Vastavam web: US President Donald Trump is not facing any probe for obstruction of justice, a member of his legal team said today, contradicting Trump’s own assertion that he was under investigation for firing former FBI Director James Comey and being the target of a “witch hunt”.”Let me be clear here, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction. There is not an investigation of the president of the United States, period,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice.
Sekulow, however, said Trump’s tweet was in response to a “fake” media report with no “documented sources”.”The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post. He’s not afraid of the investigation there is no investigation,” Sekulow told NBC channel.”Let me clear. The president’s not under investigation, as James Comey said in his testimony, that the president was not the target of investigation on three different occasions,” Sekulow told CNN in another interview.
According to the Washington Post report, Trump was being investigated for possible obstruction of justice by the special counsel appointed to probe alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential polls.”The president was responding to that particular statement from ‘The Washington Post’, again with five anonymous sources. And again without even identifying the agencies. So no, the president’s not under investigation, has not been,” he said.”So the president responds – I want to be crystal clear here. The president’s response was as it related to “The Washington Post” report. He cannot in a Twitter statement include all of that in there, but “The Washington Post” statement came out that morning,” he said.
