  • President Donald Trump center with first lady Melania Trump and their son Barron Trump responds to a reporter's question upon arrival at the White House in Washington Sunday

President Donald Trump's personal lawyer said on Sunday that Trump is not under investigation in the probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential race, a statement that appeared to contradict a comment Trump himself made on Twitter last week. I didn't say investigation... The obstruction investigation, which the Washington Post first reported was underway late last week, is just one of a whole host of pressing issues reportedly on the docket for Mueller's team.

Last week I wrote that the biggest danger Trump faces from the special counsel investigation is not the obstruction probe, but Mueller's digging into the finances of Trump's associates. He told the Senate Intelligence Committee in his June 8 testimony he believed the president had directed him to drop a related agency investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

"But just because you haven't been notified doesn't mean you're not under investigation", Cuomo shot back. Does he believe the president, who says there's no wrongdoing here, or does he go after the president in the way James Comey wants him to do?

The Washington Post reported on June 14 that Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who was appointed after Comey's termination to oversee the Russian Federation investigation, had widened his probe to examine if the President attempted to obstruct justice, or intentionally tamper with investigations surrounding himself or his associates.

Mueller serves at the will and pleasure of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed him to head the inquiry.

On Friday, Trump tweeted that he was being "investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director!"

Sekulow says that Trump hasn't been notified of any investigation.

Gorkov was tapped by Putin to head up Russia's Vnesheconombank in January 2016, and Reuters reported that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is examining whether Gorkov suggested to Kushner that Russian banks could finance Trump associates' business ventures if United States sanctions were eased. They were obviously not in the know which suggests that either someone fed the Post disinformation or the newspaper didn't care if its report was accurate.

Gorelick is a partner at the WilmerHale law firm. Since the memos will undoubtedly play an important part of Mueller's investigation, it's not surprising that they don't want to turn them over.

"Now, my sources are telling me he's begun some preliminary planning", Pierre Thomas, the ABC News senior justice correspondent, said of Mueller on ABC's "This Week".

The president has denied that he has any nefarious ties to Russian Federation and has also disputed that he's attempted to block the investigation into his campaign's possible role in Russia's election-related hacking. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "Witch Hunt." Then, the White House sent out Trump's lawyer to contradict the president.

The White House has been given until Friday by the House Intelligence Committee to provide an answer as to whether the recordings actually exist.

Top aides and allies have urged the president to stay off Twitter. He said he told Mr. Comey "that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice needed to be careful to follow department policies regarding appropriate contact with the White House".

"And if we can't get an answer, then I think we'll ultimately need to subpoena those potential documents to make sure that we have them". Schiff cited the fact that the president at one meeting "cleared the room" of advisers and asked to speak to Comey alone.
