Donald Trump's attorney says president not under investigation in Russia probe

U.S. President Donald Trump is not under investigation by the prosecutor probing Russian meddling in last year's election and his possible obstruction of justice, one of his lawyers said Sunday, contradicting Trump's own tweet acknowledging the probe.

Trump on Friday said on Twitter that "I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

US President Donald Trump walks to the White House in Washington, US following his arrival from Camp David June 18, 2017.

But Sekulow said that Trump was reacting to a Washington Post story that said special counsel Robert Mueller was examining whether Trump had tried to obstruct the probe by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in May.

The denial Sunday by Jay Sekulow, one of several personal lawyers Trump has hired to represent him in the Russian Federation case, is the latest of many examples in which the president's aides and lawyers have scrambled to avert a public-relations mess created by Trump's tweets, off-script remarks or leaked private conversations. Sekulow said he "can't imagine" a scenario where the president would be under investigation and not know about it.

Russian Federation 2-0 New Zealand: Hosts win Confederations Cup Group A opener
Russia , a record low 63rd in FIFA's world rankings, face Portugal on Wednesday while New Zealand play Mexico the same day. Smolov had an effort ruled out for offside before the opening goal arrived just after the half-hour mark.

An attorney for President Trump says Trump is not under investigation for obstruction of justice. But Trump later acknowledged that he had already made up his mind to fire Comey before receiving the Rosenstein recommendation and that he dismissed Comey because of "this Russia thing", believing that the probe of Russian interference in the election was an excuse being used by Democrats to explain Clinton's stunning upset loss.

But the President is yet to heed that advice, tweeting on Sunday: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

Sekulow appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press", CNN's "State of the Union", CBS's "Face the Nation" and "Fox News Sunday" on Fox. The president has directed some of his frustration at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and Mueller. The subjects of the investigation only find out if charges are filed and they get a subpoena. "I think you're reading more into the tweet than what's there".

According to CNN, the Independent Counsel Act expired after Special Counsel Ken Starr conducted a dissertation-length investigation of former President Bill Clinton.

"They want to lay the foundation to discredit whatever Bob Mueller comes up with", Schiff said on ABC.

He celebrated with an extravagant twirl of his bat and kissed the turf as the Pakistan supporters sensed an unlikely win. Hasan Ali was responsible for taking the last Indian wicket , leaving the Blue Shirts with 158 runs from 30.3 overs.

While the former Alabama senator is more than qualified for the post, the fact that he felt compelled by Justice rules to recuse himself from any investigation related to the 2016 campaign because he was a key Trump supporter set in motion a series of disastrous events. "There is no investigation", Sekulow added.

Reports have raised questions about whether Trump requested their help in trying to get James Comey, then the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, to end an inquiry into Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Mr Trump's aides have reportedly asked him to stay off Twitter and focus on other aspects of his job. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), a senior member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees known for being measured and reserved, released a fiery statement Friday. "This is a very complex matter involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents and lots of witnesses".

Moreover, the Republican commander in chief appeared to confirm the Post's report in another tweet.
