Trump Attorney Jay Sekulow: The President is Not Under Investigation (VIDEO)
An attorney for President Trump, Jay Sekulow said that the president is not under investigation on Sunday, contrary to POTUS Trump’s tweets earlier this week referring to it as a “witch hunt.”
NBC’s Chuck Todd began by saying that the president shouldn’t be afraid of an investigation if he did nothing wrong and claimed Mueller is ‘professional’ and ‘not a political guy’ despite evidence to the contrary.
Jay Sekulow responded:
Everyday the Washington Post and the New York Times are utilizing supposed leaked information about supposed investigations of the President of the United States, so his legal team and the President respond.
The tweet from the President was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking information to the Washington Post.
He’s not afraid of the investigation–there is no investigation, I want to be clear here. There is not an investigation of the President of the United States, period.”
The tweet Sekulow is referring to was sent out by President Trump on June 16th, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt”
I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt
