Trump lawyer Sekulow: President has no knowledge of being investigated

Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump’s legal team, said Sunday he has no knowledge of the president being the target of a federal probe, following Trump's recent statement suggesting that he is being investigated.

Jay Sekulow, a member of President Trump’s legal team, said Sunday he has no knowledge of the president being the target of a federal probe, following Trump's recent statement suggesting that he is being investigated.

“The president has not been notified by anyone that he is under investigation,” Sekulow told “Fox News Sunday,” in a heated exchange with host Chris Wallace about whether Trump could be under investigation without knowing.

“You don’t know that he's not under investigation,” Wallace said.

Sekulow responded: “I can’t read minds.”

Sekulow also said that Trump’s tweet that led people to believe he was under investigation was in response to a Washington Post story in which unnamed sources said the president was being investigated.

The FBI and two congressional panels are investigating whether the Trump campaign or presidential transition team colluded with Russia during or after the 2016 White House race.

Before Trump fired James Comey as the FBI director, Comey told the president he was not a target in the agency investigation. The Post story suggests the FBI probe, now being led by special counsel Robert Mueller, includes whether Trump obstructed justice by firing Comey.

“Nothing has changed since Comey said the president is not a target,” Sekulow also said Sunday.

Sekulow said Trump has never accused Deputy Attorney General Rob Rosenstein of “doing anything wrong,” and has expressed no opinion about him.

'Nothing has changed since Comey said the president is not a target.'

Rosenstein wrote a letter that seemed to support Trump firing Comey.

He told Congress last week that he would not fire Mueller “without good cause,” amid speculation Trump wanted to get rid of Mueller.

He also said he couldn't say whether Trump has discussed Mueller, citing attorney-client privileges.

Trump uses twitter, to bring attention to the fake news that passes as professional journalism, using all of their unnamed sources as facts...NO MATTER how many times they are proven false....The fake news & fake journalist's just can't see it....but the rest of America can!

Trust me, he has been under accusation, and investigation, every since he ran for office. The Democrats think they are a superior race, and should by right, be our masters. We should be their docile slaves. Trump is an anti slave leader. They want to paint him as evil. They will accuse him of every evil deed they can in hopes some folks will believe their lies. Without a strong leader, the Slave Revolt will crumble, and they can regain control.

He is secretly being investigated for being president. They want to make it unlawful for him to be president instead of one of them. He should abdicate, and let them rule the country, and the world. That is their belief. They should be Lord and Master, and we should be their obedient slaves!
