Washington Lawyer: Trump is not under investigation, despite tweet

Trump referred to the "witch hunt" again in a series of tweets Sunday, saying in one missive that "the MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".

Comey told lawmakers earlier this month that Trump in recent months had asked for his personal loyalty, urged him to drop the investigation of the contacts the president's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, had with Russia's ambassador to Washington, and to "lift the cloud" of the Russian Federation investigation, none of which he acceded to. He said the tweet last Friday from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.

And on the question of whether President Trump taped his conversations with Comey - as Trump hinted he did - Sekulow said: "I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead". It's entirely possible Trump isn't under investigation for obstruction of justice, but at the same time it's equally possible that he is, as far as Sekulow is aware.

Sekulow, asked if President Trump meant it when he said he would testify under oath, said he hasn't discussed that with the president.

"So there can be no confusion. No confusion. The president is not under investigation", Sekulow said.

But the last over came down to six off five balls. "What happened to me was done by the police (who are on India's side)". Earlier, India skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and invited his Pakistani counterpart Sarfraz Ahmed to bat first.

Mueller was named as special counsel after Trump abruptly fired Comey, who up to his dismissal had been heading the Russian Federation probe into Moscow's alleged interference in the USA presidential election. "But I have not been notified".

Cohen said the first official communication that a target is under investigation typically comes when prosecutors begin requesting documents and other evidence.

Sekulow also appeared on "Face the Nation" where he continued to use the argument that Trump is not under investigation because they hadn't received any notice that he was.

"Trump has a compulsion to counter attack and is very pugnacious", Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week" on Sunday.

"He s not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation. there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".

Scalise upgraded to serious condition after more surgery
Sava said that after being released from the hospital, Scalise "will require a period of healing and rehabilitation". James Hodgkinson, who is from downstate IL , had a list of three Republican congressmen in his pocket.

A representative from President Donald Trump's legal team said Trump is not under investigation, despite the President tweeting "I am being investigated" this week.

His morning missive apparently referred to Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general whose role leading the federal investigation has become increasingly complicated. Those interviews, they allege, were to determine any connections between the Trump presidential campaign and Russian Federation.

Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, defended Mueller and his team, noting that lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have praised his appointment. Claims also arose that Trump asked the director of the National Security Agency to declare that he was not under investigation and asked the Director of National Intelligence to tell Comey to back off the Flynn investigation.

In the same interview, Rubio doubted the Senate would meet Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's goal to pass healthcare by the Fourth of July recess.

US Rep Scalise's condition upgraded to 'serious'
The American Hospital Association defines "critical" condition as: "Vital signs are unstable and not within normal limits". Bailey was spotted Friday in the Capitol , on crutches and out of uniform, accepting congratulations from fellow officers.

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.
