United States president not under investigation for obstruction: His attorney

"The president's tweet was in response to The Washington Post story", Sekulow replied. "And the president has a very effective utilization of social media".

"The president is not under investigation by the special counsel", said Sekulow. Here is what you just said: The president made the decision before - let's assume for the sake of argument there was all kinds of decisions being discussed, but this crystalized that decision. In a special hearing, last week, Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee he believes Trump fired him because he resisted presidential requests to drop the Russian Federation investigation, especially as it pertained to Flynn, the former national security adviser. "We've had no indication of that", said Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice.

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking. "Given the fact that he was confirmed 94 to 6 and had overwhelming praise from both sides of the aisle, I think there's complete confidence in him".

Mr Trump's aides have reportedly asked him to stay off Twitter and focus on other aspects of his job. "And that determination is protected by the constitution".

Trump tweets his frustration with 'witch hunt' Russia investigation
President#Donald Trump confirmed that he is under investigation due to the dismissal of former FBI Director #James Comey . On Twitter Friday, Trump wrote as part of a tweet about the probe that "I am being investigated ".

And now his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, has made the weird claim that is is not Trump's actions which were potentially unconstitutional, but rather the investigation into those actions itself.

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking. He said the president "sought my advice and input" on Comey's firing.

Prince Harry Puts A Ring On Meghan Markle
The loved-up couple also wear matching beaded bracelets, which Harry reportedly brought back from a trip to Africa. The thought of Prince Harry giving Meghan Markle a gold diamond ring certainly ignited engagement rumors.

A source familiar with the Mueller probe said on Thursday that investigators would have to gather a large amount of evidence before an interview with the president would be warranted.

The order from the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government. The directive was sent by attorney Kory Langhofer, who represented the Trump campaign in the 2016 election.

"What's happening here is the president wants to take down Bob Mueller", Mr. Schiff said. "But you're his attorney". The attorney general was at a White House meeting when the notification came from Rosenstein, prompting the enraged President to scold the attorney general for the turn of events.

"It was 141 characters", Sekulow replied.

Kevin Durant: Warriors 'Work Extremely Well Together', Not Superteam
Fresh off their second championship in three years, the Golden State Warriors sound like they're ready to run it back ... again. In a series where the Cavaliers were outscored by 34 points, it is remarkable that LeBron recorded a plus/ minus of +20.

Representative Adam Schiff, Democrat of California, accused Trump and his allies of seeking to undermine Mueller's inquiry, setting a pretext for potentially firing those leading it. Trump has reportedly told friends that he considered firing Mueller, and the president's tweet Friday appeared aimed at Rosenstein, raising questions about whether he might fire him, too.
