Trump lawyer defends his use of social media

President Donald Trump has given his legal team a clear direction: Fight, fight, fight.

Sekulow also defended Trump's use of social media, saying he does not tell him what to write or not write, after the president last week tweeted that he was under investigation for firing Comey.

A member of President Donald Trump's outside legal team is defending Trump's use of social media.

It's a question journalists can't seem to get an answer to and the White House is now referring inquiries about the existence, or nonexistence of tapes, to Trump's personal attorney.

"That means there should exist on some server somewhere in the White House, a very thorough record of the kind of phone calls that nay investigator of the Trump campaign and the Trump White House's ties to Russian Federation any obstruction of justice regarding the investigation of those ties, should be able to access", Perlstein said.

On "Fox & Friends" Monday, Sekulow says that when people study the 2016 presidential election, they'll look back at Trump's communications as "the most successful utilization of social media platforms and communication in our lifetime".

Sekulow is responding on "Fox and Friends" to a statement that Trump's tweets can make it harder for others to do their job.

Meanwhile, Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, may be getting new legal representation as the investigation heats up.

He also dared the BJP to call mid-term polls in Maharashtra and said Fadnavis-led regime would be singed by unrest among farmers. While a host of BJP and Sena leaders were present at the Thackeray home, none of them were part of the meeting.

A source familiar with the Mueller probe said on Thursday that investigators would have to gather a large amount of evidence before an interview with the president would be warranted.

Then, Sekulow continued, Trump took their recommendations to remove Comey, and "now according to The Washington Post's theory, he's under investigation for taking the action that the Department of Justice told him to take". The department said last month that under professional responsibility rules, Mueller may participate in matters involving his former firm's clients as long as he wasn't involved in representing them and has no confidential information about them.

On Wednesday the House Intelligence Committee will hear from Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

And in a video made in collaboration with MoveOn.org, a progressive public policy advocacy group and political action committee, Perlstein says there should be some.

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 source familiar with the Mueller probe told Reuters that Mueller was also examining whether Trump or others tried to interfere with the investigation.

As evidence, Sekulow said that Trump has not been notified of any investigation.

Attorney Jay Sekulow is stressing that "the president has not been and is not under investigation". I didn't say investigation... 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.

Act III of this play concluded this morning-as Trump woke up and plugged Sekulow's latest appearance on state-run media before having some second thoughts.
