Trump lawyer defends his use of social media

But the last time Comey assured Trump of that was March 30, and, as he acknowledged repeatedly in his testimony, he was always aware that could change. Why would the president object to a thorough investigation - unless he had something to hide?

"But just because you haven't been notified doesn't mean you're not under investigation", Cuomo shot back.

Sekulow is so certain that Trump is under investigation that even when he's trying to do damage control over two Freudian slips that confirm Trump is under investigation, Sekulow releases another Freudian slip, beginning to reference the inves...never mind...

Last Wednesday, The Washington Post reported the special counsel was investigating the President for obstruction of justice over his firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

America is edging ever closer to a new long, national nightmare, given President Donald Trump's explosive response to signs that special counsel Robert Mueller is approaching the epicenter of White House power. But ThePost reported that Coats had told associates Trump had asked him to intervene with Comey when he was still FBI Director, to take the heat off former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, and that Trump had asked Coats and Rogers to publicly deny any evidence of collusion between Trump associates and Russian Federation during the 2016 election.

Now Mueller faces a huge decision.

But the more frustrated that Trump gets, the more he often hurts himself politically. The source said investigators have sought information from Richard Ledgett, who recently retired as deputy NSA director and, the source said, had written a memo documenting an attempt from Trump urging Rogers to tamp down on the FBI's Russian Federation investigation.

Republicans say they are turning down offers to work for a chief executive whose volatile temperament makes them nervous, and are asking headhunters if their reputations could suffer permanent damage from serving Trump.

A member of President Donald Trump's outside legal team is defending Trump's use of social media.

Act III of this play concluded this morning-as Trump woke up and plugged Sekulow's latest appearance on state-run media before having some second thoughts.

"No one's notified us that he is [under investigation]", SSekulow told Wallace.

Wallace grilled him on the contradictions in his statements but the lawyer insisted he was being clear Trump was not under investigation.

"The president of the United States takes action after receiving a memorandum from his attorney general, a letter actually from his attorney general and memorandum from his deputy attorney general", Sekulow told Fox News' "Fox & Friends" program. If there is an investigation of the circumstances of Comey's firing, and the Deputy Attorney General (who is serving as Acting AG for the investigation due to Jeff Sessions' recusal) was instrumental in the firing, that sure looks like a conflict, Turley says. The lessons of history suggest such traumas raise questions of political legitimacy and constitutional process that have the potential to sour life in Washington for years in the future. The special counsel's office did not respond to a request for comment on the report.
