Attorney: Trump not under investigation

Attorney: Trump not under investigation

"You've now said he is being investigated after saying" he isn't, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said.

Jay Sekulow, best known for his role as the head of TV preacher Pat Robertson's legal group, appeared on several Sunday shows in his capacity as a leading member of Trump's defense team.

Should Rosenstein decide to recuse himself, Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand would take over for him as far as having authority over the special counsel, whether it continues to be Mueller or not. King said on NBC the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over". "So I - I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there's an investigation to the president of the United States".

Sekulow responded that Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey does not amount to obstruction of justice, before sparring with Cuomo over leaks to the press. According to the Post, Mueller plans to interview both officials soon, and also plans to question Richard Ledgett, who until recently held the No. 2 job at the NSA.

Cuomo and Sekulow next got into the weeds about the conflict between the White House's contention that Trump fired Comey on the attorney general's recommendation, and the president's own remarks that he was going to fire Comey anyway.

His actions are being scrutinised as part of a wider investigation into whether Trump's team colluded with Russian Federation during last year's election campaign. You know Mueller is looking at this. I didn't say investigation...

Despite the reported discussions, his current legal team has not been changed, and Ms Gorelick has been preparing Kushner for a meeting with investigators from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

Were Trump's apparent confessions that he fired Comey to relieve the pressure he felt from the Russian Federation investigation enough to warrant a new investigation of Trump for obstruction of justice?

David Griffin's run with the Cleveland Cavaliers is over after one championship and three straight trips to the NBA Finals. Lonzo Ball of UCLA is expected to go No. 2 to the Lakers, although the sides have yet to reach agreement on a deal.

Former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally, said the president's tweet seemingly acknowledging that he's under investigation wasn't helpful.

"Well, I will tell you about that, sometime in the very near future", Trump sidestepped when a reporter directly asked him, during a Rose Garden news conference, whether the tapes actually exist. As Trump still struggles to acknowledge, the US intelligence community is fully convinced that Russian Federation carried out an attack on our democracy.

And whether or not Trump made the tapes is a huge deal for his presidency.

"And the fact that the president can fire someone for good cause, or can fire someone with no cause, doesn't mean that he can fire someone for malicious cause". So technically, Trump is correct: The man who wrote the memo endorsing Comey's removal has authorized an investigation that is reportedly probing whether that removal somehow constituted a felony.

Even so, White House Spokesman Sean Spicer said in a June 6 news conference that Trump's tweets should be considered "official statements".

"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".

Whether Trump himself is under investigation at this stage also is still unclear.

Himes says the notion the investigation has been going on too long "is just crazy" and "we're talking about the very core of our democracy here".
