Trump attorney says president not under investigation

President Donald Trump´s personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential race, a statement that appeared to contradict a comment Trump himself made on Twitter last week.

Trump's statements on Twitter are a sign of his frustration with the Russian Federation allegations, said former Republican Speaker Newt Gingrich, on ABC's "This Week". "I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", Sekulow said."No one has notified us that he is" under investigation, Sekulow said.

Sekulow, however, emphasized that Trump was referring to the "fake" story in The Washington Post and denied that the tweet was an admission by the President that is being investigated. "We've had no indication of that".

"There has been no notification from the special counsel s office that the president is under investigation".

Donald Trump isn't under investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, a member of the president's legal team said, despite Trump's repeated comments that he's the target of a "witch hunt".

"Apparently, over and over again Trump is told privately you are not under investigation but nobody will officially admit it". But Trump later acknowledged that he had already made up his mind to fire Comey before receiving the Rosenstein recommendation and that he dismissed Comey because of "this Russia thing", believing that the probe of Russian interference in the election was an excuse being used by Democrats to explain Clinton's stunning upset loss.

Special counsel Robert Mueller hasn't decided whether to investigate President Trump as part of the Russian Federation probe, according to a report on Sunday. Kushner has been represented on business matters and other issues by Jamie Gorelick.

The New York Times first reported that Kushner was weighing other legal options.

"He's not afraid of the investigation - there is no investigation... there is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".

"If the president thinks he can fire Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein and replace him with someone who will shut down the investigation, he's in for a rude awakening", Senator Dianne Feinstein of California, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said Friday in a statement.

"The fact of the matter is the president has not been and is not under investigation", Sekulow said on CBS' "Face the Nation", one of four political shows where he appeared on Sunday.

Rep. Jim Himes, a Democratic member of the House Intelligence committee, says "we are a ways yet from being able to conclude anything" when it comes to his committee's investigation into Russia's actions in the 2016 election. The committee also sent a letter to Comey asking for any notes or memos.

"And if we can't get an answer, then I think we'll ultimately need to subpoena those potential documents to make sure that we have them". King said the "collusion, the cooperation aspect of the investigation is not over".
