Facing increased scrutiny over his role in the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the presidential election, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein still has the confidence of President Donald Trump, according to White House press secretary Sean Spicer.
An obstruction case against the president would require scrutiny of the drafting, intent, and background of Rosenstein's memo, which set forth the recommendation that Comey be terminated. "He had been thinking about that as well".
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.
"You say he can't be under investigation because I haven't been told, and that's a specious premise - you know there's no duty to tell you whether he's under investigation", Cuomo said.
Sekulow explained the president's tweet that appeared to acknowledge he was under investigation from the special counsel. "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?"
"I'm just one lawyer", Sekulow said. "Look, I'm a lawyer".
Sekulow says "I don't tell him what to write or not write".
Johnson ready for long game at Open
Ernie Els, the only South African US Open victor in the field (1994 and 1997), has been showing signs of getting back into form. It definitely helped with my preparation coming in because I knew I wasn't going to get here until Tuesday afternoon.
And not unlike others who advise Trump on personal matters, Sekulow regularly appears on Fox News, as well as hosts a syndicated daily radio talk show.

"You're his lawyer", Kilmeade told him. To make it even more hard, their client's public statements often threaten to undercut their work.
Sekulow downplayed Trump's tweets, saying the president is simply responding to what he sees in the media in a way that can reach millions of his supporters. "But the president does utilize Twitter and social media platforms and, again, the situation on Friday that created the five anonymous sources". As for Mr. Comey, he remains a shrewd and calculating defender of the rule of law and its instruments, positioned to defend them against a president he sees as an unprincipled political opportunist in a highly unsafe time for the country. "He shared the opportunity to respond". He must convince the entire world that the story printed in The Washington Post that alleges Donald Trump is under investigation for obstruction of justice is false, all while the half-wit that he's representing is tweeting shit like this.
"Now Mueller faces a huge decision", Thomas said.
Rather, the FBI is a component of the executive branch, with Article II of the Constitution assigning to the president the position of head of the executive branch, along with the comprehensive power to hire and fire personnel and commence or modify investigations at his discretion.
