Washington - A member of President Donald Trump’s outside legal team says the president is not under investigation, contradicting a recent tweet from Trump.

Speaking on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday, attorney Jay Sekulow said the “president is not under investigation by the special counsel.” He said Trump’s statement on Twitter Friday was specifically in response to a story in The Washington Post about the expanding probe into Russia’s election meddling.

The president wrote on Twitter: “I am being investigated for firing the FBI Director by the man who told me to fire the FBI Director! Witch Hunt.” The message apparently referred to Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general whose role leading the federal investigation has become increasingly complicated.

Your rantings are getting shriller and shriller, and more incoherent by the post. You must be so jealous that your candidate lost, and the President is here to stay for his full 8 year term.

Maybe seven years from now, when he's still in office, you'll come to grips with the fact that he is President.

Donald Trump IS the President of the United States. Sorry if that upsets you, but that is the reality. There will be midterm elections in two years and a presidential election in 4. Work for the candidate of your choice. Until then, if you are unhappy with a policy, express your dissatisfaction to your representatives in Washington. They are supposed to represent us. Make sure your voice is heard

What's crooked about Hillary? The Republicans have been persecuting her for over 30 years now, spending millions of personal dollars on lawyers and investigators, and millions of dollars in government dollars and lawyers and investigators and prosecutors, and they came up with nothing. Even when the Republicans have been in control of EVERY part of the government, with all power and access and budget, they found nothing. Not even enough for their own Republican lawyers to be willing to go to trial.

So what's crooked? She must be so, so, so, very squeaky clean if after all that, the Republicans found nothing. They can make baseless accusations because they have free speech rights, but why do you believe any of what they're saying after all this time and money and power they came up empty on any substance to bring before a Republican judge, by a Republican prosecutor?

The whole system is so openly twisted that the twisted is taken for normal. For example, Comey (one of the people in charge of uncovering leakers) is a self-admitted and proud, and confirmed (by his accomplice), leaker. It doesn't matter if there was or was not a federal crime involved in the leak (it does not even matter that the leak happened a few days after being fired). What matters is that it shows that Comey cannot be trusted (and it also raised the question what else did he leak or deliberately overlook). Yet the leftist media dump on Trump to impeach him for firing a leaker?

The list of Clinton open violations of federal law is ridiculously long. Even Comey himself publicly reported that Clinton did indeed have (what was at the time) classified materials stored on non-secure server. It does not matter that it was (according to the apologist) only a couple of e-mails that were actually classified. It is still a crime. But Comey also announces that in his opinion no prosecutor would take the case so he won't bring charges. Before that Clinton did indeed fail to report a string of conflict of interests / income. And so forth, but I am out of space.

You are correct she is not crooked in the sense of breaking the law. I think she is a master in that.

She is crooked in altitude. As wiki leaks confirmed during the elections, she made it very hard and nearly impossible for Bernie to win. Then she got the presidential debate questions from NBC prior to the debate. Her machine is well oiled while remaining within the legal bounds.

You're making all the claims that I've heard millions of times before, which you have a right to do because you and all the Republicans and all the Hillary haters have freedom of speech, but when things get real, why is it then that the Republican-controlled Justice Department won't bring a case before the Republican judges?

Very few have crossed the FBI and lived to tell about it.

So typical. You can't back up your claims with any facts so you say you ran out of space, though you were allowed several hundred more characters in your comment. How about even a link to a credible source? It's always these anti-Hillary ranters who can parrot what they've heard from talk radio or the likes of breitbart but can never back it up.
By the way, the credible so-called leftist media is not calling for Trump's impeachment. It's the right wing media that is distorting the words of what you call leftist media. Also, he fired Comey BEFORE he leaked his memo, but I guess that doesn't matter.
