Trump's tweets say he's under investigation-but his team disagrees

Fireworks exploded Sunday when Fox News anchor Chris Wallace grilled an attorney for President Donald Trump over whether or not the president is the subject of an FBI investigation. "But the president does utilize Twitter and social media platforms and, again, the situation on Friday that created the five anonymous sources".

"You say he can't be under investigation because I haven't been told, and that's a specious premise - you know there's no duty to tell you whether he's under investigation", Cuomo said.

Mueller is leading the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, while the House Intelligence Committee and several other panels are conducting their own probes into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. 'I am being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director!

On Fox News, on MSNBC, on CNN, and on CBS, Sekulow stumped for the Trump defense campaign, claiming that Trump was not under investigation and providing "constitutional legal theories" for Trump's behavior.

The Pentagon said a US F-15 aircraft, flying over Syrian territory, fired on the drone after it displayed hostile intent and advanced on coalition forces.

Some of Sekulow's exchanges with Wallace were tense and confusing, leading Wallace to say, "Oh boy, this is weird".

But with questions about obstruction of justice now swirling (many on the Left seem to have moved away from the "collusion" angle, probably because damning evidence stubbornly refuses to materialize), Comey hinted heavily in his testimony that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be targeting Trump on the former front.

While aides have advised Trump to stay off Twitter, the president continued to weigh in Sunday as he spent the weekend at Camp David, the government-owned presidential retreat in Maryland. You said: "'He is being investigated'".

Sekulow was referring to a report in the Post this week that said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in November's presidential election was now also trying to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

Despite the reported discussions, his current legal team has not been changed, and Ms Gorelick has been preparing Kushner for a meeting with investigators from the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence.

"Look, you're asking me to pick up the phone on an investigation we don't even know exists", Sekulow said.

Also on Sunday, Sekulow appeared on CNN's Face The Nation and apparently confused host Jake Tapper so much that BuzzFeed wrote a story based on nine screenshots of Tapper looking perplexed during the interview.

"This is an individual as president of the United States, has the social media platform that reaches 107 million people instantaneously with a message", said Sekulow.
