    Default Trump attorney: There's no investigation of the president, period

    He was responding to reports that a Justice Department investigation has expanded to investigate potential obstruction of justice related to the president’s decision to fire FBI Director James Comey, as well as apparent confirmation by the president himself.

    “Let me be clear here,” said Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, on NBC's “Meet The Press.” “The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction."


    Last week, multiple reports said special counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections has expanded to include allegations that Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey, who had been leading the investigation.

    “I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director,” Trump tweeted Friday, in an apparent dig at Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who wrote a memo criticizing Comey and subsequently appointed Mueller to lead the investigation.

    According to Sekulow, the president’s tweet should not be taken as confirmation he’s under investigation.

    “The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post,” he said.

    “He's not afraid of the investigation — there is no investigation,” Sekulow added. "There has been no notification from the special counsel's office that the president is under investigation."

    What? The President was lying in his Tweets? Does that mean he is "fake news"?

    "The only thing we have to fear is.... fear itself!" Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
    "Be afwaid. Be berry afwaid" Donald Trump.

    There is a difference between the fact that no official investigation has been started (because there is no evidence) and the fact that Mueller and co. are searching every nook and cranny to find something they can make appear to be wrong against Dump.
    Dump's tweet was obviously referring to the latter.

    So he is not in charge of decision making. His picks have all been "insiders".
