A Made-Up Story? Jay Sekulow Sets Record Straight on Trump Investigation

Finally, we know that Muellers investigators are also looking for “any evidence of possible financial crimes among Trump associates, ” as the Post phrased it.

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

"Political interference with an ongoing investigation, regardless of what the President's lawyer may say, could make the President a target, a subject, a person of interest", Blumenthal said. He's used the term repeatedly-notably last Thursday, when he said the " single greatest witch hunt in American political history" is being led by "very bad and conflicted people".

On Fox News Sunday, Sekulow seemed to confirm, as well as deny an investigation, as he defended Trump's decision to fire Comey.

Trump, who has denied any collusion between his campaign and Russian Federation, has frequently lashed out about the allegations, which have overshadowed his administration's efforts to overhaul the healthcare system, cut taxes and boost jobs.

The President and his allies have declared open season on Mueller and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who is overseeing the probe.

So the president is not under investigation. Yes, Trump abhors the selective leaks that have poured out of these investigations; he resents the false narrative that has been spun based on mere innuendo and often on inaccurate and sloppy reporting; and he strongly and rightly defends himself and his closest advisors from baseless accusations. In those meetings, Comey said that the President had demanded loyalty and on 14 February 2017 told Comey that he hoped he could "let go" of the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, who Trump fired in February.

What to make of MSCI's decision on China A-shares
One of the major events of the market this week should be MSCI's decision on the potential inclusion of mainland Chinese stocks . Chinese regulators have to approve any non-Chinese investment products, such as MSCI indexes, that include A-shares.

In a contentious exchange, "New Day" host Chris Cuomo rejected Sekulow's claims, arguing that Mueller did not have an obligation to inform the president he was under investigation.

An attorney for Jared Kushner says she advised the president's son-in-law to review his legal team after her former law partner was appointed as special counsel.

Prominent criminal lawyers have been contacted to possibly represent Jared Kushner in the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US election, The New York Times reports. "It's going to take a lot more than a few presidential tweets, or Newt Gingrich, to try to besmear this very good man". Both have been criticized by Trump and high-profile supporters of the president.

Rosenstein, in an appearance before Congress on Tuesday, declined to answer a question about his memo recommending Comey's firing by saying it could be part of the special counsel's investigation.

Asked on NBC whether Trump's social-media commentary may be created to intimidate Rosenstein or Mueller, Sen.

In testimony before the Senate Appropriations Committee on Tuesday, Rosenstein pledged that Mueller would maintain his independence and said he would not follow orders to fire the special counsel unless he believes "those are lawful and appropriate orders".

The question then arises, Would a reasonable prosecutor continue in an investigation of a constitutionally infeasible criminal matter?
