Trump tweeted on Friday: "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"
Sen. Marco Rubio says it's best for the country to let the FBI's investigation into Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 presidential election take its course, and the Florida Republican tells CNN's "State of the Union" that's what he'd advise President Donald Trump.
"Let me be clear here, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction".
But Sekulowsaid repeatedly Sunday that "the president has not been and is not under investigation".
Sekulow: So 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 termination (of Comey)... "The president can not be investigated, certainly can not be found liable, for engaging in an activity he clearly has powers to do under the Constitution".
When Todd pressed, asking if people are "not to take [Trump] at his word", Sekulow maintained that the president was responding to the Washington Post story reporting that he was being investigated for obstruction of justice by Mueller as part of the Russian Federation probe. He said Trump's statement on Twitter Friday was specifically in response to a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.
Earlier on Friday, Trump said he was being investigated for firing former FBI Director James Comey.
A source familiar with the matter told CNN's Evan Perez that investigators for Mueller would speak with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers.
Rubio says: "If it involved working with Americans, whether wittingly or unwittingly, that needs to be part of" the investigation.
"So the president responds - I want to be crystal clear here".
Wallace: But you just said two times that he's being investigated. "The response from the president, using social media, was about that story", he said.
And it kept going on and on like this until finally Wallace figuratively threw his hands in the air, responding to Sekulow saying there's no investigation after saying he didn't know if there was one.
In an interview with MSNBC host Lester Holt last month, Trump said he had already decided he would fire Comey before hearing any recommendations from Justice Department officials.
Trump has denied making these comments, which Comey said he documented in contemporaneous memos.
By the Fox News Sunday leg of the morning, the wheels were coming off the wagon for Sekulow and the *non-investigation* investigation into Trump.
In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m. Sunday, Trump wrote: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt".
