Trump Attorney denies Rumors of Trump under Investigation

Trump Attorney denies Rumors of Trump under Investigation

A member of President Donald Trump's outside legal team says the president is not under investigation, contradicting a recent tweet from Trump.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, a Democrat on the committee, said Monday on CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" that "obstruction of justice has to be included" in the investigation, and critiqued Jay Sekulow, a lawyer for Trump who has dismissed the idea the President could have obstructed justice by firing Comey. The denial comes days after Trump appeared to confirm he is being investigated, sending a tweet complaining that he is the target of a "witch hunt".

On June 9, Trump promised to discuss the possible existence of tapes of his conversations with Comey in the very near future.

Sekulow downplayed Trump's tweets, saying the president is simply responding to what he sees in the media in a way that can reach millions of his supporters.

"You don't mess with the criminal justice system in this way ... the President is on very tenuous ground here", Ben-Veniste told CNN's Don Lemon Friday.

Meanwhile, despite growing concerns that the president may fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel running the Russian Federation probe, Sen. Mueller was also a partner at the firm, and he resigned from his position after he was chosen as special counsel in the FBI's Russian Federation probe. Press secretary Sean Spicer denied it was a travel "ban"; Trump tweeted it was a ban.

Over the weekend, Sekulow declared that Trump is not under investigation, after the president condemned the investigation as a "witch hunt" through a series of tweets.

On Sunday, however, Sekulow struggled on what should have been his easiest appearance, telling Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace that Trump was being investigated "by the Department of Justice" then flatly denying he had said so.

Trump's first full Cabinet meetings are ringing loudly across the political internet as a new age King Lear livestream, a sycophancy competition where grown men and women, billionaires and four star generals fawned on the leader "who's keeping his word to the American people" while the cameras whirred. "There is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".

Finally, we know that Muellers investigators are also looking for “any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, ” as the Post phrased it. He has no idea whether Trump is or isn't under investigation by special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

Friday is the deadline set by the House Intelligence Committee for the White House to produce "any White House recordings or memoranda of Comey's conversations with President Trump (that) now exist or have in the past".

Schiff said he wants the White House to acknowledge the tapes or make clear there are no tapes and "it was an idle threat". Mueller's office has taken up that work, and the preliminary interviews scheduled with intelligence officials indicate that his team is actively pursuing potential witnesses inside and outside the government.

It's unclear where that process stands. He said it could be done "maybe by the end of the year". The source said investigators have sought information from Richard Ledgett, who recently retired as deputy NSA director and, the source said, had written a memo documenting an attempt from Trump urging Rogers to tamp down on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.
