President Trump's Lawyer: He's Not Under Investigation for Obstruction of Justice

"He constantly pushes legislation that would take away our ability to defend ourselves against a madman".

"The real problem here is the Russians aren't going away".

The Senate intelligence committee is in the early stages of its probe and is looking at whether anyone involved in the campaign shared information with the Russians, said Senator Angus King of ME, an independent who caucuses with Democrats. No such conclusion has been reached.

Trump's fledgling presidency has been battered by allegations - being dissected both by Congress and the Federal Bureau of Investigation - that Russian Federation interfered to sway the 2016 election in his favour, in possible collusion with the former real estate magnate's campaign team. How could any prosecutor fail to pursue this line of inquiry?

On Sunday, "Face the Nation" sat down with Jay Sekulow, a member of Mr. Trump's personal legal team and chief counsel at the American Center for Law and Justice.

Now that the lists have been revealed, Vegas has the opportunity to conduct talks with free agents, restricted and unrestricted. It certainly relived a lot of the pressure thinking I had to get him moved so we wouldnt get in a jam here for our list.”.

Those very public actions and statements alone cry out for investigation.

He continued, "Let me be clear here, as it has since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction".

"Bob Mueller's investigation is only getting started", said Schiff.

In a combative and testy exchange on "Fox News Sunday", Sekulow acknowledged he could not know for sure that Mueller has not opened an investigation, but said he had no reason to believe he had. Apparently, none of the officials complied with these requests.

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped conversations. Please visit the original post to view it. Perhaps it does to Mueller as well. President Donald Trump’s closest allies are attacking the integrity of those involved in the widening probe of Russian interference in the USA election, accusing special counsel Mueller of driving a biased investigation. Russian officials have denied meddling in the U.S. election. That is why investigators want to know more about a meeting between Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and executives of Vnesheconombank, a Russian state-owned development bank now under USA sanctions. All he seems to be saying, really, is that Trump hasn't received formal notice that Mueller's looking at him.

USA president not under investigation for obstruction: His attorney
There have been multiple news reports and a tweet from Trump himself on Friday that began with: "I am being investigated". The post Trump tweets his frustration with Russian Federation investigation appeared first on PBS NewsHour .

Mueller's hires have experience in complicated investigations, including Watergate, Enron and Mafia prosecutions.

"They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story".

"Nothing has changed" since Comey informed the president that he was not being personally investigated, he said. The last reference appeared to be a comparison to Trump's predecessor, former President Barack Obama, whose own favorability ratings were often below 50 percent, although he left office in January with a 59 to 37 percent favorable-to-unfavorable standing.

But it is not. But because none of those positions have been filled by Senate-confirmed people, the job would fall to the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia. We need to know what happened so that we can ensure it never happens again.

The president does have the legal right to halt the kind of investigation that the FBI was conducting in the Flynn matter.
