A member of President Donald Trump’s legal team said the president is not under investigation despite his tweets suggesting that he is being investigated, The Daily Caller reports.
In a heated exchange with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace, Sekulow said that Trump “has not been notified by anyone that he is under investigation.”
In a separate appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” Sekulow said: “Let me be clear here. The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction.”
The lawyer also said that Trump’s tweet should not be taken as confirmation he’s being investigated but instead a response to an article by The Washington Post.
“That tweet was in response to a Washington Post story that ran with five unnamed sources,” Sekulow said in an interview with CNN’s “State of the Union.”
During an interview on CBS “Face The Nation,” Sekulow confidently declared that there isn’t any investigation into Trump because the special counsel’s office has not sent them any notification.
