Trump’s Attorney: Trump’s Not Under Investigation by Special Counsel


An attorney for President Trump stated on Sunday that the president is not under investigation. He explained the president’s tweets this week referring to the investigation as a “witch hunt.”

“Let me be clear here,” said Jay Sekulow, a member of the president’s legal team, on NBC’s “Meet The Press.” “The president is not and has not been under investigation for obstruction.”

Chuck took exception to the statement given Trump’s tweets.

Trump tweeted that he was under investigation, seeming to reference Rod Rosenstein, calling it a “witch hunt”.

Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s attorneys, said the President wasn’t referring to any actual investigation in the message, but rather the news reports of one.

“The tweet from the president was in response to the anonymous sources purportedly leaking info to the Washington Post,” Sekulow said

He was referring to the Post’s report this week that Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the election now also includes a look at whether President Trump attempted to obstruct justice.

Todd wanted to know why the President was so afraid of the investigation.

“He’s not afraid of the investigation — there is no investigation,” Sekulow said, adding, “there is not an investigation of the President of the United States, period.”

Sekulow also said that the President knew by firing Comey, it would lengthen the investigation but he did what was “in the best interest of the American people”.

Actually, that makes deputy attorney general Rod Rosenstein’s statement more cogent. In his statement, he referred to the fake news stories.

If you put Sekulow’s statements about Trump’s tweets together with Rosenstein’s, they were both talking about the same thing – fake news.

Rosenstein said not to believe the leaks and the anonymously-sourced news stories. If you accept what Jay Sekulow is saying, they are all talking about fake news.

You have pretty much nailed it except for the EXTREMELY SINISTER acts by the Democrats who will destroy our country rather than accept different folks who have different ideas of how to govern, (PRES. TRUMP). I just hope that when the revolution starts, (and they will not stop until the bullets are flying and many bullets are coming their way to them and their families), that they and their families will be some of the first casualties, It is sad, to realize that this is where we are heading but you can’t teach old RABID dogs new tricks and if you don’t hit a mule in the private parts with a big iron bar, he will not pay any attention to you. Everyone remembers the joke about the mule which had two chances to get it right but on the third offer for him to start pulling the wagon and he refused, the mule was shot dead in the head. A portrayal of human nature. So if Trump and Company let themselves be pulled down into the mire because they don’t want to “hurt anybody” or want to portray themselves as righteous good guys, they are fools because like Chamberlain they do not realize that you can’t “dance with the devil” and come back with your feet”.
The Democrats have pulled and are pulling the oldest scam in the books and instead of telling them to sit down and shut up, the Repubs are crawling into a corner into a ball and sucking their thumbs.
The appointment of Mueller by Rosenstein at the wink of an eye by the most corrupt FBI Director ever served, Comey, is laughable if it were not a tool being used to bring down this once great Republic.
The Rinos, nor the Dems will not physically survive the coming shooting war, but they will not realize this until the 2nd Battle of Gettysburg has begun and they are in the middle of the shooting.
Obama believes he has sufficiently armed the left but he is sadly mistaken and he will go down with his family as well, no matter where he hides out. It will be Armageddon, and there will be no “time outs” or “do overs”. Sad, Sad, Sad, (where will little chuckie toad, and lil’ jonnie dick erson be attempting to hide out in their little cardboard forts in their back yard with the cover pulled over their heads??)
Mothers who pushed the violent rhetoric will be sobbing as they identify their kids at the hastily put together mass mortuaries crying: “Why, Why, Why” You li9ed Professor! And the Professor will say, no , madam, your lies gave me these youngsters to pervert their brains and now their souls……………..

My conclusion in this is there is a political, ruling class that one Cannot be part of Unless you have been indoctrinated first. THIS is the swamp that Trump spoke of, And the only reason I voted this time around. Isn’t it interesting that the powers that be, including media, make the assertion that one cannot serve in certain elected office Unless he has been a part of this system first.

As it was chanted during the San Francisco meeting of UnAmerican activities “What Are You Afraid Of”. What are these Republicans and Democrats afraid of in continuing this “witch hunt”. The Republicans have been adamant in wanting smaller Government and they GET a man who has actually put THAT proposal on the table and the Republicans run away as fast as they can like scared Rats. Our system has transformed into a single entity which should be called, “The House of Lords”.

We certainly seem to have a propensity for repeating history. How many times are we going to live this Russian narrative. I wonder if the plot isn’t more sinister. Leaders seem to have the fear this Democracy, this Nation, is so fragile it cannot withstand any outside influence no matter how benign. Many times have we traveled this road and in each case the end result was the same. Nothing came of it except the destruction of private individuals so those in power can maintain it and others can attain it.

It began in the early 1900’s with the Overman Committee which morphed into the first “Red Scare” after the Russian revolution. It had a decisive role in creating an image of a radical threat.

Then came the Fish Committee in the 1930’s guided by the principle of fervent anti-Communism. They conducted extensive investigations into the public, and organizations, who may have supported Communist activities. The targets were the ACLU and a “Communist” Presidential candidate. More authority was given to investigate further.

Committee investigation continued when in the mid 1930’s the McCormack-Dickstein Committee was formed. It held public and private hearings with testimony amassing 4300 pages. Its mandate was to get “information on how foreign subversive propaganda entered the U.S. and the organizations that were spreading it”. The Committee investigated allegations of a fascist plot to seize the White House, known as the “business plot”. Although the plot was widely reported as a hoax, the committee confirmed some details of the accusations.

Are we beginning to see a pattern developing here. We are seeing an unending fear generated by those in power. These powers of Government wield enormous power and can destroy lives. These previous investigations accomplished virtually nothing so why stop now.

In the late 1930’s and early 1940’s Another Committee came into being established by the House Committee on Un-American Activities called the Dies Committee reorganized from previous Committees. It’s purpose to investigate alleged disloyalty and subversive activities on the part of private citizens, public employees, and those organizations suspected of having communist or fascist ties. There were considerations into investigating the KKK but as one member remarked, “After all, the KKK is an old American institution.”

From the time of the mid 1940’s to the mid 1970’s the House Committee on Un-American Activities became a permanent standing Committee. In the wake of the downfall of McCarthy (who never served in the House, nor HUAC), the prestige of HUAC began a gradual decline beginning in the late 1950s. By 1959, the committee was being denounced by former President Harry S. Truman as the “most un-American thing in the country today.”

With the literal hysteria generated by members of Congress And the media we see a reawakening of the long tradition of Investigations. You hear the same type of concerns played out in the halls of Congress today as evidenced in the documentary “Operation Abolition” in 1960. They, too, believed they did what was best for the country, to save our “Democracy”.

The sinister conclusion that can be drawn is this is nothing more than a tactic by powers in Government to assure the public there are forces all around with the sole purpose of “undermining” Democracy. A person will accept any conclusion, any method, to subvert these enemy forces. In so doing the ensure their OWN survival of being IN power. It forces the public to be divided and Not unite against Their power. It is the most basic of strategies. Divide and conquer. It is perpetrated by Both sides. It allows both sides in Government to want for the same thing but convince the constituents each represent Their side. Why else is there never a change in Government policies when a different party is in control.
