Trump lawyer defends his use of social media

"The president is not a subject or target of investigation", said Trump legal team member, Jay Sekulow, in an interview. The Washington Post says he is, and their evidence seems pretty strong.

The Post reported that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was looking into whether the president obstructed justice. The reasons behind Trump's annoyance with the special counsel investigation are entirely political: He's hypersensitive to questions surrounding his legitimacy, he chafes at the idea that his authority could be questioned, and he mocks the entire Russian Federation investigation as Democratic sour grapes.

Then, Sekulow continued, Trump took their recommendations to remove Comey, and "now according to The Washington Post's theory, he's under investigation for taking the action that the Department of Justice told him to take".

Trump refers to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the man leading the federal investigation.

When he held the position of Federal Bureau of Investigation director, Comey was obliged to report to his immediate superior, the attorney general, Sessions, who in turn was obliged to report to the president. The Trump administration used a memo written by Rosenstein to justify Comey's firing, an act that Trump says is now under investigation. "That means there should exist on some server somewhere in the White House, a very thorough record of the kind of phone calls that nay investigator of the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's ties to Russian Federation any obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of those ties, should be able to access", Perlstein said. Russian officials have denied meddling in the USA election.

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?

During his exchange with anchor Chris Wallace, Jay Sekulow twice complained about Trump being under investigation, then clarified that expressing frustration about Trump being under investigation does not amount to a concession that the president actually is being investigated.although he might be.

Mueller, it was reported late Friday, has added at least 13 lawyers to the team investigating president.

The poster has generated huge anticipation amongst the audiences awaiting the trailer which is all set to release tomorrow. The film stars the 'Chacha-Bhatija' duo of Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, where Arjun will be seen in double role.

In a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee that followed, Comey addressed Trump's tweet saying, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes". "Mueller's going to do his job".

"The president wants to take down Bob Mueller ... and the question is why". "They're essentially engaging in a scorched-earth litigation strategy that is beginning with trying to discredit the prosecutor".

Law enforcement sources have told CNN that the special counsel is gathering information and considering whether there is evidence to launch a full scale obstruction investigation.

As the investigation does move forward, there's been a tip from the deputy attorney general. I don't think that tweet helped him. Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday in a statement. In some ways, I wish President Trump had done the same.

The panel sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday. And that mild statement, vigorously denied by Trump himself, and uncorroborated by any third party, is apparently most of what a charge of obstruction would be based on - that, plus the fact that Trump fired Comey. What we know is what James Comey said, the last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over".

"You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history - led by some very bad and conflicted people!"
