Trump's legal plan quite simple so far: Fight, fight, fight

Judicial Watch announces major lawsuit against DOJ — and it involves James Comey

The denial on Sunday by Jay Sekulow, one of several personal lawyers Mr. Trump has hired to represent him in the Russian Federation case, is the latest of many examples in which the president's aides and lawyers have scrambled to avert a public-relations mess created by Mr. Trump's tweets, off-script remarks or leaked private conversations.

Over the weekend, attorney Jay Sekulow appeared on CBS News "Face The Nation" and contradicted that claim.

The "man who told me" seemed to be Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who supported the firing and assigned Robert Mueller as special counsel in the probe of matters involving Russian Federation.

That assessment was at odds with a Washington Post report last week and seemingly with a tweet by Trump himself on Friday.

Sekulow also spoke to Jake Tapper on CNN's "State of the Union" and Chris Wallace on "Fox News Sunday".

Sekulow tried to get around Trump's claim that he was under investigation by dismissing it as a mere social media post, despite the White House's position that Trump's tweets are an authentic reflection of his views. "So he's being investigated for taking the action that the attorney general and the DAG recommended him to take by the agency who recommended the termination". Sekulow said Trump "thought it was in the best interest of the American people" to fire Comey.

Whether or not special prosecutor Robert Mueller is even investigating President Trump for obstruction of justice is far from clear.

"Trump's tweet doesn't just confirm that he's under investigation".

The president has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller. Sen. Senator Marco Rubio said Sunday that he does not expect Mr Trump to seek to fire them.

He went on: "I'm the attorney general of the United States". The paper said that Mueller had arranged interviews with two top intelligence officials, Dan Coats and Mike Rogers, to ask about previous reports that Trump asked them to intervene with Comey's investigation, and that they refused. "I think you're reading more into the tweet than what's there".

He was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and later further arrested over alleged terror offences . The source expressed his country's firm rejection of all forms of terrorism and extremism.

Sekulow responded that Trump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey does not amount to obstruction of justice, before sparring with Cuomo over leaks to the press. "Mueller's going to do his job". To register your answer to that question, scroll down and take the poll below on this page.

Finally, we know that Muellers investigators are also looking for “any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, ” as the Post phrased it.

The House Oversight and Judiciary committees have issued similar requests. Crowell was the head of the criminal division there, while Rosenstein served as U.S. Attorney under successive Republican and Democratic administrations.

"This is is going to move forward", he said.

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped those conversations.

The committee sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday. James Comey, who made it plain that he disliked President Trump from the beginning, kept notes allegedly based on his meetings with Trump.

Last week, President Donald Trump tweeted that he's being investigated over the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

"That signifies this president knew all too well that it was inappropriate", Schiff said. "Something about the way I was conducting it, the president felt, created pressure on him that he wanted to relieve", Comey told the Senate Select Intelligence Committee.

Trump essentially confessed that he fired Comey in order to forestall the Russian Federation investigation, telling NBC News interviewer Lester Holt in nationally televised broadcast that "this Russian Federation thing" was among his motivations for firing Comey.

Senator Angus K of ME said, "A lot of people have asked, when will we be done? There's a lot of information yet to go".
