director James Comey hasn't impeded the FBI's or the Senate intelligence committee's investigations into Russia's role in the 2016 campaign.

"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.

The attackers were killed by police. "There's a lots of people from Nigeria, from Tunisia from Morocco, from the Arab countries". Eyewitness Boubou Sougou told Guardian reporter Vikram Dodd that the driver "deliberately piled into people on the pavement".

Again, Sekulow left out some key points, which Wallace and others were only too happy to raise: Trump later told NBC's Lester Holt that he had already made up his mind to fire Comey regardless of the recommendation from Sessions and that he was firing him because he was unhappy with the Russian Federation investigation.

Mueller, the special counsel named by the Justice Department to probe the Russia matter, is investigating whether anyone associated with Trump or his campaign had any illegal dealings with Russian officials or others with ties to the Kremlin.

Comey was sacked in May after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein wrote a memo critical of Comey's handling of Hillary Clinton's email investigation, a memo that became Donald Trump's official rationale for firing Comey. The tweet in question was the last of four tweets Trump sent out about the investigation.

"The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to The Washington Post", Sekulow told NBC television's "Meet the Press". While Mensch has reported some aspects of the Russian Federation investigations before they reached more mainstream media, she has also published many other aspects yet to be verified and others that turned out to be false.

"If we want to put all this behind us, let's find out what happened, put it out there, and let's not undermine the credibility of the investigation, and so my view on it is that is the best thing that could happen for the president and for the country", he told CNN.

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed.

Not surprisingly, most of the hosts interviewing Sekulow on Sunday morning started by taking the president at his word that he is "being investigated".

And Senate intelligence committee member Sen.

While aides have advised Trump to stay off Twitter, the president continued to weigh in Sunday as he spent the weekend at Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat in Maryland.

Deputy AG says he may have to recuse himself from Russian Federation probe
Pence hired Richard Cullen, chairman of law firm McGuireWoods, to help him respond to inquiries from Mueller, a spokesman said. Mueller's investigation appeared to be reaching a broadening circle of current and former officials.

For example, former Republican Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich accused Mueller of hiring Democratic political donors and called Mueller the "tip of the deep state spear", a conspiracy theory reference.
