Jay Sekulow, President Trump's lawyer, says there's 'no investigation' of the president

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein may be recusing himself from the DOJ's Russian Federation investigation.

It also appeared to be a criticism of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and had written a letter recommending the ouster of FBI Director James Comey.

"There's been no notification of any investigation", defense attorney Jay Sekulow told Fox News Sunday.

On Sunday, however, a lawyer from Trump's growing personal legal team indicated that his client, the president of the United States, essentially didn't know what he was tweeting about, or something.

It's hard to keep track of things when you're making them up as you go. "That's undemocratic on its face and a blatant violation of the president's oath of office".

The president suggested on Twitter that he may have taped conversations. But sure, nothing gets past him.

The Post, in fact, states in its article about what it sees as an unlikely alliance, that Rubio's membership on the Senate Intelligence Committee investigating Russian influence in the 2016 presidential race could be a factor.

"The president can not be investigated, or certainly can not be found liable for engaging in an activity he clearly has power to do under the Constitution", Sekulow said, referencing the firing of former FBI Director James Comey. "The Department of Justice has a long-established policy to neither confirm nor deny such allegations". Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said that the panel - overseeing one of several congressional investigations - is looking forward to getting a response from the White House on whether recordings exist.

The five people spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly. What is clear is that he could order the Justice Department to ax Mueller, which may result in Rosenstein's departure and would certainly intensify the uproar over the investigation.

The accusations have been repeatedly dismissed as groundless by both the Kremlin and the Trump team. "You're saying that the president, when he said that, was not accurate". The White House used a memo he wrote to justify Trump's decision to fire Comey, but Trump's firing of the Federal Bureau of Investigation director may now be part of the probe.

It is alleged that among those sent interview requests regarding possible connections between Trump and Russian Federation are Daniel Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, Mike Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency (NSA), and Richard Ledgett, Rogers' former Deputy Director, who recently resigned. "Witch Hunt!" Trump tweeted. An official of Trump's transition confirmed the lawyer's internal order, which was sent Thursday.

Trump however has regularly capsized official positions with his own candour on social media, and a senior Republican close to the president voiced concern on Sunday that, once again, the president had caused needless problems for himself.

And despite Trump's campaign pledge to improve relations with Moscow, there has been no significant improvement in foreign policy co-operation between the two countries.
