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. The White House used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, but Trump's firing of Comey may now be part of the probe.
A slight majority (52 percent) disapproved of President Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey, but only 22 percent approved, with 24 percent refraining from giving an opinion.
Asked about the possibility that an investigation has since developed and the president just does not know, Sekulow said: "I can't read people's minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there's an investigation to the president of the United States".
The California Democrat also accused President Trump and his allies of waging a "scorched earth" campaign against special counsel Robert Mueller, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director who was appointed to head the Russian Federation probe last month.
U.S. confirms high-level visit to N. Korea behind student's release
There had been only one reported consular visit with Warmbier from Swedish diplomats in March 2016. "Thank God", they told CNN. Rodman talked to a women's basketball team at a gym Wednesday and visited the birthplace of North Korean founder Kim Il Sung.
The Post story cited five people briefed on the interview requests, who said that the current director of national intelligence, Daniel Coats, head of the National Security Agency, Mike Rogers, and Rogers's recently departed deputy, Richard Ledgett, agreed to be interviewed by Mueller's investigators.
After the Fox News anchor pressed Sekulow over whether Trump was going to fire deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein and Mueller, Sekulow attempted to end the line of questioning. "I can't go into the particulars of our closed investigation". "The president takes action based on numerous events, including recommendations from his attorney general and the deputy attorney general's office".
When Wallace noted that he had said the president is being investigated by the Justice Department, Sekulow quickly backtracked.
During an appearance on NBC "Meet the Press", Sekulow said plainly that Trump was not under investigation, directly contradicting a tweet from the president last week. "If in fact it's correct that the president is being investigated, he's being investigated for taking an action that an agency told him to take".

Referring to an instantly infamous tweet the president sent days ago in which he said he was "being investigated", Sekulow added, "The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking information to the Washington Post".
"Nothing has changed" since Comey informed the president that he was not being personally investigated, he said. "That's the constitutional threshold issue", Sekulow said. King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over". He said he had only been discussing the constitutional problem posed if the president were being investigated. "We're agreed, then", Wallace said.
"You don't know", the Fox News host exasperatedly noted.
Sekulow, however, said his legal team had not received notice of any investigation. "And the president [has] a very effective utilization of social media".
