President Trump not under investigation in Russia probe, says his lawyer

Sekulow said that Trump, in his tweet, was reacting to a story in the Washington Post that was the first to report Mueller was examining whether Trump had tried to obstruct the probe by firing Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in May.

On Sunday morning, Jay Sekulow, a member of President Donald Trump's personal legal team, appeared on CNN's "State of the Union", where he was interviewed by Jake Tapper.

"The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post", he said, referring to the Post's report this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the election, now also includes a look at whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice. Trump was merely restating what the Post and other media had reported, Sekulow suggested. Pressed by Wallace to account for the apparent contradiction, a clearly upset Sekulow subsequently accused Wallace of "putting words in my mouth", and insisted again, "Let me be crystal clear so you completely understand: We have not received, nor are we aware of any investigation of the president of the United States. We're going to get the full truth out there", he said.

If the question is, did President Trump act to impede or end a legitimate investigation for the purposes of protecting himself or his friends I think his goose is probably close to cooked. As far as I can see, the real question isn't factual but rather constitutional. "Nearly everybody else does" other than Trump, he said.

Sekulow says that Trump hasn't been notified of any investigation.

He blamed the confusion over Twitter's 140-character limit.

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

They went a few more rounds before Tapper wondered, "is that not frustrating for you as an attorney to have a client that is sharing information with the world that's not accurate?"

Yet Trump's tweets in recent days condemning the actions of his own Justice Department have reached an intense level, revealing the president's increasing agitation about the probe and the attention it has drawn.

"Witch Hunt." It was the first time Trump had publicly acknowledged that he's under investigation.

Trump insists his campaign had nothing to do with Russian efforts to undermine credibility in the USA election.
