Jay Sekulow, Trump’s attorney, stated this weekend that despite his own tweet, the President is not under investigation for Russian collusion nor obstruction of justice.
His 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.”
“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.”
“There is not an investigation of the President of the United States. Period,” Sekulow told NBC host Chuck Todd.
