Sekulow said that Trump's comment was specifically in response to a Washington Post story, quoting unnamed sources familiar with the Mueller investigation, as saying that Mueller was probing whether Trump obstructed justice in firing Comey.

A day later, Mr. Trump said in a tweet, "I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!" He is now, according to the Washington Post, being investigated by the same department who told him to take that action. "That's the constitutional threshold issue". "There is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period".

"He's not being investigated!" he exclaimed.

"This is the first time the president's overall approval rating has hit the 50% mark since late April", the site states. "But it would be the worst form of negligence to our republic for us to say we're going to close the investigation before we can determine whether there is merit to these allegations".

Special counsel investigations have a way of turning into fishing expeditions, as Bill and Hillary Clinton know too well.

In an appearance on CBS' "Face the Nation," Sekulow sought to clarify the hypothetical legal scenario he presented on the Fox News program.

Schiff also said he believes recent congressional testimony from Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions points to signs of possible obstruction by Trump that warrant further investigation.

La nota dice que "un estilo arrogante en el trato con Cuba no tiene futuro, como han demostrado los acontecimientos del último medio siglo" y reafirma la "inquebrantable solidaridad" de Moscú con La Habana.

"It's impossible", Sekulow continued.

Wallace then asked if Trump believes the law allows for a president to be indicted.

Attorney Jay Sekulow is part of President Donald Trump's legal team, and on Sunday he was given the unenviable task of defending the administration's contradictory and constantly evolving opinion on the commander-in-chief's legal standing. The FBI was prepared to cast a wide net-and now that the investigation is being headed by a special counsel, there are no limits to how wide it will be. The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report.

Rasmussen said Friday its daily presidential tracking poll that 50% of likely US voters approve of Trump's job performance, while the other 50% disapprove.

When Todd pressed, asking if people are "not to take [Trump] at his word", Sekulow maintained that the president was responding to the Washington Post story reporting that he was being investigated for obstruction of justice by Mueller as part of the Russian Federation probe.

He said Trump's tweet was based only on The Washington Post report. "I mean, he's been a fighter his whole life".

"There should be no confusion", Sekulow added.

But the potential arrival of Ronaldo would undermine that message, and could give Morata cause to reconsider his options this summer.

"The president himself said he was going to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director regardless of whatever the deputy attorney general or the attorney general said".

"The special counsel happens to be a close friend of Comey, which is weird", Gingrich said on This Week.

Mueller, the FBI director before Comey, has not released any details on the investigation.

The order from the general counsel for the transition team casts a wide net on documents that could shed light on ties between Trump's presidential campaign and representatives of Russia's government. Even Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who as a US senator was Trump's strongest supporter-and for a time, virtually his only one-among top-ranking elected officials, is reportedly on thin ice with the president, who is angry that Sessions recused himself from overseeing the investigation and didn't defend the president strongly enough (or press his enemies hard enough) when he testified to Congress to last week.

Dianne Feinstein, top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said she was "increasingly concerned" that Trump will fire both Mueller and Rosenstein.

Sekulow stressed repeatedly that Trump is not under investigation. It was a tactic that earned him incredulous pushback from his interviewers, all of whom pointed to Trump's own tweets.

"It was 141 characters".

As for Trump's repeated criticism of the "witch hunt" against him, Sekulow told NBC's Meet The Press: "He's not afraid of the investigation". He said Trump had learned the effectiveness of social media as a communications tool during the campaign.
