President Trump’s lawyer doubled down on reports that Trump is not under investigation during an interview with NBC’s Meet The Press, CBS’ Face The Nation, and CNN’s State Of The Union on Sunday.
Jay Sekulow said despite his tweets, the President is not personally being investigated for obstruction of justice or Russia collusion.
Check it out (per The Daily Caller):“There is not an investigation of the President of the United States. Period,” Sekulow told NBC host Chuck Todd.
Sekulow said the President’s tweets are merely a response to what he sees in the press.
Sekulow brushed off the president’s tweet, which read, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.”
The tweet “was in response to the Washington Post,” who reported that Trump was being investigated for obstruction of justice, Sekulow argued on “Face the Nation.”“That tweet takes maybe 15 seconds…he’s responding to what he sees in the media in a way that he thinks is appropriate to reach the people who put him in office,” he confirmed on “Meet the Press.”
