President Trump is not under investigation by special counsel, attorney says

"But let me be very clear here, as it has been since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction", he added.

Sekulow told "Fox News Sunday" and three other shows that Trump's tweet was based exclusively on a Washington Post report, and he insisted Trump wasn't under investigation.

"The president is not under investigation by the special counsel", Sekulow told NBC's Chuck Todd.

In multiple freaky Sunday morning interviews an attorney for President Donald Trump insisted that the president is "not under investigation by the special counsel" despite reports that Trump is under investigation for allegedly obstructing justice for firing of former FBI Director James Comey. "And when President Trump tweeted "." he was referring to the Post article's claim, not confirming it.

During an interview with Fox News host Chris Wallace, Sekulow defended Trump's decision to fire FBI Director James Comey.

Trump has hinted that he may have taped conversations with Comey - in which the ex-FBI chief says the president pressured him for his loyalty and on the Russian Federation investigation while also urging him to drop a probe into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

They went back and forth for a while: Sekulow blasted the Post's use of using sources on background, while Tapper kept pointing at Trump's confusing tweet.

He told Wallace: "The president has not been notified by anyone that he's under investigation". If, in fact, it was correct that the president was being investigated, he would be investigating for taking action that an agency told him to take.

"The president has strong feelings about it and (what) I would communicate to the White House and to the world through this broadcast is, let this thing work its way through, let it be thorough and complete so no one will have any doubt", Rubio added.

The panel sent a bipartisan letter this month to White House counsel Don McGahn seeking an answer by this Friday. Meanwhile, the Congressional committees handling the Russian Federation probe have asked the administration to show any evidence and Comey himself as said he hopes there are tapes.

Schiff says if the panel can't get an answer then he believes a subpoena will be needed.

The news caused Mr Trump to lash out about the investigation - and seemingly confirm its existence.

"It's inconceivable he's not under investigation in the obstruction investigation", the lawyer said. "Witch Hunt", the president wrote in a Friday tweet.
