Lawyer says Trump not under investigation

Lawyer says Trump not under investigation

Sekulow added that Trump is "very effective" with his use of social media.

"I can say categorically that the collusion, the cooperation, aspect of the investigation is not over. There is no investigation".

"There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation", Sekulow said. Schiff said he wants the White House to acknowledge the tapes or make clear there are no tapes and "it was an idle threat". "That's impossible. The president cannot be investigated, or certainly cannot be found liable for engaging in an activity he clearly has power to do under the constitution". The president's lawyer noted that some Democrats called for Comey's dismissal because of the way he handled the email investigation into Democratic candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton.

About the president's tweet, he repeated that it was not a confirmation of an investigation: "The context of the tweet, I just gave you the legal theory, Chris, of how the Constitution works. Witch Hunt", had nothing to do with any official investigation into President Trump's activities.

ABC's "This Week": Former Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Douglas Lute, former US ambassador to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. I would say the answer is yes, for a number of reasons. Angus King, an independent from ME, stressed that the probe will likely last for a long time.

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.

Next, Sekulow appeared on "Meet the Press" with Chuck Todd (below). Lawmakers from both parties are anxious that Russian meddling in United States elections could continue, King said. "There's a lot of information yet to go".

Sekulow then blamed Twitter's 140 characters per tweet limit (which he identified incorrectly as 141 characters) for not allowing Trump to be more clear, although the president has tweeted multi-part statements before.

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.

Sekulow on Sunday also acknowledged that the president was "fully aware that if in fact he took this action, he would see a lengthening" of the amount of time it would take to get through the Russian Federation investigation if James Comey was removed as FBI director, but still made a decision to move forward with firing Comey because he "thought it was in the best interest of the American people".

Trump insists his campaign had nothing to do with Russian efforts to undermine credibility in the US election.
