'I am being investigated for firing the Federal Bureau of Investigation director by the man who told me to fire the Federal Bureau of Investigation director!
Fresh off a series of Sunday show appearances in which Jay Sekulow chanted "the president is not under investigation", President Donald Trump's lawyer appeared on CNN's New Day for a marathon showdown with Chris Cuomo.
Sekulow re-upped his argument from Sunday - that the president's tweet was a response to the Washington Post story that cites unnamed sources claiming Trump is the subject of an investigation into potential obstruction of justice. "That is impossible. The president cannot be investigated - or found liable - for actions taken he clearly has to do under the Constitution", he concluded.
"Has the special counsel Robert Muller formally notified the president that he is under investigation?"

"But you know how it works in Washington", Sekulow continued.
So I appreciate you trying to rephrase it, but I'm just being really direct with you, Chris. Blammo. Except that, as Seth Meyers pointed out on last night's Late Night, Trump is totally not under investigation, at least according to Jay Sekulow, one of the no doubt many, many lawyers Trump will employ for as long as he's in office.
The anchor continued, "The idea that Mueller wouldn't be looking at the circumstances surrounding the firing of the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation defies common sense". "But you're his attorney and you're saying the president, when he said that, was not accurate".
And on the question of whether President Trump taped his conversations with Comey - as Trump hinted he did - Sekulow said: "I think the president is going to address that in the week ahead. You could know. Why you haven't picked up the phone and find out is a little odd". If this legal team's strategy is to bore us to death, they may just succeed.
