"Then why did he say he was?"
"I think this whole game of recusal now, this is a nightmare", Gingrich said. We saw him dig deeper and deeper when it came to attacking the Hispanic judge in the Trump University case or insulting the Gold Star family of Army Capt. Humayun Khan.
"The FBI doesn't sit around all day and read tweets".
On CNN's State of the Union, Mr Sekulow sought to account for any confusion over Mr Trump's apparently precise words by saying the president could not "in a tweet, include all that is there". "The President's response was as it related to the Washington Post report".
With the frequency of the president's Twitter tantrums increasing as the investigation continues to darken the cloud over the White House, there is no telling what Trump may do simply out of desperation.
"The question is going to be though, what was the reason behind the firing?" The way the Director handled the conclusion of the email investigation was wrong. "I would ask that it be thorough and completed expeditiously and be very cooperative with it".
There has been growing concern among Trump and his allies that Mueller's past professional relationship with Comey is getting in the way of his investigation into Russia's interference of 2016 presidential election. "That's the constitutional threshold issue", Sekulow said.
The White House states that an incompetent Comey was let go because he created turmoil and spawned low morale throughout the Bureau.
"You're right, Chris. I can not read the mind of the special prosecutor", Sekulow responded.
The president has directed some of his frustration at Rosenstein and Mueller. Sen. "And that determination is protected by the constitution".
"These investigations continue to move forward", Rubio said.
On Face the Nation, host John Dickerson asked Sekulow how does he know for sure that the president isn't under investigation? As a result, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. "As a historian, I just don't believe it". Why would the president object to a thorough investigation - unless he had something to hide? "So his legal team and the president responds".
Donald Trump's personal lawyer seems to have a peculiar view of what "unconstitutional" means.
If Trump does fire Rosenstein, or he recuses himself, Mueller's investigation would be overseen by Associate Attorney General Rachel Brand who the Senate confirmed in May to be the third-highest ranking official at the Justice Department.
Sekulow argued that it would be impossible to indict the president for wrongdoing "because there is not an investigation". "But you're his attorney". "We're agreed, then", Wallace said.
"It was 141 characters", Sekulow replied. We need to know what happened so that we can ensure it never happens again. It was unclear whether his tweet about being under investigation was based on direct knowledge or new media reports that suggest Mueller is examining whether the president obstructed justice by firing Comey.
