Fireworks explode when Chris Wallace confronts top Trump attorney about FBI investigation

Insiders are anxious about links between Jared Kushner's current lawyer, Jamie S. Gorelick, and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who is investigating alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. "And that's the president, in his 140 characters, through his significant social media platform ... telling everybody, 'Wow, look at the irony here'".

Mueller, the FBI director before Comey, has not released any details on the investigation.

Prominent criminal lawyers have been contacted to possibly represent Jared Kushner in the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, The New York Times reports.

The attorney did the rounds on the morning shows on Sunday, appearing on CNN's "State of the Union", where he argued Trump is not under investigation, despite the president tweeting "I am being investigated" last week.

Meanwhile, other sources have said that the President is indeed under investigation for the highly unconventional firing of the FBI Chief.

But by Sunday, that report and the narrative that Trump was just a hop, skip, and a jump away from impeachment, fell apart.

"I don't think it's for me to say", Mr. Comey responded.

And so, investigators will likely try to determine whether Trump indicated in that meeting that he'd already made his decision, and indicated to them his reason for it, in effect enlisting them in an effort to create a cover story for the firing.

Asian Publics Lose Confidence in the United States in the Trump Era
Israel and Russian Federation stand out as the only surveyed countries which prefer President Trump over former President Obama . By comparison, 93 percent of Swedes had confidence in Obama and only 10 percent feel the same way about Trump.

Last week, President Donald Trump tweeted that he's being investigated over the firing of former FBI Director James Comey.

In this case, though, Conway and Sekulow are basically saying to ignore the president's tweet.

"There is a fundamental threshold question there that the President's authority to terminate the Federal Bureau of Investigation director is based on the Constitution", Sekulow responded. Kilmeade said. "You're his lawyer".

Sekulow was referring to a report in the Post this week that said Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in November's presidential election was now also trying to determine whether Trump obstructed justice.

According to 18 USC 4 and 28 USC 1361, if at the time Mr. Comey believed the comment constituted obstruction of justice, he was legally required to report it.

"I'm not prepared to say that there's proof you could take to a jury, but I can say that there is enough that we ought to be investigating", says California's Rep. Adam Schiff.

Both Coats and Rogers declined before the Senate intelligence committee earlier this month to answer questions about their conversations with Trump, but both said they had never felt urged by Trump to intervene in the Russian Federation probes.
