Trump's Legal Plan Built in His Image: Fight, Fight, Fight

Dem Rep Schiff: No 'Proof' Of Trump-Russia Collusion Trump lawyer says president not informed he is under investigation
Delores Daniels | 21 Июня, 2017, 07:10

Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said Sunday the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election is just beginning while Sen.

SEKULOW: Well, look, I - I can't imagine the scenario where the president would - would not be aware of it. "The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report".

Jamie Gorelick, Kushner's current lawyer, works at WilmerHale - the same firm Mueller worked at before Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein appointed Mueller as special counsel. He said a Friday tweet from Trump was specifically directed at a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia's election meddling.

After the report was published, the President subsequently acknowledged in a tweet, "I am being investigated".

This weekend, it produced some of the more excruciating news coverage in recent memory as one of his lawyers, Jay Sekulow, was tendentiously grilled on the question of whether the president has conceded that he is under investigation.

"That's incorrect", Sekulow responded.

"What we know is that James Comey, when he testified, confirmed that he told the president on three separate occasions he was not under investigation regarding this Russian probe".

Conway on Monday told Fox & Friends that nobody has told Trump that he's under investigation, and instead, Trump's tweet last week was a response to "a Washington Post report that included five anonymous sources. I don't think it serves him well", former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a Trump supporter, on ABC's "This Week", adding that the President was right to be infuriated by "this whole Russian Federation baloney". His tweet about a "WITCH HUNT" conducted by "bad" people is just a Trumpian version of what appears to be the official White House line - that this is somehow a partisan attempt to delegitimize the Trump presidency. Donald Trump's lawyer is still falsely arguing that the DOJ doesn't have the right to investigate the President, if that gives you a sense of what he's bringing to the table for President Trump.

"The man" the President was referring to is Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein, who authored a scathing critique of the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director's handling of the Clinton email case.

"I don't believe it's going to happen", said Rubio on CNN's "State of the Union".

"There's a limitation on Twitter, as we all know", Sekulow said.

Also on Sunday, Sekulow appeared on CNN's Face The Nation and apparently confused host Jake Tapper so much that BuzzFeed wrote a story based on nine screenshots of Tapper looking perplexed during the interview.

That means that the judiciary panel could be the main body in Congress to investigate whether Trump improperly used his authority to urge Comey to back off an investigation of his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

As for the issue of that other interesting tweet, where the President implied he has tapes of his meetings with various people in which he discusses not being under investigation: "This issue will be addressed in due course and I suspect next week".
