Trump's lawyer denies he's being investigated

"No Chris, I said that the inve-any...let me be crystal clear so you completely understand".

Jay Sekulow, a new addition to President Donald Trump's legal team, faced tough questioning on CNN on Monday morning after a weekend of heated exchanges with cable-news hosts over whether Trump was a subject of the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Should Rosenstein decide to recuse himself, Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand would take over for him as far as having authority over the special counsel, whether it continues to be Mueller or not.

"The president is not under investigation by the special counsel", Sekulow said on NBC.

Wallace noted that the "tape will speak for itself".

As previously represented by President Donald J. Trump, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, in his sworn testimony before a congressional committee, indicated that the president was not the subject of any Federal Bureau of Investigation probe.

Mueller, the FBI director before Comey, has not released any details on the investigation. (In fact, I had a positive experience dealing with Mike Flynn when he was a colleague as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency at the beginning of my term at Federal Bureau of Investigation.) I did not say I would "let this go".

Meanwhile, Spicer also indicated Monday that Trump still had confidence in Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who according to an ABC News report last week, had privately admitted to colleagues that he may have to recuse himself from the ongoing federal Russian Federation probe.

But since the tweet, Trump has repeatedly refused to confirm or deny whether those tapes exist.

It's too early to say for sure what legal strategy his team will settle on, especially since the full contours of the probe aren't known and no public allegations have been leveled by investigators. "What we know is that James Comey, when he testified, confirmed that he told the president on three separate occasions he was not under investigation regarding this Russian probe".

In a two-part tweet posted before 7 a.m. Sunday, Trump wrote: "The MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN agenda is doing very well despite the distraction of the Witch Hunt". There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation. "If President Trump were to try to replicate Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre by firing Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein in addition to Mueller, Congress must unite to stop him", he said.

Last week, Trump sent a tweet referring to being the victim of a "witch hunt".

Kushner is in the spotlight over alleged discussions with Russia's ambassador in December, during which he reportedly discussed setting up a secret communication channel between the Trump administration and Moscow.

Sekulow says that Trump hasn't been notified of any investigation. "He's been a fighter his whole life", former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said on ABC's "This Week". Maybe the end of the year.

What has been reported about whether Trump is under investigation? Comey has since said he suspects the circumstances of his firing will be scrutinized by Mueller, putting pressure on Trump's supporters to deny any illegal intent - critical to an obstruction of justice case.

"He, from every pronouncement we have seen, feels very strongly that he did nothing wrong, and he wants people to say that, because he feels very strongly about it", Rubio said.
