Trump attorney: President is not under investigation

Representatives for President Trump's son-in-law have reached out to these attorneys because Kushner's allies have been questioning the connection between Kushner's current lawyer and Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the report said.

A member of President Trump's legal team told NBC, Sunday that Trump is not under any form of investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller.

On Sunday, it was lawyer Jay Sekulow's turn to try to redefine what a president's words mean.

Donald Trump's attorney repeatedly denied the president is under investigation before saying twice "he's being investigated" and then denying he said it moments earlier during a contentious interview on "Fox News Sunday".

"He's not afraid of the investigation".

(Sekulow) "Let me be crystal clear so you understand. #MAGA." Trump said in a tweet last week that signified an attempt to undermine both men.

Years before Twitter, the nation tittered at President Bill Clinton's response on whether a prior denial of a sexual relationship with Monica Lewinsky was a lie. His statement, however, contradicts Trump's tweet that it was Mueller who recommended Comey's dismissal.

Meanwhile, despite growing concerns that the president may fire Robert Mueller, the special counsel running the Russian Federation probe, Sen. 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. "The best thing that could happen for the president, and the country, is a full and credible investigation". "That's it. Simple explanation", Sekulow told CNN's "State of the Union". He said Trump's tweet was not a confirmation of the investigation, but instead a response to a report in The Washington Post.

A source familiar with the Mueller probe said on Thursday that investigators would have to gather a large amount of evidence before an interview with the president would be warranted.

Schiff also said he believes recent congressional testimony from Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions points to signs of possible obstruction by Trump that warrant further investigation.

Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a "witch hunt".

Sessions' decision to step aside, which Trump opposed, made Rosenstein acting attorney general for purposes of the probe into whether the campaign colluded with Russian Federation.

"My question is this, do you think that Bob Mueller is looking at the circumstances surrounding Comey's firing?"

This is, however, a tough sell, in part because multiple major news organizations have confirmed that the president is in fact being investigated for obstruction of justice, and in part because of phrases such as "I am being investigated" and "He's being investigated" don't lend themselves to nuanced interpretations. "You just said, sir, you just said that he's being investigated".

"This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses".
