Trump Lawyer: He’s Not Being Investigated, Period

The Hill reports:

One of President Trump’s attorneys on Sunday insisted “there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period.” He was responding to reports that a Justice Department investigation has expanded to obstruction of justice charges related to the president’s decision to fire an FBI director, as well as apparent confirmation by the president himself.

“Let me be clear here,” said Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction.” According to Sekulow, the president’s tweet should not be taken as confirmation he’s under investigation.

“The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post,” he said. “He’s not afraid of the investigation — there is no investigation,” Sekulow added.
