Trump’s Lawyer: The President is Not Under Investigation

Jay Sekulow said that President Trump is not under investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

Jay Sekulow, one of President Trump’s lawyers, told CBS News’ John Dickerson on Sunday that the president is not under investigation.

“The fact of the matter is the president has not been and is not under investigation,” Sekulow said.

Sekulow said that Trump’s tweet regarding the investigation was not a confirmation of fact, but rather a response to an anonymously-sourced story in The Washington Post.

Trump’s lawyer said that nothing has changed since former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony that the president is not under investigation.

He then questioned why the Justice Department would investigate the president for doing something that the Justice Department had recommended he do, referencing Comey’s dismissal.
