Trump's Attorney: President To Address Comey Tapes This Week

Sekulow appeared on several political talk shows on Sunday to argue that contrary to the president's tweet, the Trump team did not know if the president was under investigation by Mueller. "If in fact it's correct that the president is being investigated, he's being investigated for taking an action that an agency told him to take.

Because the special counsel, under the special counsel regulations, reports still to the Department of Justice, not an independent counsel", Sekulow said.

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace grilled an attorney for President Donald Trump over the Russian Federation investigation and the president's seeming acknowledgement that he was under investigation for potential obstruction of justice by firing former FBI Director James Comey.

Including NBC's "Meet The Press" where a "confused" Chuck Todd also attempted to twist Sekulow's words, though not as confrontationally as Wallace did. "He's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and deputy attorney general recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the terminations!"

On Friday, Trump tweeted, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

The Warriors suiting up on Monday will be much different from the team at the same point in 2016. They were possibly the best team of all-time and certainly the best of the last 20 years.

"There was a lot of issues this past week", Sekulow said, citing the president's major address regarding Cuba and the shooting incident that injured House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and four others.

During an appearance on CBS's Face the Nation, host John Dickerson asked Sekulow about the tapes and if we'll see them anytime soon.

"That is impossible. The president cannot be investigated - or found liable - for actions taken he clearly has to do under the Constitution", he concluded.

"I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there's an investigation of the president of the United States". What we know is what James Comey said, the last thing we know is when he testified just a couple weeks back.

Wallace quipped that Sekulow seemed not to know whether the president was being probed or not.

Sekulow said he didn't read minds but he understood what Wallace was attempting to do.

But a former federal prosecutor, Brad Simon, told The Post those assertions were "somewhat fanciful".

Wallace: You just said that he's being investigated.

"No, Chris, I deal with fact and law", Sekulow said. "That's the the long-established practice of the Justice Department".
