Attorney: Trump not under investigation

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said on Sunday (June 18) that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential race, a statement that appeared to contradict a comment Trump himself made on Twitter last week. The White House has used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, but that Trump action may now be part of the probe. The president evidently faces trouble not just with one or two officials he can fire, but from the Justice Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation more widely.

Earlier on Friday, Trump said he was being investigated for firing former FBI Director James Comey.

The source familiar with the Mueller probe told Reuters that Mueller was also examining whether Trump or others tried to interfere with the investigation.

Mueller, a decorated Marine Corps veteran, has a sterling reputation as an independent investigator.

Peter Carr, a spokesman for the Mueller team, declined to comment.

He returned to Washington Sunday amid new questions about the Russian Federation investigation.

But America's laws today are a web in which even the most innocuous citizen can get tangled-a citizen who has business dealings with figures as corrupt as many Russian businessmen and officials tend to be is nearly certainly open to prosecution on one technicality or another, as is anyone who talks to federal investigators and tells even the smallest of lies.

"The biggest risks in these kinds of cases are the collateral offenses", said Jonathan Turley, a legal professor at George Washington University.

Wallace then asked if Trump believes the law allows for a president to be indicted. "He has no qualms about throwing [Rosenstein] under a bus".

I have my doubts as to whether firing Mueller is the prudent move for Trump.

A point that seem to escape the grasp of Wallace, who became confrontational with Sekulow. And, also, does Trump think Rosenstein did anything wrong?

"He's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and the deputy attorney general recommended him to take, by the agency that recommended he take the action", he told host Chris Wallace.

Again, the legal community is split here. Marco Rubio said Sunday he should welcome the investigation. I mean, just think about this for a minute.

According to former-Director Comey's testimony to Senate, he believes his firing to have been motivated by the Russian Federation investigation. "Ultimately, whether he believes it or not, the work's going to move forward", he added.

Comey famously rushed to the bedside of a hospitalized Ashcroft to talk him out of reauthorizing the program. Now he has these two memorandums from his attorney general and his deputy attorney general.

Both threatened to resign the next day. The president fired back over Twitter and at a news conference, claiming that some of the things Comey said weren't true.

It worked. Rosenstein appointed Mueller.

Sekulow said he didn't read minds but he understood what Wallace was attempting to do. "I would not have recommended him for this one".

Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee he believes Trump fired him because he resisted the president's request to drop the Russian Federation investigation, especially as it pertained to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. "Nearly everybody else does" other than Trump, he said. "It's inconceivable he's not under investigation in the obstruction investigation", the lawyer said.

Barr, the former attorney general, said the media stories were overblown. "This issue will be addressed in due course and I suspect next week".

"I can't imagine a scenario where the president would not be aware of it", Sekulow said on CBS.

"They want to lay the foundation to discredit whatever Bob Mueller comes up with", Schiff said. "That's not in anyone's interests and will only undermine public confidence".
