Trump decries 'witch hunt' even as lawyer insists no probe

One of Donald Trump's lawyers insisted Sunday that the president was not under criminal investigation as part of the sweeping probe into Russia's alleged meddling in American elections, despite the United States leader's tweets angrily calling the whole saga a "distraction".

However, also Sunday, Trump's personal lawyer, Jay Sekulow said there was no investigation of Trump and the president's tweet was only referring to the Post story.

"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.

"Witch hunt" has become Trump's preferred phrase to dismiss the probe into Russian election interference. 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.

The airplanes, including 737 MAX 10 and 737 MAX 8 airplanes, are valued at approximately $2.5 billion at current list prices. Boeing will this week show off a 737 Max-9, which has struggled to attract customers.

A lawyer for President Donald Trump said he is not under investigation, even though the president himself said he was.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), have discouraged him from tweeting about the investigations and potentially hurting his case, Sekulow defended Trump as an effective communicator on Twitter.

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential race, adding that the president has not received any notification that he is being investigated.

US President Donald Trump is not facing any probe for obstruction of justice, a member of his legal team said on Sunday, contradicting Mr Trump's own assertion that he was under investigation for firing former FBI director James Comey and being the target of a "witch hunt". While Mensch has reported some aspects of the Russian Federation investigations before they reached more mainstream media, she has also published many other aspects yet to be verified and others that turned out to be false.

From that point, Pakistan changed gears scoring 33 runs in the next two overs with Jadeja and Ashwin leaking 16 and 17 runs. Amir was the man doing the damage, Pakistan's talisman taking three wickets to rip out India's top order.

On Friday morning, President Trump sent a tweet that seemed to confirm that he was under scrutiny, writing, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" The California congressman said that the president and his associates are engaged in a scorched earth litigation strategy that begins with discrediting Mueller. "And as far as that goes, I'd say we're 20 percent into it", he said.

Rep. Adam Schiff says he wants the White House to acknowledge the tapes or make clear there are no tapes and "it was an idle threat".

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.

"This is a very complex matter, involving thousands of pages of intelligence documents, lots of witnesses". Schiff spoke on ABC's "This Week" and King spoke on NBC.

U.S. says it downed Syrian warplane that attacked US-backed fighters
Trump also bombed Bashar al-Assad's forces in April in retaliation for a Sarin gas attack widely blamed on the regime. This was the first time the USA resorted to engaging in air-to-air combat to make good on that promise.
