President Trump Not Under Investigation

Jun 19, 2017

One of the attorneys on President Trump’s outside legal team said that the president is not under investigation. President Trump fired off a tweet on Friday saying, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.” In an effort to tamp down speculation, Attorney Jay Sekulow appeared on Sunday news programs and repeatedly emphasized “the president has not been and is not under investigation.” “I can’t read people’s minds, but I can tell you this, we have not been notified that there’s an investigation to the president of the United States. So that — nothing has changed in that regard since James Comey’s testimony,” said Sekulow. Sekulow emphasized that the president was frustrated by former Directory Comey’s unwillingness to publicly announce that President Trump was not under investigation. The president believes rumors of investigation have hurt his ability to advance his agenda.
