Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 16, 2017 Sekulow said, “The president is not under investigation by the special counsel. The tweet from the president was in response to the five anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to The Washington Post.” He continued, “Let me be clear here, as it has since the beginning, the president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction.” “He’s not afraid of the investigation — there is no investigation,” adding, “There is not an investigation of the President of the United States, period.” Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN
